Fishing Overview

   Fishing is very difficult in the Winter in the ADK’s. We generally trade our local fishing outing for laps at Whiteface. With that said, there are some honey holes that fish during the winter months when it gets warm. Shoot a text to 970-946-6310 with your name or email flyfishing@hungrytrout.com and we can direct you to those areas!   As always, call the fly shop for the most up to date and detailed information 518-946-2117
