So it appears that Spring is in full swing as of yesterday. The trees are just starting to bud and the fish are looking up.

On a more serious note……we lost a dear friend recently.  He was famous for one of the greatest beards I have known and for being a hell of a fisherman and a very nice guy!  He received a great beard discount on a regular basis and I hope he still is wherever he is!

Nice fish Scott!

2/22/2017…Smells like Spring

While it is only the 22nd of February the weather has us thinking Spring. We’ve had some generally mild weather for the last week and there seems to be more headed our way. The creek is in pretty good shape. Warmer days have been producing some Blue Winged Olives. Some anglers report of seeing a riser here or there but nothing real consistent. There has been a good bit midge activity and fish feeding on them. Don’t be afraid to try a dry dropper rig with a midge. An Olive CDC Caddis to a black zebra midge is personal favorite rig for the early season. Keep your eyes open for the Little Black Stoneflies, they could be happening any day know. 

Mark your calendars, our Annual Spring Extravaganza is Saturday March 25th.
