How are the weeds along the trout streams

3 posts in this topic

Due to the normal reasons, I haven't been down SE trout fishing for a few weeks. Are the weeds getting very tall along the streams? I am a beginner at fly fishing, so weeds are a concern of mine.

I went down to Whitewater last weekend and in most spots the weeds are waist high but in some spots they were up to my chest. The weeds make it trickier to fly fish but it is managable.

The weeds are getting to be about chest high in many places that aren't pastured, but you should be more worried about the horse flys than the weeds. They were absolutely terrible along a couple of streams I fished last week.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
