5-Day Outlook as of 1/23/23

Two fronts moving in but neither are super strong. Winds will be up but the afternoon incoming tide should provide a decent bite.

Techniques & Tips as of 1/23/23

Small flies are producing around oyster bars. Focus on mild current areas and use a fly that can get down with bead chain eyes or light lead.

Current Conditions as of 1/23/23

Fronts moving through during the week. We are lucky that we can fish year round. It isn't prime season but there are fish to be found.
