March 2011

These days are coming, maybe.

Father Ilnicki preparing to do battle with the Leviathan. He had prayed and tied flies well into the wee hours of the previous evening in a desperate attempt to create an offering that would appease the beast. Alas the monster evaded him but he has been tying at a feverish pace all winter long in anticipation of the struggle that will test all his faith in his limber and light equipment that he uses to cast his offerings of fur and feather. A religious workout regimen at the gym has helped to prepare his wrist and arm for the epic battle that he will face this June in the northern most Adirondacks. He peers from his alcove near Albany, NY and eagerly awaits the return of spring. In this long , long winter all his patience is being tested. I will see you in June Pat. I think all of us in the north east are about sick of the winter of 2011 and only faith is getting us through. Hang in there baby.

LETS GO TROUT FISHING!!!

Another beauty from a northern Adirondack stream. Let us show you trout fishing that few if any ever experience. All the while being in the serene setting on NY states Adirondack Mountains. We are still blessed with legendary trout fishing up here in the northern part on the state and we would love to put our numerous years of stalking and learning the secrets of these stream denizens to work for you. I have an operation located on the best there is here and in close proximity to a dozen other rivers of nearly equal quality. The result is a lifetime of amazing trout fishing all within an hours drive. No matter what the water conditions or time of year we can put you into some great wild trout fishing. We are open to all disciplines as long as catch and release of these natural wonders is the end result. Wild birds, casinos, golf, boating, sightseeing, life is good up here. All the contact info is on my website.

No end in sight

The winter just will not end here in the north east. Opening day of trout season is looking dismal at best. I knew when I saw Puxatona Phi,l with a knapsack over his shoulder and a sign that read Florida or bust, that we were in trouble. Even I, the most avid ice fisherman, have had about enough of this. For those braving the opener I suggest you think tributaries or small brook trout streams. Other than that everything else seems to be in limbo with no reports coming in from anywhere. Hang in there something has to change.

Magic time is near

Hi gang, the opening of trout season is approaching and the weather is finally breaking here in NY. It was a long winter and even I am about sick of it. I ice fished on the Susquehanna River from the last week in November till March the 9th. Then we went to flood stage and the Walleye season ended with a whimper. Now it is almost time for trout season. It appears that streams will be high and cold for the opener and that could bode well for the tributary fishing of the finger lakes. I have few reports from the Lake Ontario tributaries other than extremely high flow rates and a hell of a lot of snow in the hills. I am awaiting good reports and will post them as soon as the runs are commencing. The Adirondacks are still locked in winter and I anticipate a late start up there this year but that is always a early season crap shoot up there. That is all I have but here is a picture of an awesome trout caught on opening day years ago in the Derytur area of NYS
