Yick=Steelhead

Freezing rain steelhead fishing--what can you say, steelhead just like foul weather! Joining Captain Dave and I today was Grant, Jeff, Matt, and Joe of Elliott Donnely TU, Chicago. The icy morning conditions certainly didn't cause any pause for the crew today--actually, I think they...

Captain Don Graham and I continue to snoop on the progress of the 2011 steelhead run with some first-hand investigation; the way we figure, someone has to do it...

Friendship is one of God's richest gifts so to get back on the river with buddy and fellow RiverQuest guide Don Graham and enjoy our friendship made for a wonderful day of fly fishing on Big MO.  With the promise of high 30's temps and...

Happy Campers

A much need break in the Arctic air is slated to arrive Sunday and last most of next week. I believe the temperatures are over-done and not taking into account the 2+ feet of snow we have on the ground. Regardless, the temperatures in the...

Puncitony Phil has promised 6 more weeks of winter until spring--I have a hard time believing that, the way this winter has been going. Even if spring is only a short time away I hope it is slow to appear. The current snow pack around...

Wooly Steelhead

Burrrr, the last few days on the river have been pretty chilly! While yesterday mornings sunshine created a beautiful back drop for our steelhead fishing it was quickly replace by the clouds in the afternoon and a chilly breeze today. The bite was soft both...
