Our Report

 

BEST TECHNIQUES:Fly fishing is an excellent way to enjoy Georgetown Lake. Try slowly stripping a leech, baitfish, calibaetis and damselfly nymphs through different parts of the water column. Emerging midge patterns are taking fish too.

OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK:  The rainbows are spawning. Try to let them do their thing if you can. There will be some fish that have spawned and dropped back a little deeper. Go for those fish, they’re hot and heavy!

7 DAY OUTLOOK:  Weather is looking good over the next week. Weather is looking good over the next week. Calibaetis should be along any time!.

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.

Good Luck From our Team!
