SURF FLY FISHING REPORT
Well back to the cold weather we go, its about time winter showed up! The mornings have started out pretty chilly at a warm 38 degrees. Luckily a little beach walking and casting heats things up pretty quick.
The fishing down here in Monterey Bay is starting to pick up! Over the weekend there were some nice numbers of perch caught, Saturday seemed to be the producer over Sunday even though the conditions were pretty identical. A fun WNW Swell filled in through most the weekend with almost zero wind in the AM making for some great Fly Fishing conditions! Had a great group of guys out who got to check off throwing flies in the salt and surf stripers!
Most all of the sand crabs are now carrying bright orange eggs so be sure to have some “hot spots” on your flies. Another messy swell mixes in this week which may change things a bit, but the stripers are just starting to show up and the fishing should only improve from here on out. We’ve been catching the outgoing tide in the mornings (High@5:30AM), but as the next few weeks go by things should line up perfectly for a pretty epic March! We still have a few spots open next month, but things are filling up fast. Hope everyone has a great week, stay warm, and we’ll see you on the beach!
