Fall Salmon

More Than a Fishing Trip!

When three former colleagues and great friends get together on the river, it's sure to be more than a fishing trip!  And that it was for Dave, my former boss, and Tom, whom I supervised for years, who then took my position as Assistant Superintendent...

Iced by the front?

Long-time guests and friends Chris & Scott joined me today for their annual spring steelhead outing. After yesterday's banner successes and their fishing prowess I fully expected something special today. Our first hour or two went as planned and certainly fueled our anticipation for the...

A Family Affair

John, wife Chris, sons Sam and Henry, and pooch Buster joined Captain Steve and me for a day of fly fishing for steelhead and salmon.  The salmon run has built significantly over the last couple of days to the point of offering fishing opportunities more...

“Peace, Pace, Perspective”

Some years ago, I happened to notice on former Pastor Lou Lotz's appointment book three capital letters jotted into each days entry: PPP. Dr. Lotz explained that each morning, he made it a habit to jot down PPP—a reminder to himself to work that day...

Honest Fishing

Honest Fishing pretty much sums it up right now. No giant numbers, but honest rewards for a days commitment–probably the way it should be all things considered. We've just been spoiled for too long. The increase in water flow has run its course. New salmon...

Let’s Roll

As forecasted, big rains hit our entire watershed overnight and through midday. This should get the ball rolling on our fall fishery. The Nykamp group joined Jay and I today—while it isn't like years past everyone had their opportunities. Pictured is Dr. Dargo with his...

Shorts & Salmon?

This is not typical fall by any means. Certainly one shouldn't complain too loudly at these beautiful 75 degree days, but really these conditions are creating some seriously challenging salmon & steelhead fishing. On the other hand, our trout are very happy sipping bwo's, caddis,...
