Re: Silly question but are you allowed to fish for koi??

I'm not sure why you wouldn't be 'allowed' to fish for Koi. The bigger issue in my mind is- are you allowed to fish the water?

Respectfully, ted.... I have to say from your description---"Standing up in a kayak, while not a necessity to...

Re: Today's Still water mayfly hatch

I *think* pikefisher sorted this one for you with Hex (hexagenia). As was mentioned, they usually offer phenomenal fishing after the 8 PM hour.
