Heading North

Hello fellow fishing nuts. Me and old doggy are heading up into the wilderness this next week to get the stream side Chalet ready to see some fishermen. The dog has been watching me pack and knows where we are going. She is reluctant to let me out of her sight. The season is open and while it will be early, I have to say that in recent years some of the biggest trout of the season have been caught in this early period of the year. As you can see from this picture the dog has a tough time up here with no leashes, lots of squirrels to chase and a sunny porch to hang out on. Life is finite I suggest you book a trip today. I will post again next week when I get back, bye all.

Rainbows are running

22 Inch Wild Brown Trout - Adirondack Retreats

22 Inch Wild Brown Trout - Adirondack Retreats

This was a 22 inch brown caught last year at my place in the Adirondacks. You can watch me catch it on my youtube videos. Now to the point of this post. I have been getting reports from all along the Finger Lakes about the rainbows moving up the feeders and this would be a really good weekend to go get them. The very late spring this year has held the runs up till now and with all the rain recently, if I was not going to the Adirondacks this weekend, I would be starting the day on one of the feeders and then stream fishing for browns in the afternoon. One report came from a non fisherman said that he stood on a bridge over the inlet to Owasco Lake and said he watched big rainbows come up steady all day. This is a prime year to spend the first weeks after these hard fighting fish. They are so much fun in small streams and it takes a late spring to have a good chance at them. Worms and egg sacks are a real good bet.

Owego Creek 21 incher

21 Inch Brown Trout - Owego Creek

21 Inch Brown Trout - Owego Creek

Yet another early season beauty. This is a great early season stream and fishes well into early summer. I saw Bryans truck parked along the road as I was going out to do a filming session. He said that it gave him an amazing tussle and that was the only bite he had all day; I guess it was the right one. He was using my minnow system which I will be demonstrating in an upcoming you-tube video. I think the method I use just may be the most deadly method of fishing ever devised and I will have all the equipment needed here on my website, papabearoutdoors.com, in the near future. You can also watch this method in action on my youtube channel, user name adirondackwayne. I have a few reports from the northern Adirondacks and they are that the streams are in good shape for this time of year. That’s all for today, get out there!!

Second cast of the season

Here is a picture of that 20 inch brown from the Owego Creek caught on the second cast of the season. He fell to a Panther Martin and what a thrill to nail one like this on opening day. The water is very very cold and you have to be almost dredging the bottom to get them to hit. We are supposed to get some warm rain this week and this will help get some heat into the streams which are right now pure ice water. That is all for now, fish hard.
