Last Swing

After spending the weekend at the Fly Fishing Expo it was nice to enjoy a beautiful day on the river. The river rose considerably today and took on quite a bit of color—very good things should be in our near future.  I spent the day doing what...

Good & Tough?

It's a tale of two different worlds right now on the Mo'. Good to excellent winter trout fishing is common place for RQ guide Jay Allen upstream, while the last two days for me has proven difficult with the two-handers for winter steel downstream. The...

Heading Towards Winter Mode

Conditions are headed towards winter mode on the Mo'. Currently the river is down to 1760cfs and about 37 degrees. Soft water edges have increasingly focused our attention over the past couple of days. New steelhead are still entering the system, however rosy cheeked steelhead are out numbering...

6 Degree Swing

Wow, 6 degrees at the start of our day today. I must say, it was pretty chilly! Joining me for a couple days are Jen from Dun the Magazine and Kurt from A Tight Loop. Temperatures rebounded pretty quickly and it wasn't long before we...

God Bless LR Browns

Wow, apparently there were a bunch of folks with cabin fever today! Certainly the weather this week has been anything but ordinary–that said, I'll take some adversity to keep the traffic low!  Water levels stabilized today, though I'd guess their going to bump it from all the melting snow. Water temps...

Winter Wonderland & Chrome

The Edlemans are with us for the next several days–yes, the packed everything they own to stay warm. This crazy winter storm just doesn't want to let go anytime soon. If you can endure the conditions, our river is simply stunning with all the fluffy...
