WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report Inland 10/15/2018

The inland side of things have been very good from the guys I know who are out, the fish are big and aggressive. The flies are all big streamers swung deep into pools and runs, one of my favs is a yellow bunny tail, tan body and brown hackle bugger.

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 10/15/2018

The LO tribs are still getting very good numbers of fish in them even though the water is dropping a little, the erie tribs for the most part are low and clear with some fish in them, the catt is just about ready now, but if we get any rain it will stain it up.

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 10/9/2018

The erie tribs had water in them and are dropping fast, the catt is unfishable right now. The LO tribs have had some nice runs of fish in them from the reports I have been getting, this hot weather is going to kill everything for now. We have cooler temps and rain coming for the later part of the week so cross your fingers.
