St. Simons Island - St. Simons Island

Tip of the week: 

Quick, casts with few backcasts. In the clear water, casting over a school of red fish will spook them just like lining a trout on a spring creek.

Seven-day forecast: 

It all depends upon the wind and weather.

We still have fronts coming through, but weather is milder. weather. Forecast for later in the week looks OK.

New Moon could dirty up the water.


Triple Tail are here. These make a good fly target.

Temperature is up and down. Wind is up and down.

I am so ready for these fronts to stop passing through.

Find a few days with stable temperature and weather, and the fish are eating. Fish seem to be more active on incoming tide.

Water was super clear last week. With the front that has just moved through, and the new moon, water will be dirty. You just have to move around to find clearer water.
