Fishing Reports

Dagmar's 7/31/17 Update

Bassmaster Legend David Fritts stopped by the shop today on his way back from the Bassmater tournment on Lake Champlain.  He spent time showing the new Berkely lures introduced at Icast that he designs and how to rig up various soft plastics.  He also gave some people casting lessons with the baitcast reel.  Boy can he cast!  All in all was a great day for everyone to meet an all around good guy.  Thank you David!

Finally I got a chance to write a fishing report.  Our store has been busy and are still in the process of renovating our new space.  That said, I have gotten out on the Walloomsac, Hoosic and Metawee rivers with plenty of fish to be caught.  Dry fly action has been spotty.  Some Sulphers and Light Cahills have popped up but not a lot of action.  Swinging wet flies is producing the most hooks ups.  Water temps have been 62-69 degrees and the levels have been on the high side this last week.

Bass fishing continues.  Everyone reports that they are catching.  Yamamotos and Berkley Digger crankbaits seem to be the ticket.

See you on the water,

We are still dealing with rain and high water conditions.  Most of our streams have been stocked.  Those who are dealing with the water flow are catching some nice trout. For spin fisherman, the Rapala lures are still the top seller here. Fly activity has been spotty. Woolybugers are your friend.  Looking up for the weekend though.. warmer temeratures and sunshine. 

Bass are now on their beds and everyone seems to be hooking up.  Ned Rigs have been flying off the shelves.  If you are in to Pike fishing, they have been active.

We have been stocking our shelves with a huge selection of Yamamoto Senkos, Yum, and Zoom products.

We are also now carrying Temple Fork and Cortland Fly Rods to compliment our Scott and Echo fly rods.

See you on the water,


Wayne's April 24, 2017 Report

Winter arrived in mid March and we still have cool weather with only a few warms days thrown in.  Our rivers have been running high but are finally reaching fishable levels. 

Lotsa nice browns were caught recently on spinning gear.  Rapala's and large spinners have worked. Fly guys are having some luck.  I was out the other day and small brookies were htting small golden stone flies.  The Otter Creek and Waloomsac River have been stocked with trophy trout.

We are still in the process of expanding our retail space.  With some good fortune renovations should be complete in a couple of weeks.

Turkey season starts May 1st.  Winchester Long Beard ammo is in stock along with calls and decoys.  We also still have a few turkey shot guns in stock as well. Gobble gobble!

See you on the water,
