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...

NC meets Winter Storm Pt. 2

Can't say the forecasters got it wrong this time! Snow, blowing snow, and bitter temperatures provided our less than ideal backdrop to our second day of steelhead fishing. In a normal January setting, we'd have waived the white flag, but with water temperatures providing us...

NC meets Winter Storm Pt. 1

It's November 17 right? Well, mother nature thinks its January 17–Winter Storm Warnings, snow and blowing snow, afternoon temps in the mid-teens! Sound like a perfect steelhead fishing vacation to you? I didn't think so, but honestly you'd have had to work pretty hard to convince these guys...

Persistence

The tough bite of late began to show signs of improvement today. Coincidently, this corresponded to about the same time the cold front passed through the area. The river level fell dramatically yesterday and popped back up a bit today to where I'd assume they actually targeted the drop. Water...

Steelhead weather

Cold rainy weather today–just what a good steelhead day should be! I wish steelhead liked high skies and 70's, but the reality is that they don't. After a steady rain today I'd expect a little bump in our water flows. This should usher some new...

Last nice day?

Joe and Dan both new to the long-rod joined me today for what looks to have been the nicest day of weather we're going to see for a while. Time will tell, but I'm okay with some weather. Water temperatures have dipped below the 50...

School chums & the two-hander

Big group of guys for next couple days–all chasing chrome on the two-hander for the first time. Conditions were seasonably mild today and with a big system on the horizon I'd guess things will turn soon. For now diligent swings and persistance goes a long way! Pictured...
