Spring Steelhead

“Some Days Are Diamonds…”

Yes, and "Some Are Stones," but not today! An absolutely amazing day of fly fishing steelhead with attorney Pat and retired detective Terry: Chamber of Commerce weather, clearing water, and eager steelhead that sucked egg and stone fly patterns all day.  Our fishing companion was...

T-shirts & Sunburns

Gotta love the changes in seasons around our great State! Sunny and warm would normally pose a significant problem for any steelhead fisherman, but our very dirty water has allowed both us and the steelhead to be pretty happy. The river has fallen dramatically and...

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

What more can I say—pleasant temperatures in the low 60's, good company, and cooperative steelhead! Pretty nice indeed. Pictured is Ty with a beauty from this morning. Capt. Steven Kuieck...

Double Striped Bucks

Fishing the past two days for the MRO group has been anything but easy. Thankfully all tough steelhead fishing eventually gives way—this afternoon Lady Luck smiled and a couple awesome steelhead were posed for the camera. Pictured above is Greg with a sweet double striped...
