Smiling Lady Luck

The old saying "I'd rather be lucky than good" was quite fitting today. No, not because of the fishing prowess of today's clients, quite the contrary! Fishing has been anything but easy lately as you can read in our previous posts—today though, lady luck smiled...

Sunburn Special

Fishing with the two-hander is never easy, but under these high skies and summer-like conditions it surely separates the men from the boys! I couldn't have been more proud of my guys today—first time swinging, tough conditions, and importantly—determination! Pictured is Tyler with a well...

Summer Steelhead

Summer like conditions are becoming our latest complaint. While we welcome the beautiful weather, it is far from traditional spring conditions. Low, ultra-clear conditions are only adding to the challenge of our successes. Put all these conditions together and it means that every steelhead landed...

Brrrrr!

I'll certainly take snow over icy rain, but gosh it was cold today! Where is the global warming? Day two of three with the McKay group was certainly more hospitable than the first.  It was nice to be able to take a few pictures today. Pictured...

Great folks—Great Finish

Wrapped things up with Matt and Sandra this afternoon. What a difference having the river to yourselves makes! At the end of the count favored Sandra and even though that had to sting a little for Matt, I know he couldn't have been happier.Capt. Steven...

Windy but nice

Our run of extraordinary weather is coming to an end—cold, rainy weather is forecasted for the foreseeable future. Toughing out the wind today proved difficult, but both Matt and Sandra plowed through without skipping a beat. Tomorrow we'll test their Gortex and tanasity in some...
