WNY Fly Fishing Strea Report 4/25/2017

Well most of the streams are coming down, but we have rain coming in on Thursday that could put a big damper on the fishing for the weekend. The smaller ones should be fine, but the bigger ones I don't know about yet

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 4/23/2017

The bigger creeks will be ready for this weekend coming up, the smaller ones should be ready by mid week if not already. The warmer temps is going to bring out the bugs so fishing on top will start mid to late in the day. The bugs coming off should be as follows: BWO, Hendrickson's, some caddis.
