There were plenty of fish up river in a 1/2 mile stretch, let's use the number 300 for instance. Now figure a conservative kill of 20 per day, that's 200 dead and gone in less then 2 weeks. Leaving 100 fish or less. Help preserve our fishery by not killing the fish steelhead & salmon!

Flies & Tips

Spring brings the natural cycle of rainbow reproduction, Walt's Egg, early stones, flesh patterns with an orange/ cheese estaz wrap or two and small pattern egg sucking leaches. Nymphs and wets like the pheasant tails and hare's ears are beginning to produce erratically as this season too is off to an early start with the hatches. Streamers such as the Mickey Finn and Black Nosed Dace swung slowly in to holding and gravely areas will also be a good bet. After the spawn, these rainbows will turn to larger meals, wooly bugger time. Egg Patterns and Early Stone Fly Information click here. Practice and Promote Catch & Release Only!
Early-Mid Summer proven fish getters, are the dry crane, adams wulffs, black ants and stimulators. Wets and wooly buggers, small and large soft hackles and spider flies in natural colors. Great time to spey and swing flies.
Summer Dog Days requires adjustments to be made in presentation and depths. When there are no rising trout or swirls just beneath the surface, go deep from mid morning into early evening and then change up your tips to raise your fly into the upper 1/5 of the water column or full float to approach risers. Once you find the proper depth zone for that area, stay with it!
A Keen Eye with good polarized sun glasses for protection and to spot active fish are must. These will also help you decide on how to approach feeding fish and safe wading.
Experience is the key for added success, especially this time of the season. Allow me help you become a better fly fisherman. Watch for scheduled fly and spey classes and schools in the area, or call and set up a personalized day of instruction and a wade or float fly fishing trip.

Current Flows: Check the flows before your trip out. I tend to stay away when flows are above 500 as wading is difficult even for experienced and below 100 cfs is deadly for the fish.This is the Dog Days of Trout fishing. Early am or just as the sun sets may be your best bet. The hoppers are out in big numbers, terrestrial time for sure. Float the big n' uglies on the ripply faster water for day time success. Remember that this river rises rapidly and causes unsafe wading conditions from rains. Watch and be alert.

Cape Cod Fishing Reports

Chatham Area: Hard northeast wind the other day brought drove of fish onto the rips, we have June fishing in August.
by Capt.Tony Biski

Read and be sure to understand the tide charts and water heights. A must is to ask local shops about safety issues on your planned fishing spot. Good planning can result in a fun and safe trip. Pick the tides you want to fish. Good Luck and fish smart! If you’re new to the Cape or a seasoned angler, PFD’s are good investment to insure your safety for future fishing and be sure to scope out the area in the daylight to see what hazards you may be up against.
