January Fly Fishing Report

It was a good month of fly fishing for schooled up Redfish & Sea Trout generally a couple days after the cold fronts pass through and as the weather became more mild. Lots of first timers catching there first Reds and Trout on fly. The water temps. stayed in the mid to upper 50s and clear most of the month helping make a good Trout bite. The Reds that took flies well were mostly schooled up in the holes and few on the mud flats. On one particular trip we caught over 60 fish on fly and light spinning gear with most of the fish being caught in the smaller creeks. The focus is now the American Shad run which is happening for the next 1-1/2 months down in the lower St. Johns River. Tight  loops and lines all!
