Spring in North Carolina is celebrated by anglers with the running of the shad on it’s coastal rivers. The Crystal Coast program participates in this wonderful natural event by fishing in Weldon on the Roanoke river, known as the Rock Fish capital of the world. There is an unbelievable hickory shad run in the Roanoke during the months of March and April. The high numbers of fish and the ease of catching make for a fantastic PHWFF trip.
Navigation of the river can be tricky, so Assistant Program Leader for Program Captain John Mauser coordinates with experienced captains and guides who donate their time and boats to ensuring that the programs participants enjoy a great day of fishing.
Springtime in Upstate New York is often plagued by snow, cold, and highwater. This is not new a phenomenon and it is often accompanied by the on-set of cabin fever - particularly for the passionate fly angler. The West Branch Angler & Resort in Hancock, NY is once again hosting an event that is quickly beginning to symbolize the on-set of temperate conditions and fishable water: "Come Hell or Highwater." This annual fly fishing, art, film, and beer festival celebrates the arrival of spring, the Catskills abundant trout waters, and the sport of fly fishing. Numerous Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Programs will be venturing to The West Branch Angler for the weekend of April 11 for a fun, educational experience. Additionally, PHWFF has been selected as beneficiaries of both live and silent auctions. In the coming days, a wide array of fine fly fishing items will be auctioned online to benefit PHWFF. Our continued thanks to The West Branch Angler for their support of our cause and the veterans we serve.

What a great day Project Healing Waters Knoxville had Thursday, fly fishing at Blackberry Farm. Everything was special beginning with our arrival to a warm misty day with the sun shinning on beautiful hillsides. The water was high but fishable.
