Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 12/16/2018

The brown and brook trout are done spawning for the year but the next generation is currently in the form of eggs in the gravel. Please avoid wading through spawning areas. If you are unsure of what that looks like, Google "brown trout redd" or simply avoid walking through sand/gravel riffles and tailouts of pools. This can be a great time of year to fish in the Park. If you want solitude and a shot at a big brown trout, this is your best bet. If you want to learn about chasing this large post spawn fish, contact me for information on a guided fly fishing trip.

The tailwaters are all flowing high and keeping us mostly limited to streamers. With the continued wet weather, we probably will be limited to high water for the foreseeable future. Water temperatures here are coming down and Center Hill Lake surface temperatures are falling rapidly as well. Shad kills should be in our future for sometime this month and of course January and February and perhaps later into the spring. This fishing is very inconsistent day to day, but when you hit it right you might have the best fishing of your life.

Musky streams are up and down with the rains. We hope to get in a few musky floats soon. As always, check back here for updates as conditions change.

Along the Road

Long distance trips do not have to be all misery.  Sometimes the little things along the way are what make the trip.  By a small country road in Oklahoma, I found Indian Blanket growing in profusion.  This is the season for wildflowers!!!

    1. Howard, I'm not sure I have any favorites as I like them all, but if I had to choose this one would be high on my list too.

    It is great to focus on the beauty of nature and all that it brings us.

    1. Mel, I agree completely. I think we would all be better off if we slowed down and noticed such things a little more...
