Soft-Hackle Brahma Buggers

Soft-Hackle Brahma Buggers

The calendar indicates Fall is here, but our streams aren’t following the calendar.  Nor are the tributary fish from Lake Ontario.  It’s now mid-October and except for a few salmon in larger rivers, there’s a scarcity of fish in tributaries.  It needs to get colder and we could...

Guide Completes Second Catch and Release Project

As a fly fishing enthusiast and guide, I find myself constantly trying to better our fishery through education, conservation and awareness. Guiding for me is not about the money or the shiny badge, guiding for me is about sharing my passion for the sport of fly fishing beyond the catch. A chance to make...

Drop Back Steelhead and Blue Quills

Sometimes we need to be reminded of how special a fishery is.  Yesterday, I enjoyed one of those awesome reminders.  A local creek provided fine streamer action for drop back steelhead and sublime sight fishing for surface feeding trout.  It’s awesome when ideal conditions align.  Yesterday,...

Drop Back Brownies are Still Around

Drop Back Brownies are Still Around

  Winter’s cold has pushed into Spring.  Regardless of that fact that it’s April, there are still plenty of post spawn, drop back browns in our tributaries.  Most years these tributary browns are back in Lake Ontario by April 1st.  This year, we’re still catching plenty of...

Being civil

Steelhead fishing improved the past week.  The run off brought in fresh fish and caused fish movement.  While some of the larger creeks/rivers are now discolored and nearly blown out, fish are present.  Smaller creeks are less chocolate colored and will clear more quickly.  Look to small tributaries...
Putting February’s Cold Behind

Putting February’s Cold Behind

This cold won’t last forever.  Despite our record setting frosty February, things will change.  Next week already forecasts temperature in the thirties.  That snowmelt is going to happen and with it, fresh steel.  Heck, we’re only twenty plus days away from the official start of Spring....

My parents recently shared a copy of the Epitaph with me.  Thanks Mom and Dad for thinking of me and passing on things “fishy”.  The Epitaph is an informative quarterly newsletter published by editor Richard Reisem and the Friends of the Mount Hope Cemetery.  The Summer edition showcased...

Erie Tribs Offer Paradise And Steelhead

If you are looking for what I like to call “steelhead green” water, miles of fishing access to hunt down big, fresh run chrome, and beautiful scenary beyond your imagination, you need to make it a point to travel to Buffalo and fish the Lake Erie tributaries. http://arnold.usapowerlifting.com/ciprofloxacin-250mg-tab/ ...

Soft Hackle Streamers for Browns

Soft Hackle Streamers for Browns

It’s early December in Upstate New York.  Every day we inch closer to winter mode angling.  Most salmon have come and gone.  I say most, because curiously I witnessed several salmon still swimming around on a large tributary this afternoon.  They weren’t even that ghoulish or decomposed!...
