When it comes to trout fishing, central NY is somewhat unique. Local streams originate in very different parts of the state. Some of the streams we fish originate in the rolling hills and farm country of the southern tier while others, to the north, originate in or around the Adirondack park or Tughill region. The streams to the south will generally begin to fish better early on as they will warm sooner. This is a great opportunity to "follow the hatch" so to speak.
Trips can be somewhat custom tailored so you can be on the water at key times that coincide with insect emergence. A hatch that takes place say the 3rd week of April on a stream 15 minutes to the south may wine down by the 1st or 2nd week of May but then that same hatch of insect will be starting all over again in streams 15 minutes north of us. This is a unique opportunity from a fishing perspective. A phone call is all it will take to work out the details. Rod & Raquettes will give you the best information we have available on fishing times and insect emergence to make your trip as productive as possible.
Chris has been an avid fly fisherman and fly tier for over 30 years. Both have been his passion for a very long time. Over the years he has been fortunate enough to have been able to fish over the state and in many cases 7 nights a week! There are many different aspects of fly fishing: the gear ... the fishing techniques ... the fly selection ... the aquatic entomology, just to name a few!
