Note; at this time of writing this update Oatka is flowing at 2.95 at this flow Oatka is at a good fishing level. However water flows are coming down.

Been off the trout streams over the past week. Spent some time in Florida doing a little saltwater fishing. Got beat up by the Tarpon and beat up by the weather. We had intense thunderstorms and high winds,
that kept us off the water at times. This can be very frustrating but what can you do you, pick your time for a fishing trip and you try to make the best of it. All said and done, Great trip, we caught some great fish and had a great time.
So what is going on with the trout fishing, as usual water flows are the biggest concern.  We still need to check water flows on the individual Creek and river  you plan on fishing. Over the past week we have received around 2 inches of rain. Even though it’s not raining everyday, we are still getting lots of rain. Looks like we are going to have to work around some high water while fishing the summer hatches. By now the tricos are going all up and down the Oatka creek. This is a size 20 mayfly, the timing of the hatch is in the morning. You will want to be on the water around 7 AM, Depending air temperatures that day hatch will around up sometime between mid to late morning. Do not waste a fishing opportunity just because water flow is a little high. If we did that we would not be doing any fishing this year. Keep in mind this time of year some of our best trout can be caught on streamers.
I will be doing some off the grid trout fishing later in the week.  It will be interesting to see how the trout have been growing this season.  When we have a wet summers like this, It’s always good for the trout.


I still have a strong and varied menu for trout fishing. From local morning Creek fishing to more off the grid brook trout fishing. If you need trout fix or having trouble finding water in fishing condition. Please feel free to give me a call cell 585-233-0436
