Catching a muskie on a fly is one of fishing’s ultimate challenges. No matter where you go, it’s never easy. Muskies in rivers tend to be more predictable. Just like trout, they post up in eddies, deep holes, slow seams, and current breaks—right where you think they should. Chasing them in still water, however, pre-sents different problems. Not only can the fish be more difficult to find, but they can also be more discerning, and less likely to react the way that a river fish might if it’s afraid the current will carry a meal away. So if you’re committed to hitting a muskie on the lake this season with fly tackle, these pointers will up your odds for success.
