It Begins

Salmon have started to enter the lower stretches of our early running rivers. While numbers are down the sizes are definitely up. Reports  of salmon regularly pushing the upper 20lb range and even a mid-30's fish being caught off Manistee. Daily salmon reports will start...

AK Wrap Up

I am still basking in our successes from our recent trip to the far Western reaches of Alaska, it still seams surreal that only a few days ago we could gaze upon the Bering Sea, catch rainbows the size of our steelhead on 6wts, and...

Every Once In A While

It is not too often that I can get a couple of the RQ guys together for a day of fun fishing on the river.  Summer vacations and day-to-day river obligations seem to make days like today pretty tough to come by. Don and Jay...

July Spring Steelhead?

Wheres Waldo

Sorry to keep you waiting for a report! Life has been a little hectic around the Kuieck household the last week as i have been out most nights on the river, contractors at the lodge completely re-staining the entire facility, and packing for a weeks...

Memories

The last three days spent with Dan and his son Micheal were very memorable, not only was their company most entertaining, but the evening dry fly fishing was great. Isonychia duns by-far-and-away are the preferred floating meal, though drakes, sulphers, caddis, and a few bwo's...
