The great times with Captain Don and the Might Mo continue.  What a day to be on the water! Sure, the bite is tough; sure, the water is nearly invisible; but the sun, the light air, the 50 degree temp!  Can't beat it! Stone flies were...

Great day today!  Heck, they're all great but today was special.  Bright sun, low, gin-clear water—but cooperative steelhead.  And especially happy I was because today I hosted my youngest son Ryan for his first steelhead trip of the year.  Ryan works full-time in the metals...

We RiverQuest guides respect and value all the fish we pursue, but, man, fall/winter steelhead are special! The speed, power, and acrobatics of these fish are phenomena more fly fishermen really ought to experience. When one has steelhead clearing the water repeatedly,...

Today, Captain Don Graham and I had the pleasure of hosting the Henneveld group. Although the salmon run is over and the remaining fish are way less than pristine, the guys wanted to fish salmon, so a-weeding we went. Both boats had lots of...

Nature's palette is on the verge of bursting with color!  As the attached photos reflects, Fall's annual display has begun with reds and yellows interspersed with the forest greens.  In short, as the clouds waned and the sun emerged, the day became gorgeous on the...

What a wonderful three days it has been with the McKay group! Everybody connected with Kings with first-timer Charlie edging Muskegon regular Boyd for "Most Fish Landed" honors. Congrats, Charlie! Mike took Steelhead honors with a 10 lb. chromer, and today Ray...

Today, was day one of three with the McKay group from Chicago. Key to success of late is to find a hot hen, and the action will likely be good. Without an active hen and her attendant males, though, it gets tough. ...

Today was a study in contrasts:  Jim and his host Jeff hooked up on Jeff's first cast with the buck sucking in a chartruese and nuke egg.  The fish were active, fresh, and hookups were no problem.  Jim, Jeff's former pastor and good friend, is...
