With the official start of summer around the corner, we wanted to talk about flies and tactics to use when going after those close-to-home locales filled with all sorts of warm water fish like bass, carp, panfish, and even pike & muskie. June and into July is when warm water fishing becomes a little bit more predictable. From the aggressive takes of piscivorous fish like bass and pike to the persnickety and technical line peelers that are common carp, there are plenty of challenges and exciting fishing to be had in many of our Front Range waterways, ponds, and lakes.
In this month's episode, host Ivan Orsic and co-host Tanner Smith welcomed Trouts' own warmwater guru Rick Mikesell to talk about flies, presentations and theories behind chasing those warmwater species with a fly rod.
If you want some suggestions for trout for the upcoming month of fishing, check out our selection of recommendations below. For the July episode, we'll be moving back to moving water trout.
We also answered a couple of commenter questions about rigging, bug choice, and fishing techniques. If you have a question about July fishing (especially warmwater fly fishing) - leave a comment down below on the YouTube video. If we pick yours, you'll WIN a Trouts Prize Pack - including prizes from Rising Fish and Umpqua! We're stepping up our game in this regard and we're excited to show you what we have for your upcoming prize packs with a little help from some of our favorite brands.
For the month of June, the Five Flies are available at our Denver location and online.
