Out with a bang

Great finish for the McKay group today! While the weather certainly didn't through us any favors, solid steelhead fishing made up for our short comings. Pictured is Bill with a beautiful hen steelhead he caught prior to lunch.  Capt. Steven Kuieck...

Windy but nice

Our run of extraordinary weather is coming to an end—cold, rainy weather is forecasted for the foreseeable future. Toughing out the wind today proved difficult, but both Matt and Sandra plowed through without skipping a beat. Tomorrow we'll test their Gortex and tanasity in some...

TGIF!

Wow, great day to be alive! A little better than 70 degrees this afternoon under blue bird skies–certainly not steelhead weather, but c'mon how could anyone complain about being on the river on a day like today! The high-water express is over and clear water...

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...

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...

Blinders

Blinding sunshine provided some nice residuel warmth to our dark colored gear–niether Sock or Michael seemed to complain with the chilly conditions yesterday. Steelhead fishing was anything but easy the last few days with the aboundant sunshine and cold water. Despite the challenges some very...
