FLY FISHING — The upper reaches of the St. Joe River Road are still plugged with snow, but Sean Visintainer of Silver Bow Fly Shop found decent fishing in the lower river.  The river was clear and dropping and fish were keying on Brown Drakes, a hatch that's usually a bust for fly fishers because of runoff.

Still, he said the he caught the most fish fast-stripping streamers.

In case you didn't notice, the cutthroat he'spreparing to release on Sunday stretches from his forefinger to his elbow.
