Guided Fly Fishing on the Conhocton River
      New York State Licensed Guide #4407
 



                                                                                                                                                                                        















Join me on the beautiful Conhocton River for some enjoyable fly fishing.  
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned angler, I know you’ll enjoy fishing
this jewel of New York’s southern tier.  Large areas of public fishing access
provide a variety of stream conditions.  You can fish for a combination of
stocked and wild trout, or visit the two special regulation areas which are
not stocked, allowing you to try your skill on wild, stream-bred brown trout.
Conhocton River fly fishing begins in earnest when water temperatures
make the trout active enough to chase the bugs!  This usually means mid-
April and the Hendrickson hatch, although earlier fishing can be good
over blue quills and blue winged olives.  On the other hand, late southern
tier winters can push everything ahead into May!  Every year is different.  
Give me call or email.  I'll be honest about the current conditions.

RATES:   Half Day (approx. 4 hrs.)  $ 125.00 for 1 angler
                                                                   150.00 for 2 anglers

      Full Day (approx. 8 hrs.)   $200.00 for 1 angler
                                                        250.00 for 2 anglers

   Evening Hatch Special!    Have a limited amount of time
   to fish?  Join me for approximately 3 hrs. of fishing the
   Conhocton’s evening hatches and spinner falls, from about
   6 p.m. to dusk.

    Evening Hatch Rate  -  $100.00 for 1 angler
                                                 125.00 for 2 anglers

Fully rigged St. Croix fly rods with Rio Lines are available, but you can
certainly bring your own.  Also, bring your own flies or try some of mine.

You’ll need your own waders or hip boots, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug
repellent, camera, and rain gear.  Be sure you have your New York Fishing
License!

Call 607-776-4968 or email
gregflies@verizon.net for availability.





















There are numerous fishing charters on Keuka Lake offering trolling for
trout.  If you're interested in doing that, please contact me and I can give
you a list of licensed charter guides.  However, if you're interested in trying
your hand at fly fishing for bass, or just a day of fishing with fly or
conventional tackle for whatever bites, you should consider a trip with me
on my boat.   In addition to being a New York Licensed Fishing Guide, I also
hold a U.S.C.G. Captain's License, and a NY Joint Pilot and Engineer
License (the New York inland waters equivalent of a Coast Guard Captain
License).  My boat, a 19 ft. center console Carolina Skiff, running an
Evinrude E-tec 90 hp motor, is fully inspected and approved as a public
vessel.  I can comfortably fish three adults or two adults and up to two
children.

WHERE:   Trips are available on Keuka Lake, Lamoka Lake, and Waneta
     Lake.

WHEN:   Trips are available 7 days a week from mid-May into mid-
     September.   These lakes tend to have quite a bit of boat traffic,
     especially weekends.  If  possible, I like to fish late afternoons and
     evenings, or early morning to early afternoon.  Weekdays have
     lighter recreational boat traffic.

RATES:  4 hrs. - $ 250.00  for up to 3 Adults or 2 Adults and up to 2 Children
               8 hrs. - $ 400.00  for up to 3 Adults or 2 Adults and up to 2 Children

THE FISHING:     As I said above,  there are numerous charters offering
       downriggers,  side planers, and all the other equipment for
       trolling for trout.  I'm offering  an alternative for the fly fishing
       enthusiast, or just someone who may be on vacation and not
       have access to a boat and wants to do some bass fishing or just take
       a wife  or child fishing for a few hours on the lake.   We can look for
       smallmouth on rocky points, or try for largemouth in the weeds.
       Maybe  you'd like to throw some big plugs (or flies!) for the
       Waneta Lake muskies.   Maybe you just want to have some fun
       with bluegills and perch on small twister tail jigs.  We can also try
       jigging for lake trout in Keuka.  I'll try to accommodate whatever
       type of fishing you want to try.

       I offer fully rigged St. Croix fly rods with Rio Lines, or spinning
       and baitcasting outfits if preferred, as well as flies and other
       artificial baits.  I generally don't use live bait, but I'll supply worms
       if a younger child is involved. The equipment also comes with all
       the instruction you may need for an enjoyable outing.

       All bass and musky fishing is catch and release.  Take a picture of your
       trophy and get a fiberglass mount done - they're beautiful and
       they last forever!

       You're welcome to keep any bluegills, perch, pickerel, or other
       panfish,  up to the legal limit.  If we go jigging for lake trout,
       you may want to keep some of them.

WHAT YOU BRING:    Sunscreen, Appropriate clothing, Camera, Rain
       Gear, Your rods and other tackle, if you prefer.  Be sure you have
       a New York  Fishing License!

WEATHER:    Judging the safety of the weather is my call.  I won't put my
       clients or myself in danger. Thunderstorms, heavy rain, or strong
       winds may cause the cancellation of the trip.  If we can't go out
       because of bad weather, you can  reschedule.
