38 degree water temps and the fish were active during bite window. A slow retrieve seems to do the trick. Water levels are still high in the rivers, the ground just can’t absorb any more water. Hopefully mother nature gives us a few more weeks. Tight lines!

Why Knot Fishing & SVS Fishing Podcast

Why Knot Fishing & SVS Fishing Podcast

Last week I attended and sponsored a 1/2 day guided trip to support our Veterans at a Why Knot Fishing Event in CT. It was a great time for a great cause!

This Sunday, December 2nd, I will be a guest on the SVS Fishing Podcast, we will be talking musky, pike, and guiding topics. I can’t wait! Here is a link to their website: https://svsfishing.podbean.com/ They have had some great guests on over the years, a ton of info.

Now lets talk fishing quick, the Housy here locally has been fishing well for trout, despite the constant up and down flows. A friend got into 15 fish last week. There is a solid window this weekend through Monday. Going to get out and pike fish and guide. Air temps look good and flows should drop by then, no major rain in the forecast. As the kids say, Tight Lines!

Musky Boot Camp

Musky Boot Camp

Another fall in Wiso hunting musky on the fly is never boring, Hard work, discipline, and grinding everyday can pay off. Hence, the fish here. I got my personal best musky on the fly. It was an epic experience with a good friend Dan Daly.

Guiding has been hot as well. I spent the last two days with fishy dudes from Maine, we boated 5 muskies in 2 days. Water temps around 48 now, but under a cold snap and high water. I hoping the second half of October is just as fun and rewarding as the first half.

Tight lines to all!

Pike Madness

Pike Madness

Right before heading out to Wisconsin musky hunting, The week of Sept 16th was epic. The pike bite was on, a few new clients getting their first pike on the fly, and multiple big girls in the same day fishing the major bite windows during the day. It was a blast.

Making memories with new clients having their first amazing pike eat boat side, there is nothing better!

Water Levels Back to Normal - Let Fall Begin!

Water Levels Back to Normal - Let Fall Begin!

After a few weeks of massive thunderstorms and heavy rains, the rivers shot way up and clarity was not good at all for weeks. I spent time wisely, and tied flies for a week, that and split fire wood for the winter, lucky me ;) 

Well, here we are, August 26th and flows are finally back to normal. Cool day and evening temps in Northern CT has brought the water temps down as well. This is a all a great recipe for the fall bite to start for larger fish, especially pike. 

The next 4 weeks should be excellent fishing!
