As the dust settles and the waters retreat following Irma's epic journey through the Caribbean and the US's South-East coasts, questions regarding the world-renowned fisheries that were in the storms path are starting to emerge.

After reviewing their detailed post storm report, it is clear that a number of our favorite destinations were luckily spared from the storms wrath and fury, including Cayo Largo, Cuba where Trouts has a Hosted Trip in conjunction with Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures. But while many parts of the Caribbean were spared, others took direct hits from the storm, and reports indicate it could be months, if not years until these places are fully recovered.

As noted above, Trouts and Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures will be hosting a week-long trip to Cayo Largo, Cuba in June of 2018, you can learn more about that trip here. If the timing and destination of this trip aren't what you're looking for, please be sure to reach out and inquire about the other options available to you in the many regions and fisheries of the Caribbean.
