Getting Some Fly Tying Done



The rain that fall last weekend did a good job blowing out the Oak Orchard River and Sandy Creek. We may not be able to fish the Genesee River until next year the way the rain keeps coming. The Salmon River is the one river that is in good fishing shape right now. The way the weather looks, Sandy should be at fishing levels by the end of the week. The oak orchard will settle down soon. As for the cold temperatures, by the time the water settles downs the fish will have time to adjust to the colder water temperatures. Until the local river settles down, this is a good time to get some fly tying done. I don't know about you, but my boxes are looking a little empty.

If fly tying is not for you, and you want to fish, try fishing the Salmon River. With all of the high water the Salmon River has had this fall, fish the lower fly fishing zone. Remember the upper zone is closed until 4/1/07 and the lower zone is open all winter. Fish the pools and deep runs with black stone flies and large nymphs in sizes 12 to 8 and egg flies size 10 and 8. This time of the year I like to use a strike indicator to help control the drift.
