Happy Holidays!

The holidays are upon us, and the fishing in our neck of the woods is slowing down.  The party boats out of Barnegat Light have called it quits for stripers.  The Doris Mae will soon be making deep winter 60 – 80 mile wreck trips for deep water, great-eating fish such as cod, sea bass, blackfish, hake, and haddock.  The tribs still hold some fish, but the pace will not be what it was a month or two ago.  For those still interested in wetting, or icing a line, remember the tribs are closed to fishing as of the end of the year.

That said, there’s still fly fishing to be had in the finger lakes themselves, a frontier of sorts for this fly fisherman.  From what I’ve read, brown trout, landlocked salmon, pike and lake trout are all possibilities for the finger lakes fly fisherman.

Wouldn't mind tying into a few of these this winter...

I’ll be delving into fly fishing the finger lakes in upcoming posts, and possibly put what I’ve learned into practice.

Also coming up around New Years is a post on goals for 2010.  I’m hoping that a softly burning fire in the fireplace, a good beer by my side, and pen and empty paper will all inspire me to conjure up some lofty fly fishing aspirations for 2010.  Stay tuned, and tight lines…

Happy Holidays!

  1. Merry Christmas! I look forward to some flyfishing with you soon! May you match and hatch and have some “fishy” holidays!!

    • ….. and if you really get jonesin’ to wet a line, please remember that in Pennsylvania the creeks are still open to fish until 3/1/10. Catch and Release Only. If you want to fish in March and prior to the April Opening Day, you can fish C&R in any “Special Regulation” waters.
