Fish America: There's Never a Bad Week of Fishing

December 15, 2010

[dme:image size="small" side="left" title="fabadweek [nid:1001337259]" index="-1"/]

Pictured here is a rainbow trout taken from The Lower Mountain Fork River in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. This is the only fish I’ve got to show for the week. A cold front moving in had trout on the river scarce and selective. I’m hopeful a trip to the White River in Arkansas, some legendary trout water, will offer redemption.One week, one rainbow; an abject failure right? The rainbow was caught by Oklahoma guide Greg Dodds. Greg, a father, husband, airline mechanic and former strong safety on his base team in the Marine Corps, loves fly-fishing enough to get up at 4:30 a.m. to make the three-hour drive from his home in Broken Arrow to Broken Bow. He makes this trek because if it seems to you like Oklahoma is a state short on places to drift a dry, then you’re right.

    Reds and Rain-1

    by

    Since outdoorlife.com launched it's weather page it seems the magazine's editors have been cursed by Mother Nature. First Gerry Bethge had a tornado watch interrupt the middle of his deer hunt in Ohio. Then John Taranto and John Snow had blizzards during their mule deer and elk hunts in the west. Now it's my turn.

    The first morning of my two-day redfish trip in Louisiana was a beauty: warm sunny weather with a nice breeze. But as the day went on, a large storm system began to move in from the west and it was clear that our day of fishing would be cut short.

    FISH AMERICA: Heatstroke and Aimless Wandering-4

    by

    My main challenge at the moment is the heat. Down here in the South, it’s hot. I mean they have a different kind of hot than a kid who has spent his life between the latitudes of Utica, New York and Hoboken, New Jersey is accustomed to. I mean like dripping-sweat, can’t-escape-it, am-I-in-an-oven heat. Everything black on my jeep is somewhere between scalding and melted between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. I can’t say for sure without an autopsy, but I think a stickbug I found on the hood of my jeep died from heat stroke. You can blast the A.C. for twenty minutes and wonder how you’re still hot. If you’re so hot you want to jump off the boat, think twice, the water temperatures are around 90 degrees in some of the Florida bays I’ve been fishing. There are nights when you put the pedal down, thinking there must be an edge to this heat somewhere, and if you go fast enough you can find it, but you can’t.
