Re: fishing report Oct 9

Nice! Good day to get out. I still haven't caught a tiger trout.

Re: Stream Conditions

I got out this afternoon and had a stellar few hours on-stream. Was north of I-90 and checked out two different branches of the same system. Stopped by one of my favorite spots - it was running high and dirty but would have been great for streamer fishing or maybe nymphs. Looked elsewhere and ended ...

Glass rods

Spinoff from the 5 rod topic... I've paid little to no attention to the fiberglass rods that companies are producing these days. Are any of you fishing the new (or an old favorite?) glass rods and what do you like about them? Always seemed a novelty to me but I'd consider it for a change of pace. I ...

Re: 5 driftless rods?

I'm a big fan of 9' rods, whether it's a 3,4, or 5wt. I have an 8.5' 5wt that I fish often and still occasionally wish it was 9'. I just like the extra length to get over tall grasses and the feel of the rod when casting. Those 3 aside, I've got a bamboo rod that I rarely fish (but still an awesome ...

Re: What type of Flyfisherman are you??

Weird article. I'm glad that guy got it out of his system, he's probably better off for it.

Cast to your own riffle, however that may be.

Re: 8/6 & 8/8 Report

Yep, majority were baetis. The other random mayflies ran a bit larger to ~size 16, even 14. Saw some oddballs in the mix that you'd normally see in May or June and occasionally there were larger tan caddis in the mix but most of the caddis were those smaller grays. Fish weren't too selective on fly ...

8/6 & 8/8 Report

Fished Friday 8/6 late afternoon, N of I-90 until about sunset, and got out for a few hours this afternoon, S of I-90 from about 1-4pm. Fishing was excellent both days, but Friday evening's dry fly fishing was some of the best I've experienced in a long time. There weren't many bugs on top or consta...
