River Report-02-26-21

The February weather has been amazing! The fish are running deep so heavy nymphing with scuds, worms, eggs and midges are the key. The presentation means everything. It must look natural. Most of the time you need more weight than you think you do. Hint! There is definitely more advantage to having two people in the boat rather than three. There are not many places you can wade three people until the fish start to come into the shallows. Fishing three people out of the boat is almostimpossible.

Spin fishing is much the same. The lure does not mean as much as the depth. Deep!

As far as kayaking it’s always amazing! Give MCO a call for your next adventure!
