Fishing is getting hot! Trout, salmon and bass are all starting to look up. If you're in the Western Mountains, caddis, caddis, caddis. Dark brown bodied Elk Hair Caddis and Green Caddis Larva nymphs have been the ticket. There are still some Hendricksons hanging around, but I can't imagine they will stay much longer up there. Onto the Light Cahills next, but you'll find us fishing caddis. Love this time of year!
Bass fishing is the same, but not quite looking up yet. Any day now that will change, especially with these hot temps. We're going to be doing some bass fishing in Southern Maine this week, so I'll put a report out later this week. Clousers and Woolly Buggers will get the job done. Fish 'em slow and set the hook! Get your poppers ready... it won't be long!
All of the pics below are from a couple of guide fish days. Fun to get out with the boys and do what we do!
