We are coming into another turn of the fishing season. As the air and water temperatures begin to warm will start to see fish cruising both feeding and non feeding post spawn fish. There’s still plenty of big fish being caught on a daily basis. When seeing cruising fish at your feet they aren’t always going to eat. Don’t get fish envy and just continue to fish for the ones out of sight past the cruisers then fish it in close. Also the fish are spreading out and beaches that aren’t too muddy have all been catching fish.
Stripping sinking lines this time of year can be very successful. Plenty of post spawn fish are looking to fatten up quickly and will happily take some larger protein. Small to medium sized streamers and wooly buggers with a popcorn beetle or boobie have brought in most of our bigger fish this last week. White, black, olive, and brown have been successful colors
Indicator fishing is still great this time of year giving the trout an easy meal without wasting a lot energy. Keeping flies in the strike zone is crucial. Midges and nymphs in red, black, and wine have all been catching. We can also now start to turn more towards balanced leeches as well especially in low light or larger wave conditions.
The season is not over and the water is still cool for this time of year. If you haven’t got out this season you better come out soon while gettin’ is still good and the weather is nice !
See you on the water,
