Great show in a low key atmosphere. Plenty of time to meet and talk with some of the greats in the world of fly fishing! Be sure to stop by my table and say hi. I’ll be speaking on the pursuit of the Tangier Sound Slam. #stripedbass #speckledtrout #reddrum

Josenhans Fly Fishing is currently taking bookings for the Susquehanna Flats catch & release season that runs from March 1 through May 3. That being said, I’m only fishing April 10 through April 22, so I have a very limited number of dates available. Half, 3/4 and full day trips are available. Fishing license and top-of-the-line Sage and G.Loomis tackle is provided; as are my custom tied flies, ice, bottled water and soft drinks. The past two flats seasons have been a washout, so let’s hope the third times the charm. There was a good number of thirty-inch rockfish in the bay this past fall, so I’m counting on their return to the spring’s pre-spawn staging grounds. When it’s right, there’s nothing like it! Contact me to discuss your trip at 443-783-3271 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Crappie, yellow perch and pickerel are biting on the Pocomoke River. When the water temperature dips into the upper 30’s after several cold nights a jig ‘n minnow combination helps goad the cold-blooded fish into eating. As the temperature climbs above forty the panfish and pike will take flies and small plastics more readily. Catches of thirty to fifty fish per angler are possible when conditions are right. The water is clear and ice free so come on out and give it a try!

Unseasonably warm weather is keeping the bay water temperature in the mid-fifty degree range. This is prolonging the shallow water rockfish bite in Tangier Sound. While we aren’t necessarily seeing the numbers of several weeks ago the size has held steady with fish to 32 inches, with many in the 20 to 23 inch range. Great fun on fly and light tackle. Look for the skinny water bite to diminish soon as large schools of breaking fish have been observed in the main bay from buoy 72 south to below the MD/VA line. Either way, we look for a great end to what has been a terrific fall striper season.
