Spring Fly Fishing and Covid 19

As we began to hear word of a virus spreading the spring fishing was on fire! Cool temps and good sun made for some great days! Then we got locked down… I lost pretty much all of my April trips but was able to get back out again in May. Fortunately I have the rental and people were able to drive in. Post lock down fishing has been pretty good. Plenty of fish around but the interior fish have been relatively difficult to feed. So instead of an average 10 fish spring day we have been catching around 5-6. We have made it to the Chadeluer islands a few times which has been somewhat hit or miss. We sight fished some very nice trout on fly along with some pompano! It does seem like there’s a good bit of jacks around so that gets me excited for summer!

Fly fishing for Little Redfish to Save the Day!

With the Mississippi River much higher then usual we have had dirty river water invading are normally clear winter big redfish zones.  This makes for a tough day to just go target big redfish.  Although I will try for a while,  at a certain point I just want to catch some fish… Fortunately the little fish in the interior marsh have been very plentiful. Most fish are from 6-10 lbs with a good bit of 11-12lbers and the occasional teener. With all this little fish action already it’s looking like we are going to have a very good spring.
