Fishing Overview

  Rain has moved in and has the river rising in CFS, the river will be dropping today. With that being said, fish the banks hard with streamers and attractor nymphs. Limited in numbers as of right now but dry fly action to follow soon. The water temp is still cold so fish aren’t looking up to the surface just yet. Streamers (#6 Muddy Buddy’s in white, olive and black, Onno’s playgirl #2, Kreelex #4-6) and black nymphs (Fast Water Princes, Girdle Bugs, Zug Bugs) have been especially effective of late. We should see lower levels and better weather this coming week. Sean and Schuyler had a couple of hours to spare last night and had very good success with the streamers list above. The water temps are finally getting warmer and are making the fish more active which means more fish to the net. Needless to say, this has been a great start to the season.  The shop is fully loaded with everything you’ll need to have a great day on the water! Looking forward to a great season!   As always, call the fly shop for the most up to date and detailed information 518-946-2117

Specifics and Tips

  The temps are slowly rising so fish are starting to get more active. Focus on the pocket water but don’t be afraid to put more action into the streamer. Still early season so be patient and cover lots of water! Subsurface techniques prevail as trout will wait for water temps in the mid-fifties to rise. Short versitips with a 5-7 ips sink rate help in the faster water for streamers but are not essential for good fishing if you are fishing    For the best Specifics and Tips call us at the fly shop at 518-946-2117.
