Our Report

BEST TECHNIQUES:

Stripping leech patterns, calibaetis nymphs, damselfly nymphs, scuds, and dead-drifting chironomids and sow bugs. Dry fly fishing can be excellent mid-June through mid-August. Keep an eye out for rising fish. Cast just upwind of them.

OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK:

1. The SE shoreline is OPEN!
2. That said, anywhere else you can put a fly will work. We like sight-fishing in 1′-3′ of water
3. Look out for rising fish. They may be eating Calibaetis. Tie on one of our Calibaetis patterns and enjoy.

7 DAY OUTLOOK:

Fishing will be good through the entire season. The wind will pick up mid-day but calm down in the evenings.

Our Philipsburg location, Flint Creek Outdoors, is open 7 days a week, 7:30a-5p.  Stop in and talk to Josh for up-to-date information.
