Fly Fishing During Covid

To say that the last year and a half has been difficult for fishing guides would be an understatement. Covid-19 and the economic shutdown nearly destroyed my business and many others in America.

Happily, after months of lockdowns, shutdowns and downturns, people are getting back to normal life, and that means chasing fish on the White and North Fork rivers.

Fall colors are showing on the hillsides, the Corps of Engineers has lowered the river levels on the White River and North Fork River, and that means there is low water for floating and wading for nearly the first time in a year.

Best of all, the brown trout are preparing to spawn, and there are large browns lurking and eager to take flies. Don’t miss the chance to fling flies while the water is low, the crowds are thin and the trout are fat and feeding!
