As I mentioned yesterday, the weather has been far from ideal on the islands so far this summer. But, when the sun has shone and the water turns just a little warmer in the shallows the fishing has been very good. As soon as we get a heat wave the fishing is going to be off-the-charts great.
The main lake water temp around us is about 50 with the shallows hitting about 60 on our warmest days. If I could only have one fly tomorrow it would be something yellow.
The first two pictures are of Trevor, the son of Captain Dan of Fin Chaser Sportfishing in Ocean City, Maryland. Trevor wanted to take a break from all the big cool fish they catch at home and head to Beaver Island to chase carp and we did better than chase we even caught a few. Trevor taught himself to fly cast and even without having a double-haul was able to make some pretty good casts. When he masters the double-haul the fish better watch out.
