Since the Regan cousins haven’t sent us any fish pictures we’re assuming they are being humbled by their local streams

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:  Our flies are stocked and we will be adding new products over the next few weeks.  Hopefully this all passes soon.

Let’s keep this 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:

It looks like the release from Pepacton has been increased bringing the East Branch flow at Downsville up to 685 cfs.  The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 1,297 cfs. We should see another 1/4″ of rain this morning and keep the clouds in the afternoon.  It’s going to be windy.  Wundergound is calling for 20 – 30 mph from the North as the front moves in.  The air temp will hit 50 but will drop back to 30 degrees overnight.  Olives, caddis, stoneflies, and a few blue quills are around. Some hendricksons have been spotted down low but the wind today will make dry fly fishing tough.  Streamers and nymphs will be the best bet today.
