The winter time is in full swing with super clear and shallow water. The sight-casting for snook and small tarpon has been very steady-some really good snook this past week. Fly fishing in the Everglades this time of year has some of the cleanest water of the year and the shallow water makes them easy to spot in their winter time hiding spots! I just love this time of year- Usually waiting until 8 or 9am to let the fish warm up a bit and by mid-day the tide is moving and they are fired up to eat any fly or plug swimming around them. Unlike the warmer months these fish are tucked back in some very hidden areas and it is an adventure in itself just getting back in the jungle of the everglades. Im looking at the weather and looks like we have one more cold-front and then will switch gears to some bigger water towards the gulf of mexico. If you are looking for a Everglades fly fishing guide this is the time to book for the spring months as I still have some good May/June dates available.
There is only one Everglades!
Its been on fire fly fishing the Everglades the past week, I fished everyday and was very dependable with the warmer temps. Snook were very good and some big ones too on twitch baits and fly! Small Tarpon were fired up and when the water temperatures rose we got some big resident tarpon as well on the fly. I have been in the Everglades most days but fly fishing in Naples area has been great as well from what I hear. I am running an East Cape Caimen for my winter time backcountry trips which is able to access some very shallow water and sight cast for laid up snook of all sizes as well as baby tarpon in some deeper pockets while still be a comfortable ride for my clients. My tarpon season is filling up so please let me know if you are looking to book an Everglades fly fishing guide and we can discuss some possibilities. Thanks! -There is no place like the Everglades
