BEST TECHNIQUES: Fly fishing is an excellent way to enjoy Georgetown Lake.
OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK: Fish damsels during the day, and calibaetis and caddis in the evening for explosive topwater action! Also, the water is warming up during the heat of the day. Keep those fish wet and make sure they’re fully revived before releasing.
7 DAY OUTLOOK: Water temperatures are in the high 60’s during different times of the day. Take care of the fish while releasing. Fishing will be good early and late.
Our Philipsburg location, Flint Creek Outdoors, is now open 7 days a week, 9a-5p. Stop in and say hi to our new manager, Josh.
