It is one of my favorite times of the year! Bass fishing has really come alive over the past two weeks. There are still some fish in post spawn patterns, but the majority are are cruising ledges and drop offs feeding heavily. Get some big streamers over them and hold on.
The Brook Trout streams are in perfect shape still and they are calling for a few showers throughout the week, which should keep their flows optimal. There have been drakes, caddis, and yellow stones hatching pretty consistently, so the fish should be willing to take a dry fly anytime during the day.
The one negative of this time of year is that we lose some of the Rainbow and Brown Trout streams. All of the delayed harvest waters opened up at the beginning of the month for harvest. There will still be fish for a few weeks, but look for those to slow down quickly as those fish are taken home to become dinner. There are still good options available, but look to the special regulation waters, specifically the spring creeks.
Don't forget Father's Day is right around the corner. A guided trip is always a great gift. #fishmoreworkless
