8/1/19 Fly Fishing Report

With the river running at 140 CFS we are in full summer swing! Top-water smallmouth fishing has been fantastic with double-digit numbers being landed every day. Pike fishing has been consistent with multiple fishing being moved each trip. Look for cooling temps in the weeks to come and fishing to stay hot! My favorite time of year is right around the corner, if you are looking to chase big Northerns then late September through November is the time. Get your dates booked soon!

Here are a couple of pics from the past week…
