The Lodge at Glendorn's Tip of the Week

In the slow pools try streamers for trout, smallmouth bass, pike, and musky when floating. Sink tip lines with slow, deep presentaion during cold water conditions. During the summer months, watch stream temperature fluctuations throughout the day. We have been seeing Caddis hatching in the evening time with sporadic rising fish. Look for fish rising in the tailout sections of pools

Pounding banks with streamers during high water periods. Or early in the morning. Nymphing pockets during low water conditions. During the fall, swinging streamers with a two handed rod can be a very effective way to target large brown trout during wadable flows.
