A Return to Normal?

After a significant water event this past week it's great to see the water back down to a reasonable flow. Currently the water is 2850cfs and clearing. This water event should provide us with some great two-handed fly fishing over the coming weeks. Water tempertures...

God Bless LR Browns

Wow, apparently there were a bunch of folks with cabin fever today!

Cold, rainy, windy conditions provided a very "steelhead weather" back drop to todays trip. The steelhead remain very stubborn and are making this game of chess with the two-hander a rewarding challenge. Some of you might shrug your shoulders and say "well duh," but the...
