    Frank at Chasing Tails Bait and Tackle in Oakdale reported the morning and evening trout sessions have been phenomenal this week. High water meant plenty of space for fish to hide, and anglers found them. On the fly front, the action is heavy on wooly buggers and egg sucking leeches, as well as caddis and scud presentations. Dry fly action is fantastic in the morning, and anglers have been having great luck with the Adams parachute, hoppers, and emergers. The shop is loaded with leader, tippet, flies, and we have customs available as well. As for lures, Trout Magnets continue to put in work, as well as the classic Phoebe and Kastmaster lures. Yellow perch, black crappie, and bluegills are all schooled up at the local lakes and are feeding heavily. Worms, hooks, and bobbers are all you'll need for a great day on the water. Lots of fun for the kids too! Find the shop on Facebook and Instagram (@chasingtailsbait & @fishlongisland) for pictures and updates throughout the week.
