Looks like Old Man Winter has a tight grip on us once again. Not a whole lot has been going on with the fishing this pass week. Everything in western New York is pretty much shut down. Either locked up with ice or is in extreme low water conditions. About the only game for Western New York is the Genesee River. Even here ice is a big concern between the shelf ice and slush ice in the river, fishing the Genesee River has been a bit dicey. We are going to need a lot more snow, ironically and a good warm spell to get the rivers and creeks flowing. For now the only real fishing we have is the Salmon River. Even here we are dealing with low water flows. The Salmon River has been flowing at 285 CFS. This is the winter minimum water flow for the salmon river. Even hear I do not foresee a flow increase any time in the near future. However as always we should constantly monitor waterfalls while planning our winter fishing trips. I have spent some time fishing the lower fly zone last week. We had the best action dead drifting black stoneflies nymphs about a size 8. Like I said not a whole lot going on at this time. Looks like we are going to get a lot of Fly-tying done over the next couple of weeks.
I do have a few notes to pass along, First we have finally posted three videos from Lost River Productions on my website. Please feel free to go to my website and have a look. Go to
