I'm pretty sure that I don't even need to post a report with words in it. The picture above sums it all up. This is what fishing is all about. As our kids get older, it makes me think of the little things when I'm on the water. Do everything possible to conserve these waters so that our kids can enjoy the same splendors that we have. Crimp the barbs, stuff excess tippet in your vest, put fish back quickly, etc. These are all small things that we can do that will have a big impact on our waters.
We've mainly been in the North country as fishing has been awesome. Hendricksons are still hanging around, black caddis are on top and green caddis larva are starting to pop on the riverbeds. There doesn't seem to just be one fly that is working, which can be rewarding or frustrating. The beauty of this time of year is that if all you want to fish is dries and emergers, you have that option most days right now. If you want to nymph and chuck streamers, you can do that as well. There are lots of options right now! Take advantage of the nice weather on the horizon and get your ass out there!!
