Summer Fishing in Connecticut

Summer Fishing in Connecticut

Water temps still on the rise, high 70’s, the early morning or late evening bite has been most productive. Largemouth and smallmouth seem to be most active. Again, handle with care, keep the fish in the water, remove hook carefully, and take a quick pic and release safely!

With the heat wave this weekend, be careful out there, drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen! Next week air temps will return to normal!

Been Busy Filming and Guiding Connecticut

Been Busy Filming and Guiding Connecticut

It has been an amazing month of June, here were are on the 2019 Summer Solstice, and it would be hard to put into words what the amazing month June has been!

From Filming, ‘For The Love of Fishing, What Ties Us Together’ with some of the most amazing people, to guiding new friends and old friends, I am so grateful.

Fishing has been incredible, smallmouth bass and pike are both blowing up on Top Water! Pogo Pike and the gang has been knocking it out of the park. Water temps are around 68 degrees and fish are happy! To book a trip reach out anytime!

Catch & Release! Water Temps Perfect for Pike!

Catch & Release! Water Temps Perfect for Pike!

Pike are fighting super strong as water temps are holding in the mid 60’s! , Do you debarb your hooks? It is a great practice for a healthy fish release and safety for yourself! Here is a quality fish and release with a debarb fly! Guide trip yesterday, we boated 4 pike and 5 beautiful smallies!

Connecticut Smallmouth HOT!

Connecticut Smallmouth HOT!

April Smallmouth are on fire right now. As the water temps seem to be holding around 44 degrees here in Northern CT, the pre-spawn smallies are starting to show off. Small flies and a slower retrieve seems to be doing the trick.

Pike are post spawn for sure. We are seeing fish with commitment issues and smaller males right now on the regular. Water flows are up and down with snow run off and mother nature dropping rain a few times a week but the clarity has been holding strong! Have dates available if interested in a guided trip!

Fly Tying - Pike & Musky Flies - The Compleat Angler

It was a fun day Saturday at the Compleat Angler Fly Shop in Darien, CT. Scott and Bob are great guys and the fly shop is second to none. Has everything you can ever need for gear and fly fishing. It was a fun day meeting new people, sharing my passion for big flies. I hope to come back next year and will definitely be a regular at the Compleat Angler in the upcoming season.
