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.

Fire Tiger PB&J

Think this might move some big predatory browns?  Try the PB&J in fire tiger colors and let me know if it works...

  1. Happen to have a recipe for this little gem? I'd like to give it a shot at the "secret" lake once the snows gone, that is.

  3. I tied a similar streamer using saddle hackle. I thought it would make a great brookie pattern. Don't know if I ever fished it.

    Yours should work on brookies and rainbows.

  4. David, I am with Mark on this one. A recipe or a sample would be an ideal gift for a BlogBuddy!

  5. I tied one very similar to this. Fantastic movement in the water and fish could not resist it.

  6. Sorry for the delay guys, but here's a link to an earlier post I did on the PB&J streamer. The main difference between the standard PB&J and the one above is the color on the rabbit strip. http://thetroutzone.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-pb.html
