As June comes to a close, so goes the halcyon mayfly days. Temps have already reached 70 on the Musky, and while we have had a great week, it is time to pay close attention to temperatures and think more about our state's wonderful ponds and lakes. There is opportunity for a variety of species using multiple techniques! Give popper fishing on the main stem of the Delaware, Spruce Run, or any local pond a a try. Trout, pan fish and and Bass will both take will rise to dry droppers, hoppers, and parachute ants. Watch the water after a breeze to see if any windfall insects reveal where fish may be working. Stop by for what you need to match this most popular hatch! Soft hackle and sparkle pupa patterns can be fished in a variety of ways, so get creative when things slow down. To prospect on top, try RS2s behind Caddis Patterns. Check out our brands: Winston/ Bauer, T&T, Scott, Ross, Galvan, Redington, Douglas, Cortland and many more.Guided fly fishing available through the season on demand. Gift Certificates available.
