Recent warm, sunny days and fluctuations in water temperatures are starting to impact the aquatic insect life in our local rivers. The anglers who have weathered the worst of the winter months can see increasing midge and stone fly activity and, if we keep looking, we can find the trout near motionless, but not quite imperceptibly, taking the minuscule offerings available. Fishing in winter typically is tough. Reports of large, holdover rainbows and accompanying brown trout are to be believed and many dedicated anglers appreciate this opportunity to target seasoned stocked fish before the next generation joins the ranks.
For the rest, this is the time to dust off the gear, check out the waders, and get ready to match the hatch as the mayfly cycles begin.
To best prepare for the upcoming season, and to fill the time when the trout stocked rivers are shut down (March 21 - April 9 at 8 a.m.), may we present:
~ Shannon's Private Waters exclusive presentation ~ get in the groove for spring
Hatches – a series of one hour fireside chats-
4 Tuesday nights in March 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. – on-line only
Tonight: 6:30 p.m. Tim Flagler
Euro-nymphing – from the basics to advanced techniques. Presentation will illustrate how to get started by converting a standard trout rod, say, a 9’ 5 weight into a functional Euro-Nymphing set-up and the multiple steps that can be taken after that to produce an advanced outfit. Presentation will cover not only equipment, but flies and on-stream strategies and techniques as well.
Tim is likely the #1 speaker on the fly fishing and tying circuit. Be there !
