STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
Even with the above average temperatures we have experienced as of late here in SE Minnesota, the fly fishing remains excellent in the Driftless Area. Best to choose your time on the streams and location wisely to avoid the heat of the day and those areas with full sun bathing the water. Fish early and late and during peak times of the day, seek locales which have at least some shade provided by a full or partial tree canopy. Caddis and Lite Hendrickson hatches have been quite prolific at times and dry fly action has been exceptional. When no surface action is occurring, go to nymphs, emergers and Leech patterns. Guide season is in full swing and dates are booking fast. Don't forget, Father's Day is right around the corner! What better gift to give than a full day guided fly fishing trip in beautiful SE Minnesota .... or stop into the shop and pick up a gift card!
Below are photos from this morning's outing - 40 Brookies caught, all on dry flies ....the Good Ol' Days are right now!
