It's no secret that we need some rain. Trout fishing is toast unless if you get up north early in the morning or late in the evening. Play these fish very carefully and don't keep them out of the water for more than 3 or 4 seconds. We want to keep these fish around so that they get bigger for the future!
Bass fishing on the fly has been hot for us on the Lower Andro. Although flows are so low that we're scraping bottom with the boat at times, we're finding the fish. We're catching great numbers of bass because we're finding them deep down with sink line. That's the key this time of the year. Also, big flies equal big guys. Large articulated streamers can produce some big bass!
