Calling out the Flywarrior.  We hear there are fish to catch in Manhattan.  Let’s see them!

It’s okay to fish locally.  It’s not okay to travel long distances to fish.  So stay local for now.

We are following the State’s order and are closed right now.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:

Let’s keep the local pictures going.  Since everyone should be fishing local to their homes send us pictures of your locally caught fish and we’ll put them here on the blog.  Even chubs would be cool.  Email them to

Today’s selection of fish:


Marc kind of social distancing but he's on a river near his home!

Yesterday seemed like an all day snow shower.  We didn’t have any snow accumulation in the lower elevations but it looks like the mountains may have a bit on the ground.  The water temps are starting off a few degrees lower than yesterday but they should bounce back up today.  We’re looking at 46 degrees with a mix of clouds and sun.  The wind stays with us though at 10 – 20 mph from the North.  The wind has been tough for the last few days so it’s mostly been streamer and nymph fishing.
