The Fourth of July and surrounding days usually are a great time to fish. This year we have had some obstacles, mainly because of the orders surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and adverse conditions.

Regardless, fish are being caught and my guess is that a big contributing factor is that we are in the full moon Phase for July.

I don't fish (not yet!) but just want to say I enjoy these fishing columns more than most 'news' items these days. They give so much detail about our natural world and about those lucky human beings who have learned to enjoy it peacefully.
