Miami's Biscayne Bay and Biscayne National Park, Florida Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Spooky fish: I've been using a full clear floating line on the days when the fish are sensitive and getting more bites. The good thing about clear line, is that you can get away with a standard nine foot leader verses a 12-14' leader. The key is to always know where your fly is at all times. If your not used to fishing a full clear line, it takes some practice especially when using small flies like we use on the ocean.

The ecosystem lies within the water of Biscayne National Park. This unique geography allows us to fish out of the wind on most days when necessary.

Techniques & Tips

It's tarpon season, so that all I'm fishing for through the end of June and into The tides will be falling in the moring and coming in the rest of the day, so you will have to move around once the tide starts to fill in.
