Late Fall Fly Fishing

We fished most of the fall on the Chesapeake out of Kent Island.  Fishing was decent , but not exceptional as it can sometimes be on Eastern Bay and the surrounding waters of the Middle Chesapeake.

I am headed to Ocean MD  this week to do some fishing on the coast for striper and bluefish.  Reports have been decent from the last week, and we should be able to find some good fly and light tackle fishing.  We target the fish on near shore shoals and catch some really nice fish.  I will keep you posted as we get fishing.

Fishing on the Gunpowder river has been great, as we have had good constant water flows for the last few weeks.  Fish are taking a variety of nyph patterns well, and also chasing streamers.

My wife Megan and I fished one day recently between Bunker Hill and Masemore Rds. and had some decent browns fishing dropper nymph  rigs with phesant tails. The fishing should continue to be good through December, especially if the weather stays mild.
