Posts Tagged ‘Fly Fishing New York’

The extreme cold weather we have been having has most of the river iced or slushed up. The only section that is fishable is from Altmar to Pineville. The weather is supposed to improve the next two days which should lead to more fishing pressure. However the snow will keep some away.

If you are planning on fishing this weekend I would bring some snowshoes and get away from the parking lots. There is plenty of good water that is not going to be easy to get to. The best way would be by drift boat but if that is not an option snowshoes will get you there. Hiking into the north side of the trestle would be a good bet for sure.

You best bet for baits will be single beads in natural colors or small egg patterns. Egg sacks will also be a good bet in white, pink, or blue. The water has been low and clear. We may get a little run off if temps go above freezing this weekend but it won’t be substantial. Lighter leaders will help also. I would recommend 6 pound fluorocarbon.

Who is taking Monday off from work to go trout fishing?

I will be out for a couple hours Monday morning. Most trout streams near my house are Lake Ontario tributaries and therefore open for trout fishing all year around. Most of my time is spent fishing them for steelhead and lake run rainbows this time of year. Opening day however I like to travel north or south of my house in search of stream trout. It is a nice change of pace and I get to break out the fly rods that have just been sitting in the rack all winter.

This year I am going to head north looking for some large rainbows that I am hoping will still be up in the streams spawning. With the late winter we have had this year I am sure I will be all alone.

I will be offering guided trout trips in the Tug Hill region all summer long. These are all day trips that involve some hiking but will be well worth it.
