    It's not all about the Gorge and Black Canyon MENTION THAT YOU'RE PLANNING A TRIP to Colorado's Gunnison River, and a likely response will be something like, "Oh, cool—are you fishing Black Canyon or floating the Gorge?" Which makes perfect sense. After all, between the famed salmonfly hatch and national park status of Black Canyon, and the horse-pack/ rafting reputation of Gunny Gorge, it's hard to imagine a flyfisher having not heard of the Gunnison proper. But what about the upper Gunnison, near Crested Butte? Never heard of it? Join the club.

    This week I interview Shawn Brillon, the King of Swing here at Orvis.  He’s a master at strategizing on swinging flies for both Atlantic salmon and steelhead, and his strategy works for trout streamers and wets as well.  It should serve to get you jazzed up for steelhead season—I know it did for me.  In the Fly Box, we talk about landlocked Atlantic salmon, best all-around line for a switch rod, a basic saltwater outfit and flies for almost anywhere in the world, plus I get pressed to pick which three fly rods I would pick if I could only have three for all of my…

    To find the fish, follow the butterflies In March and April, depending on where you live on the East Coast, the first broods of monarch butterflies hatch from their chrysalis (a cocoon to you and I) and enjoy a short two- to six-week life span. They do what butterflies are best at: they flit around, eat flowers, look pretty, avoid elementary schoolers with nets, and dodge feisty birds. They will follow an irresistible pheromone-scent trail, find some butterfly love, mate, lay eggs on a select milkweed plant, then die. From these eggs, a second generation of monarchs emerges in May and June,…

By fall he’d raised 77 steelhead to his fly on Oregon’s famed North Umpqua River, landing about half of them. (Spencer keeps meticulous notes.) Yet there was a problem. Of the fish he’d landed, three had died—two of them wild. He’d also once brought in a steelhead eyeball on his hook.

Restaurants come and go quickly around here, but this place had a twist: A lily pad-filled concrete moat stocked with ravenous rent-a-bass. Even late into a summer pub crawl, I could see hotwater gamefish finning below the front deck, making predatory lunges at dip spit, lime rinds, and roaches.

Contrary to popular belief, the fly line is the most ‘technically driven’ piece of equipment. Yes, more so than your high modulus graphite or sealed carbon fiber disc drags. There are a wide range of fly lines available today to target nearly every fishing scenario, but for many anglers out there, choosing one can be a bit overwhelming.

After all, in the words of Grant, “bunny don’t fish unless it’s wet!” Whenever fishing subsurface flies, particularly large bulky patterns (streamers, flesh flies, or large…

  • Getting Out For Fall Fly Fishing

    16 Oct 2014 | 1:20 pm
    Fall fly fishing in the the region offers plenty of great opportunities. The cooler weather offers anglers some solitude of fly fishing while many are caught up with other fall activities. A little bit of preparation can be a rewarding opportunity for those who can make the time.Reproduction plays an important part of the trout lifecycle during the fall months for both brook and brown trout. Brook trout, native to the US, usually begin to spawn during late September through October. Brown trout typically start spawning in October through late November. I have seen this go later too.During the…
  • 2014 October Caddis Summit Recap

    7 Oct 2014 | 10:50 am
    This year we tried something new with the annual Quill Gordon Summit-we bumped to the Fall in hopes of better fishing. I would say the move was the right thing to do. The conditions were tough in God's Country, as water was low and gin clear in most every place we went. Despite tough conditions, everyone was able to find trout and the fishing was much better than it had been when we had our summit in the Spring. Mid to late April is simply too early to have great fishing in the Potter/Tioga/Clinton area. My dad, Sal, and I arrived at camp around 9am on Thursday after what was possibly the…

    17 Sep 2014 | 2:40 pm
    The 2nd Annual Pennsylvania Fly Casting Competition was held at the Carlisle Events Outdoor Show at the Carlisle Fairgrounds on September 6. Contestants were challenged for accuracy and distance events in several different skill categories. In the distance component, casters earned points for the length of their casts and had to place their flies within a narrow 10-feet wide lane. Accuracy casting required contestants to land their flies within 30-inch and 54-inch target rings at random ranges between 25 to 60 feet. Derek Eberly of East Petersburg, Pennsylvania, was overall high scorer as…
  • Where should I fly fish?

    This month Autumn arrived with the first proper rain storm of the season, just in time for Wendy to run the Rivington Half marathon a couple of weeks ago and almost three months since our summer break on Anglesey. After our break a lot of the weekends have been taken up running, walking or cycling round the Lancashire countryside. The hills around Chorley have been particularly colourful with one of my runs accidentally timed to perfection as I ventured over Great Hill and ended up surround by miles and miles of purple heather.

    After Thursdays time on the beach we were both feeling a little tender on our shoulders where we should have re-applied sunscreen a lot earlier than we did, nothing serious but still a little too sore for the blazing midday sun so we elected to have an easy last day (all our Anglesey days are easy) and go for our walk after an early evening dinner. It was to be a day of ’lasts’. We did our last run before breakfast, the 6k loop along the Menai Straits and past the Sea Zoo, it was still hot even early in the morning but the run was great and set us up for a day of relaxing at the cottage.

Once more we were blessed with glorious weather during our two week stay on Anglesey so in a repeat performance from last year we did our ‘beach day’ on Newborough Beach. After the 10 minute drive (it took us longer to pack our picnic) we arrived at the car park just before 10am. The weather was fantastic with blue skies, sun scorching the marram grass sheaths sculptures and a slight breeze to keep…
  • Fish from the Rocks at Aberffraw Headland

    After a lazy morning we headed over to the headland between Aberffraw bay and Porth Cwyfan where we’d walked a few days earlier to try a spot of sea fishing either side of low water. When we got to the spot we thought would be great to float fish and bottom fish we found it impossible to get on to the ledge we’d spied so had a quick rethink and explore and ended up fishing from a different set of rocks, not ideal as I wanted to fish straight into Aberffraw bay but the weather was great, seas calm and it’s always worth a go. I was fishing at distance with pulley rigs to keep…

    Terry Brown
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    Part of buying a boat to me is seeing it for what it could be as well as what it is. Stock boats are already set up with some great ameneties like engines, trolling motors, and electronics but I always like to add a little flair and feature richness to my boats. Buying a Ranger RT 188 means the factory has already thought it out, it is equipped well at the base model ready for the water and the fit and finish of the boat is at a premier level. The goal is getting more people into a Ranger due to price point, resale value, brand recognition and honestly, just being part of the Ranger Family.

  • 5 Soft Plastic Baits to Catch Walleyes Now

    Tim Allard
    23 Oct 2014 | 10:15 pm
    Autumn offers some of the year’s best walleye fishing. While many fall tactics revolve around hard baits, such as trolling cranks and jigging blade baits, soft plastic baits catch walleyes year round. Former Professional Walleye Trail professional angler and noted multi-species expert, Scott Glorvigen of Grand Rapids, Minn., frequently uses soft baits during fall. Internally weighted or rigged on a jig, he uses plastics on deep structures, weeds and rivers. Big baits and erratic tactics trigger reaction hits. Compact ones catch fish hunkered tight to cover, structure or current seams. What…
  • Optimum Baits Victory Tail Review

    Jason Sealock
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:55 pm
    I love to fish a soft jerkbait. It’s a nostalgic thing for me I suppose, growing up throwing soft jerkbaits for Ozark stream bass as a kid and later as an adult. So I’m always intrigued about throwing new soft jerkbaits for bass. I recently received some of the Victory Tails from Matt Paino at Optimum Baits and have been fishing them the last few weeks of the fall. The Victory Tail comes in 3-inch, 5-inch, 6-inch, 7-inch and 8-inch sizes. It comes in 17 different hand poured colors and have a uniquely designed and weighted tail and body that work in conjunction to give this jerkbait a…

It’s always interesting to hear how different anglers attack the same situations that many anglers face. How to narrow down what seemingly all looks the same.

    As I began my hour or so hike down the partially dry creek bed to get to this years favorite fall trout fishing spot, I couldn't help but notice that the leaves on the birch trees have not only changed color, but are also beginning to fall from the trees.  I would imagine that the three or four days of unseasonably cool weather that we had a week or so ago "triggered" the color change, but whatever it is that is causing the leaves to do their thing earlier than normal, I'm not complaining. I love to see the fall color change happen, because it triggers the real start of the fall trout…

    The title of this post is a but misleading as the trout in question would have "gotten away" no matter what seeing as how I don't kill any of the trout that I catch, but nonetheless this large rainbow released itself before I had the chance to land, admire, and release it.  In any case, as I mentioned in the last post I was having a good afternoon on the water, catching and releasing multiple rainbow trout that ranged in size from 9 to about 15 or so inches.Now I'm not sure if it was because the fishing trip was going so well or because of the fact that I'm really out of practice and…

    As I have said before, other than the dead of winter, there is no more difficult time of the year to rainbow trout that the hot summer months.  There are many reasons why this is true, but the most important in my experience is the fact that water temperatures often rise above the high end of the rainbow trouts ideal temperature range (61 degrees).  Once water temperatures start to climb above the 60 degree mark rainbows will become less and less active, thus making them much more difficult to catch.consistently catch Here is Northwest Montana where I live we have gotten lucky this…

    2 May 2014 | 2:55 pm
    One evening a few days ago I was casting a Rebel Magnum Pop R in Sexy Shad. The magnum poppers are closer to the bigger shad that are swimming around right now in the shallows. Water temps are in the high 60s so topwater is a must!  This bass weighed about 6 lbs. It was a thrill reeling it in.

    My Fishing Cape Cod

  • Dowses Beach Fish Pier, Osterville

    Garet Suomala
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:06 am
    This is a guest post written by MFCC contributor Garet Suomala I went fishing at Dowses Beach with Ryan a couple weeks ago before work. We fished on the fish pier instead of the nearby jetty, because the pier is a flat surface, which is much safer for me, compared to the slippery rocks of the jetty. The second reason I like fishing from a pier is because when we caught fish, it was much easier for me to take them off the hook. For example, my balance is not so good and it would not have been safe for me to try to unhook the fish while my feet were slipping all over the place. Also,…

  • Surfcasting Cape Cod’s Backside Beaches | Day 2

    Ryan Collins
    18 Oct 2014 | 2:01 am
    I watched as a set of breakers rolled in from the Atlantic Ocean towards one of the outer sandbars which ran parallel to the coast, about 50 yards offshore. The third wave in the set, which was the largest, curled at its top and fell forward, pounding hundreds, if not thousands of gallons of water into the sand of the bar. The crashing breaker produced a sound which bellowed into the evening air and echoed off the dune behind me. The ground on which I stood shook. The process repeated itself, time and time again, for as far as I could see down the beach. Searching For Bass Along The Backside…

    A view from the edge of America. I was feeling restless and I think Lauren could tell. Sometimes I feel an odd, uneasy feeling which permeates through my torso. Through past experience I’ve learned the feeling diminishes once I see the ocean and begin walking on the beach. Lauren understands, so without too much discussion I embarked on a 36 hour, overnight striped bass surfcasting excursion, to the famed beaches of Outer Cape Cod.

    The entire MFCC crew and I had arrived at the previous evening’s hot spot just as the sun crept above the horizon. As a group we had walked 45 minutes in darkness, through woods and along a cliff, to get to this spot at this very moment. I could see several birds hovering over water no deeper than two feet. The birds were quite adamant about diving and grabbing one of the small fish trapped in shallow. Based on their actions I figured peanut bunker were still in the area. Ryan Turcotte was the first to settle in and make a cast. 30 seconds later and he was hooked up! This was a good…

    There are creatures, plants, and other organisms that are used to gauge a healthy ecosystem and the Hellbender salamander's need for clean streams is a good example of this even if you never know they are there. I will certainly be a lot more mindful while wading the streams of Western North Carolina and hope to come across one of these dragons peeping out from underneath a rock.
