This week has been a clash of fiberglass and brown trout. Needless to say wade fishermen probably received quite the show as we had our first bout of minimum flow for the year. Even the most experienced of boaters likely “grazed” a rock in the pursuit of the ever elusive brown trout. Luckily for most, the bright sun and […] READ MORE >>
Editor Note: This week’s fly fishing report, and hopefully more beyond, come from the creative mind of Dally’s guide Adrian Hubbard, who takes over from an illustrious list of notables including the Gale Levin and Junior Schraeder.
