Trout

Change of Pace

Steelhead fishing is waning and it was a nice change of pace to strip streamers for river browns today. Water conditions are ideal while the river temperature remains a little cold yet. Slow strips near cover produced some great opportunities. Picturede is Kris with a...

Unseasonably Cold!

Unseasonably cold weather has been the theme since the end of last week. Fortunately for me I was able to stay south since last post to enjoy watching my sons soccer team play some games in Missouri. Back on the river today with a ridiculous...

Wow!

I’m not sure how much luck Kris has left in her bag? A beautiful September Steelhead last week on her two-hander and today, one of the best brown trout I’ve ever had a client catch (ever) on the swing no less! Wow!   Obviously Kris is no...

Good times

Roger and Al have been with me for the last several days. We’ve known and fished together for well over 25 years. The river treated both Roger and Al very kindly despite the low numbers of steelhead. Neither Roger or Al were big on photographs...

Fall Brown Trout

The McKay group is with us just as they have been for past nearly 20yrs this week in October. Always a group we look forward seeing each season! New to the group is 15yr old Kaiden from Indiana. While the salmon and steelhead proved tough...
