Our Report

 

BEST TECHNIQUES: Fly fishing is an excellent way to enjoy Georgetown Lake.

OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK:  1. Try fishing the mornings as the sun heats up the water
2. Try stripping leeches with a calibaetis nymph dropped behind during the day

7 DAY OUTLOOK:  Georgetown Lake is in fantastic shape for the fall.

Our Philipsburg location, Flint Creek Outdoors, is open Thursday-Monday 9a-5p.  Stop in and talk to Josh for up-to-date information.
