The mandatory 14 day quarantine for out-of-state visitors is having a big impact on some who work in the industry.

>>>Forrester said 90% of his guests come from out of state. With the current mandatory quarantine for out-of-state guests, he said he hasn't received a deposit for a trip since March. He said June, July and August are typically the busiest months of the year for fly fishing.

Forrester said, "A fourteen day quarantine, that's detrimental to us. I've got people coming in here June 1. I've got two groups. Both of them have actually made deposits. Both of them are old clients. If we don't open up before the end of May, they can't come because they invite people. And, then they pay for their airfare. If they don't know by May 15, then most likely, they are going to have to move or cancel."

The March Brown and Grey Fox Mayflies: confusion and mystery

QuoteUp until recently, both flies were classified in the genus Stenonema (March Brown, S. vicarium and Grey Fox, S. fuscum). Then at some point around 1981, W. Patrick McCafferty, professor of entomology at Purdue University, reclassified several members of the Stenonema group of mayflies into a new genus he named Maccaffertium. Not only that, but he also consolidated March Browns and Grey Foxes into one species, Maccaffertium vicarium. He also changed the name of the Light Cahill from Stenonema canadenses to Maccaffertium ithaca! So, from a taxonomic standpoint, the old names are out and the new are in, perhaps a tribute to McCafferty's expertise as an entomologist.

Here's how you can catch 20 American shad in just a few hours

>>>As soon as Edwards Dam on the Kennebec River in Augusta was removed in 1999, Willie Grenier of Waterville was among the anglers trying to figure out the new fishery that would result.
Some of his old haunts for brown trout fishing weren't as productive, but other spots — and other species — quickly teemed with fish. Among the fish that flourished: American shad, which were suddenly able to swim into waters that they'd not had access to in more than 100 years.

Colorado researchers spent decades trying to save disappearing rainbow trout.

Finally, they're making progress. Genetics from Germany and a hardy cross with Gunnison River trout seem to be overcoming a nightmarish parasite that causes deadly whirling disease

The Fishing Report: Fly Fishing for Halibut


>>>When David Bayes told me that I could catch halibut on a fly rod if I came to Homer in late May or early June, I was intrigued.

Since halibut fishing often calls for several pounds of lead, large circle hooks with bait and a rod and reel combination that feels so stiff if could lift a small pickup truck off the bottom of Cook Inlet, the idea of potentially hooking up with a several hundred-pound halibut on a relatively flimsy fly rod stuck in my head.

Authors roll two lifetimes of bluegill fishing know-how into one diary

>>>rom the miserable failures to magnificent moments, fishing authors and instructors Terry and Roxanne Wilson have rolled two lifetimes of bluegill fishing experience into a short 140 pages in their most recent how-to book.

For "The Bluegill Diaries: A Fly Fishing Chronicle" the husband-and-wife team pulled stories from more than five decades of their diary entries to update and enhance what they provided in their 1999 book, "Bluegill ... Fly Fishing & Flies."

>>>Wait before you judge. Take a deep breath. Because you can.

In the wake of the murder of George Floyd, I've seen countless people on social media expressing their rage — not about George's death or about the underlying problem of inequality in our country — but about looting and physical damage to property

How Fly-Fishing Practically Invented Social Distancing

>>>Without a shadow of a doubt, now is a time to be completely engaged. Between a novel pandemic and a social justice movement proving to be downright revolutionary, this is your time to secure the health of equality necessary for every thriving community.

Now and again, a break is healthy, whether it's a temporary ban on screen time or a day on the trail. One outdoors sport in particular feels particularly timely right now as it has some useful etiquette built into its very nature. That sport is fly-fishing, the hobby that practically invented social distancing.

There are exceptions to everything, but generally, fly-fishing is built on a framework of peace and quiet. Certain insect hatches or famous stretches of river draw larger crowds than others but for the most part there's an unwritten rule that a rather large personal bubble will be preserved while on the water, rod in hand. When you tie a fly onto your leader and prepare to cast, you sign an oath to both the environment and those looking to savor it

Fishing hat loaded with memories worth retrieving


>>>I walked across the four-lane highway and listened to a meadowlark. Saw the flickering tail of a deer. I picked up the hat and set it on.

Good hats are hard to find, I said aloud to no one.

Then I went back to the pickup truck, cut across the grassy median and trundled west to home.
