General Fly Fishing / Re: Heading to Boundary Waters in September, info needed
« Last post by SirTrout on July 11, 2018, 06:13:30 AM »
The trouble I have with fishing a 6wt for bass is it just can't turn over the bigger flies.  I fish a 7wt most of the time for bass, but if I'm fishing large wind grabbing flies I will jump up to an 8wt.

         Take plenty of warm clothes.  Frost is likely in late September.

A 6Wt  should be find, it can handle bass but they will give you a fight on that rod.  I would take along a head kit so you can add it to your floating line if you need it.  Just take off your leader and add the head kit to the end of your fly line

Cortland makes a one, https://www.fishusa.com/product/Cortland-Mini-Head-Kits

Have a great trip and let us know how you do.

General Fly Fishing / Heading to Boundary Waters in September, info needed
« Last post by buglehman on July 04, 2018, 02:22:26 PM »
Hello
I'm am heading to the Boundary Waters in Late September. This is my first trip to BWCA so I am looking for whatever advice I can get. I have been doing a little checking for what is foragible at that time of year and definitely would like to bring a fly rod with me. I have a 4 pc Sage 6 wt. My reel is loaded with floating line and I wanted to find out if the fish will be going deeper at that time of year. Should I be changing it to a sinking line? Would a 6 wt be heavy enough? I have heavier rods but they are only 2 pc and would be more difficult to hike and portage with. Flies, I would think streamers, but what kind and size? I'm not sure of entry point or route yet. I would imagine that bears will be active and eating whatever they can find. I'm hoping to stay out of their way.
Thank you
Linda

O.T. "Off Topic" / Re: Morel Mushrooms

it was a really weird year for sure.  I did manage to find a few but just like you my normal spots didn't produce much and some not at all.  The only thing that saved it was a newer spot that out did everything else combined, probably picked over 100 in this little 2 acre patch of woods.  Seems like that are more people than ever shrooming and that's making my public areas tough to get anything out of.  I'll have to find more landowners willing to allow me to hunt their woods.

Just curious, but did anyone else have trouble finding morels this year?  I have a spot I find a few every year and I checked twice this year when I thought they should be out and there was nothing, not even old ones.  Thinking the weather this year had something to do with it but not sure.

I think that was the one that was on the episode of Pawn Stars.  He got about $12.5k if I remember right.
