The spring thaw means full rivers and high currents are flowing and the fish began to move. These conditions are not the best for flies sitting on the surface, so try your luck with wet flies. Fish are hungry after a season under the icy conditions and wet flies are the best way to take advantage of spring appetites. Fish also seek out the warmer, shallower water, so fish close to the banks and away from any lingering icy cold shelves.
Whether you are perfecting your cast or mapping out details of your favourite fishing hole, there is always a reason to get out on the water. If you have a passion for fly fishing, there is no need to ignore it for months on end. Make your hobby a year-round affair by using each season to improve your skills.
