Fishing Report 7/3/2022

Summer is here and the weather has been beautiful!! The fish have been cooperating as well! Its the time of year that we are solely chasing Bass and panfish; with the potential of hooking into northern Pike as well. We have found that the bass are more active in the mornings and evening with top water and that sub surface is the ticket during the rest of the day. Chasing smallmouth on topwater is an absolute blast and they are one of best freshwater fights pound for pound in North America!

If you would like to book a smallmouth bass trip or are a first timer and want to learn the basics of fly fishing, fly casting and fly catching, get a hold of us!
