The rain just won't stop. I know we will need some of this rain be for the summer is over. If we could only can some of this ran for latter on, in the summer when we will need it. I do not have a lout to report on this time around. Depending on where you are we have received some were between 2 1/2 inches to as much as 5 inches of rain with this round of wet water and it is still raining. With the exception of spring creek, all of our creeks and rivers are way too high to fish, for now. The way the weather fronts are coming throw, it is looking like we will be doing a lout of streamer fishing. The advantage to fishing streamers, is that we can get on the water when the flows are still a little on the high side. In fact streamer fishing works best when the water flows are falling or rising, and this spring we are seeing a lout of these conditions. We will have one of those ideal streamer fishing opportunities once our creeks and rivers start to drop. Right now water flows are high enough that a trout cannot feed easily. As water flows start to received, a trout will go on the feed. After several days of high water, trout are going to be hungry and feeding activity can become aggressive. This is an ideal opportunity to pursue some of the biggest trout that live in your favorite trout water. These trout are not interested in eating bugs, they want meat. For flies use Willie buggers, Leach patterns, hair wing streamers. Depending on type of water you are fishing, fly sizes can range from size 8 to size 2. A general guideline to keep in mind is to keep the fly size somewhere around 2 1/2 to 3 inches. Big enough to get a big trout's attention and the small trout will not get hooked. But to small enough for a trout to easily take the fly, I like a black bunny Leach in size 6.

We have a new fisheries that is starting to come into its own. This is Atlantic salmon on the Salmon River. I will be returning to the Salmon River soon to fish for the Atlantic salmon. Because of the newness and sensitivity of this fisheries I may not do a lout of posting of my activities. If you're interested the best thing to do is call. I also have openings for fishing for local trout streams and exploring the fishing back on the salmon river.
