Teaching The Next Generation - Connecticut Smallmouth! Bantam Lake

Teaching The Next Generation - Connecticut Smallmouth! Bantam Lake

It was an amazing day with this young man and his grandfather fishing a Connecticut lake! To see the ambition and focus was a thrill. To teach the next generation of fisherman catch and release and making memories is always something special to behold!

A beautiful smallmouth bass from Bantam Lake!

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!

As the bass slowly coming off their spawn they are getting frisky and showing up more consistently each day! The pike, well, the pike are being cooperative and smashing flies left and right! We are only weeks, in my opinion from top water season!

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!
