With the weather forecast calling for highs in the 70s to low 80s, this is the week we begin to cross the threshold from summer to fall. We can expect the chilly temperatures to slow the morning activity and the better fishing will shift back to the middle of the day through the afternoon and into the early evenings.

The summer hatches will begin to wane and … Read More

The fish are going to continue to feed during the most pleasant time of the day, which in August is early and late. The morning and evening hatches this time of year can really be prolific and anglers should be prepared for selective feeders during these times.

Really the fishing is still quite good on all our rivers and should remain so for the foreseeable future, but the fish have wised up and the bugs have shrunk. This means the angler needs to up his game. Success will depend more on presentation, changing up techniques, and bug selection. It would be wise to attend a free casting clinic to hone your casting skills or sign up for our European Nymphing Clinic to expand your fly fishing … Read More
