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.

Guide Recommended Spotlight and Free Fly Box

Recently, I had the pleasure of guiding David from over at guiderecommended.com and his daughter Megan. He did a writeup about our trip. He interviewed me over lunch and the results of that interview is now on his website. Best of all, he is giving away a fly box. 

Now, this is not just any fly box. No, David has some beautiful fly boxes with custom quotes and pictures added. I've received some really neat gifts from clients over the years, but the fly box that he gave me is definitely one of the coolest. If you are interested in custom boxes, you can contact him to get your desired quote (or name or whatever else you can dream up) put on your own box. 

Anyway, in the meantime, head over to his website and learn how you can win one of these boxes for free. Good luck!
