STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
We had a momentary relapse into winter early this week with the area receiving 12" of snow but with temps cresting into the low 50's and some light rain this weekend the white stuff has all but disappeared. Once again the melt was gradual leaving the streams in excellent shape - running clear and Oh So fishable! Yesterday, success was found with streamers early until afternoon when the BWO hatch began which took the fast and furious action to the surface. The dry fly action will only continue to improve as Spring progresses, so be sure to stop by the shop and re-stock your arsenal of flies for the season .... and be sure to check out the new Orvis products and gear!
Looking for a special gift for someone (or for yourself)? Consider a guided fly fishing trip to the beautiful Driftless Area of Minnesota!
