The Thaw

Water conditions are changing quickly.  Less than a week ago, parts of Irondequoit Creek were iced over and unfishable.  Now, there’s open water, it’s off color and on the rise.  Sandy Creek was entirely iced up, as were several smaller tribs East and West of Rochester.  Another 5′...
So many good choices right now…

So many good choices right now…

Spring has sprung!  Fishing has been exceptional the past few weeks.  Your biggest angling dilemma may be where to fish.  Or, it may be squeezing time into your busy schedule to find time to fish!  This is the time of year when fly fisherman are in a quandary with too many choices for promising...
Late Season Steelhead

Late Season Steelhead

This week I had heard of much quality fishing to be had many places in and around Rochester. While I knew Irondequoit would probably fish well, I chose to fish Allen’s Creek. Allen’s creek is a fun summer fishery, but I had never trusted to go there for salmon, lake run browns or steelhead, as I...
Low Water and Managing Tributary Crowds

Low Water and Managing Tributary Crowds

It’s no secret that angling pressure ramps up in October and November.  Thousands of salmon and trout bring in a thousands of fisherman.  Recently, two friends counted 35 cars at the Sandy Creek/Route 19 Bridge.  The other day, I counted 8 cars at a tiny, 12′ wide creek well East of Rochester....
A Couple of Tips for Irondequoit

A Couple of Tips for Irondequoit

Over the past 3 weeks, I have enjoyed countless 2-3 hour excursions to different parts of Irondequoit Creek, but especially Powder Mills Park. The fishing is relatively easy, but technical. What I mean is, the fish aren’t selective, but they do demand good presentation. For example, on almost all...
Lakeshore Trout Right Now!

Lakeshore Trout Right Now!

  Yellow Buggers Casted From Rock Jetty After a guided trip with two customers on Sunday on Lake Ontario tributaries, I realized the rains had not produced as many fish in our local creeks as I had hoped for. Seeing pairs of giant Pike in the creek was a tell tale sign that it was the beginning...
Thinking Small and Natural

Thinking Small and Natural

My fly was the smallest offering fished.  Except for the small glow bead head, it was also the most natural imitation in the pool.  It stood out as something different, perhaps more realistic.  That’s why I wasn’t surprised when I hooked up.  Spin and center pin anglers were fishing various ...

Don’t Wait On The Weather

Don’t Wait On The Weather

Caught on a streamer on 2/17/2013. 20 degrees outside. As a guide, I walk and fish the tributaries of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario during this time of year in almost daily measure. I often realize how peaceful and beautiful the winter season is here in Upstate New York and how quiet and serene the fishing...
Zombie Salmon and Giving Thanks

Zombie Salmon and Giving Thanks

I left the tributary rod at home.   In my hand the four weight felt like a feather.  I just didn’t have the gumption to target tributary fish. I needed to get on the water, but this time preferred an easier approach.  It felt like time to casually roll cast streamers for local trout.   It had...
