WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 3/26/2016

Tom, Jeff, and myself went out for inland trout to get away from the crowds, forget about that. we saw as many people on the inland streams as you see on the tribs. The weather was nice and it's a holiday weekend so be it, the fishing was not bad for this time of the year, I got a couple of nice rainbows and browns on streamers, the stone flies were coming off and we had fish rising to them.

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 3/20/2016

Tom and I went out to my new property and to check out the stream, she was in great shape and the fish were very playful. Tom hooked three fish over 20" on streamers, but as luck would have it he lost all of them, I landed three over 20" with the biggest at 24".

Jeff and I went out for some steelhead action today on the Erie tribs, met some very nice people from Rochester and pointed them to some good water, (hope you guys had a good time) we did manage two steelhead and some suckers, I saw lots of fish moving upstream and swimming around. All of the fish were caught on pink sucker spawn.
