Wintertime Fly Fishing Forecast
Yep you bet!.. this is when the Spotted Sea Trout bite turns on! The clear and cool water temperatures that run in 50s-60s is what really warrants these big toothy fish to move into our backwaters and taking your fly with gusto! This is the time of year I like to wade fish St. Augustine either by walking a beach or traveling by kayak and or running the Skiff to my favorite holes in Jacksonville's Timucuan Preserve. Were mostly catching them with an intermediate sink tip fly line on the HD Clouser fly by blind casting and drifting your line through the waters current around structure. Our wintertime pattern also includes catching some Bluefish and Jack Crevalle in the mix with some opportunities to catch a Redfish as the water warms up toward the middle of the day. But mostly fly fishing for Big Trout is on the menu! Good luck and tight lines!
