Your Hometown Fly Shop
Summer is here and our streams are beyond safe temperatures to catch and release trout. When temps are a consistently over 70 degrees overnight on the South Branch, as it is now, the dissolved-oxygen rate is low. Too little oxygen means trout can not recover from the stress of being caught. Anglers earnest about protecting trout for a better Fall will 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 on your local pond a try. Pan fish and bass 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.
Check out our brands: Winston/ Bauer, T&T, Scott, Ross, Galvan, Redington, Douglas, Cortland and many more.
