  Yesterday was similar to the last few days in terms of fishing.  Streamers still seem to be your best bet to put a bend in your rod.  I checked a few spots on the East Branch and Main Stem yesterday afternoon looking for bugs and didn’t see anything of any significance.  The warmer temps […]

  The weather definitely improved yesterday and more anglers took advantage of it.  We got mixed reports from the West Branch.  A couple of anglers did well (given the conditions) fishing streamers while others didn’t.  One angler we spoke with was successful swinging white streamers on the upper west and managed to land a few nice fish […]
