This past week was not a good week for fishing. Old Man Winter did a really good job of letting us know what season it is. But with extremely cold temperatures and high winds did not make it comfortable for being on the water. Starting with western New York, As you can imagine all of our smaller creeks and streams are totally locked up with ice. As of now all of our open water consist of Oak Orchard River and the Genesee River. A word of caution here, If you intend to fish the Genesee River. There is considerable amount of shelf ice. This ice can, will break out from underneath you, not the good time for a swim. There is also some shelf ice on the Oak Orchard River, but nothing to be overly concerned with. Water flows on both rivers are in good fishing Levels. As for flies, I do not expect much has changed, Egg flies in your favorite colors and bunny streamers.

The Salmon River; we head a water flow of over 1200 CFS for most of the week. As of now the water flows are at 750 CFS. I suspect the water flow to either maintain this level or start to come down over the coming week. As always, we’ll need to constantly monitor the floats. Also keep in Mind that on cold morning there can be considerable amount of slush ice flowing in the river. On cold days, in the lower river this can be a problem all day. Best solution for dealing with the ice problem is to fish up River. Even the coldest morning the slush ice Is only a temporary In convenience. The slush ice generally clears up by mid morning. As always, experimentation and persistence was more important than one particular fly pattern. With the recent round of High water flows, we may find that there is a strong egg bite going on Also keep in mind that For whatever reason this winter you’re doing extremely good with the swinging fly. We have been having a best results with Intruded style flies. Keep these flies about two half to three and a half inches long. As always experimentation When it comes to color patterns.

Note;
The days are now shorter so is the time we spend on the water each day. I am running my winter special from now until March 15. The fishing day starts around 8:30 AM, on the water bye 9 AM until 3 PM. This is designed to take vantage of the best part of the fishing day.
