Spring Steelhead

Generation Next

Teaching kids our craft is always fun! The Horbecks joined me today to continue their study of the in's & out's of spring steelhead fly fishing. The boys were a quick study and posed some very nice chrome for the camera. Pretty nice way to...

Glorious!

Spring gifted Ron, Bob, and me with some soft breezes, high skies, and warm—oh, so wonderfully warm—sunshine.  With temps popping 60, tiny mayflies and brown stone flies took flight, their wings fluttering, reflecting in the sunlight.  Steelhead, both winter fish and bright, newly run bullets,...

Special Day

Whenever i am privileged to host my former colleague and friend, Tom TenBrink, Jenison Public Schools Superintendent, for a day of fly fishing, it's a special day. Tom is an extraordinary leader who, with some terrific teachers and principals, have built an amazing school system....

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...

Ahhhhhhhhh

Double Striped Bucks

Too–?

Well, it wasn't too cold today which certainly was a plus. However it was really windy and WAY too bright! Our low–clear, cold water just isn't making it easy for us. Day one of the spring MRO trip featured quite a bit of teaching and...

Brutal Chill

All right already—enough is enough, let's boot this winter weather I'm WAY over it! Howling winds and temperatures in the twenties provided a ruthless back-drop to our day today. I'm must admit, I'd never have guessed we'd keep all 6 guys on the river for...

It’s Spring right?

Dancing snowflakes and a chilly breeze certainly didn't provoke any sort of Spring thoughts today. The forecast is for much of the same over the next few days. Steelhead were fickle today but some very nice river browns were eager! Pictured is a great river brown...

Sunny & Cold

Today's conditions on the river were far from perfect—bright sunshine and cold, not exactly a made to order steelhead kind of day. As the saying goes "you get what you get." Devin and Brent joined me today—both happy to just escape the office. While it...
