WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 11/29/2021

 The colder weather has finally caught up with us and slowed the fishing down, the Erie tribs are low, slow and clear and very tough. The LO tribs have fish in them, but ten thousand guys at every turn so the fish are very pressured to say the least and please remember deer season is still open until Jan now so be careful

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 11/23/2021

 Deer season is here so be careful and wear bright colors if you fish in or around the woods, the fishing on the Erie tribs has been tough with low clear conditions and lots of people on the water. You have to walk alot to find undisturbed fish and use smaller flies
