Besides for trout fishing there is really nothing else to fish for locally. The nearest decent trout fishing for me is 3 plus hours away which makes day trips pretty difficult. The last time I went to the river looking for stripers all I got was a goose egg, I did see 4 bald eagles and that was very cool. I couldn't get close enough to get any good pictures. Its not flyfishing but several years ago I did a couple airboat trips with Steve Barnes Guide Service down on the river chasing blue cats. We caught several 40+lb blues on cut bait and snagged a couple paddle fish. Besides the cold weather the trips were very memorable and I have plans to do a future trip with Steve chasing gar and flatheads.
