  • 6.11.2022….DRUNELLA!!!

    Another drake hatch has come and gone. The Big Blue Winged Olive is on. Slate Drakes, Cahills, Suplhurs , Blue quill, Craneflies and assorted caddis to name a few others.

    We’ve got some rain and cooler temps. The fish are fat and happy.

    Our stretch of water at The Feathered Hook Lodge is cold and getting summer buggy! Book your summer terrestrial trip on the coolest water around!

    Summer smallmouth is heating up. Poppers, crawfish and minnows galore! Get a float with our guides targeting the pound for pound, hardest fighting freshwater fish you’re gonna find. We’d tell you it’s as much fun as you can have with your clothes on, but we’ll let you decide!
