Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day.  It was breezy at times but overall one of the nicest days this Spring.  Today looks good with some cloud cover moving in and maybe a bit of rain starting around lunch time.  Wind will be from the East 5 – 10 mph.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and caddis will cover most of what you see out there.  The water flows are dropping which should concentrate he bugs and make the fish more comfortable to feed.  The release from Cannonsville will be decreased throughout the day.  662 cfs is spilling over the dam.

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

Curbside pickup is now a shipping option 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
