FISHING REPORTS UPDATED DAILY

Cabin fever has officially set in, and we have seen a few more adventurous anglers over the past week or two. The good news is that we have some decent winter conditions for fishing right now, and people have been catching some fish on indicator rigs. Be sure to fish low and slow, and focus on the pools and slower water. The actual nymph pattern isn't as important as getting that fly right in front of the fish, so if you might only spend 20 minutes fishing a section in the spring plan on spending at least twice that much time during the winter, and adjust your depth until you find where they are holding. OUR RIVER FLOW AND TEMPERATURES NOw UPDATE AUTOMATICALLY!

NOTE: FEEDER CREEKS AND UPPER SECTIONS OF THE RIVERS ARE NOW CLOSED. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR REGULATIONS TO SEE WHAT WATER REMAINS OPEN.

Shop Hours: Thursday-Monday 9:00am - 4:00pm.

THE SHOP WILL BE CLOSED FRIDAY, MARCH 8th - SUNDAY, MARCH 10th WHILE WE EXHIBIT AT THE FLY FISHING SHOW IN LANCASTER, PA

The East Branch of the Delaware - Closed

The West Branch and Main Stem - The West Branch is CLOSED except for the stretches which make up the border of NY and PA
