Time for projects

04/18/16 – I know it’s not Friday but here a post anyway. Hit Bingham yesterday. 2,300CFS for a flow, in April, and 70-degree weather; couldn’t resist.  My brother and I waded in about 11:30am and found 38-degree water. We figured fish wouldn’t be real active so we rigged up with a heavy stonefly and a […]

Tape-Backed Caddis Wings

When Caddis are resting or skating across the water’s surface their wings are normally tented over their body.  There are lots of way to imitate tented wings.

08/27/10 – Things are slowly getting better. This morning I got 69 degrees in back of the shop for a water temperature so we’ve only got a degree of drop to go before trout fishing (at least in the Shawmut section) starts to come back. The rain we got was too little, too late – […]

07/23/10 – warm water

07/23/10 – Well it’s still hot but the nighttime temperatures are finally dropping and so providing some cooling. The forecast shows more low 60 degree nights and showers, all of which will help. The water temperature out back of the shop this morning is 74 degrees. Hatches are holding up with Cinnamon Caddis and other […]
