July Angling News

Summer has been flying by and we can’t believe it’s already July! The fishing has been great lately, with many new bug hatches. Come on in to Straightline and we would be happy to help you find the right fly to match the hatch! Our guides have been having some incredibly successful fishing trips with their clients, especially on private waters. We’ve been pulling some huge pike out of Grace’s, located down steam of Lake Catamount, this property holds a ton of opportunity for steamer fishing and dry fly fishing. Call us today to book a trip! The dry fly fishing has been great lately. We’ve had a lot of luck using PMD’s and Yellow Sally’s in the evening.
