Once again looks like we are getting significant rounds of rainfall.  These strong rainfalls do more than cause water flows to increase and caused the water to become discolored. This is definitely an inconvenience, however because we are getting all this rain we are going to have some excellent mid to late summer fishing.
This week was the week of fish hunting. Lots of bugs, but few fish to be found. I covered a lot of water up and down the Oatka creek this past week. Obviously we are still suffering from the legacy of this past winner and the damage from the fish eating ducks. Normally Oatka creek is one of the best creeks for fishing the Trico hatch. On the bright side, I have located several small pods of fish spread out over the miles of Oatke. So to sum up the fish population and numbers, As we all know the numbers are way down, But there’s plenty fish to keep things interesting if you’re willing to do a little hunting.  As for the Trico hatch it self, There is a strong hatch almost every morning. Expect the bugs to be on the water when it’s hot, some where around 7:30 AM and cooler mornings expect the bugs to hit the water somewhere around 9:00 AM. Once the Trico spinners are through, try fishing ants and Beatles. Keep in mind, Even though the fishing pressure on Oatka and the other surrounding trout streams has been later then normal this season. This does not mean the trout do not know the game. Cast accurately, wade carefully and plan your approach to the fish with care.
We have been working on a new website and it is now live.  There is some new articles and soon we will be featuring some videos.

I am still running my hatch special, We will be fishing from 7 AM until noon. This is an ideal opportunity to brush up on your summer trout fishing skills. Cost for the day is 200$ for two people.

I know we are still in the middle of summer but the start of salmon season is only four weeks away. It is time to start planning your fall fishing trips. Jay’s cell 585-233-0436
