While running back from Minnesota I checked the river flows and noticed that they all bumped up to perfect levels. Friday I took a coworkers husband out for steelhead and it didn't take long to tie into my first fish. Since Tony is brand new to steelheading I let him r...

During February I ran a contest at The Beef Jerky Outlet Store for one lucky winner to win a half day guide trip for spring steelhead.  Out of the over 100 entries Jarred was the lucky winner.  He asked if he could bring his buddy with and sure why not.  We met up on t...

Saturday i had the pleasure of running the last ice trip of the year in McKinley Marina.  The goal was to get my client on a bunch of steelhead but the brown trout had other ideas.  I ran every close to every rod in the top 6' of water with a mix of shiners and spawn s...

This week has just been shy of outstanding! Despite a few days of high water on one river, low water on another and heavy foot pressure, it didn't stop the steelhead from biting. With my home river getting low and a hair clear, Creek Candy Beads were the trick the past...

Today I met up with a buddy and his two friends on the river for a few hours of hunting chrome. It didn't take long to get a first timer into his first steelhead (3 drifts actually). Soon after he landed his chrome bullet, it was my turn. After getting a few pictures a...

This past weekend was full of high's and low's. Friday while pre fishing in 50mph winds I did more chasing down my ATV than actual fishing which made it a pretty short day. Saturday we decided to pre fish the south end of Delavan lake and it seemed like we couldn't do...

With the recent warm snap, I was able to take a day off of the ice and sneak off to the rivers in search of a female brown for spawn.  It was refreshing to tie into some nice steelhead on my Raven 12'9 Matrix but unfortunately after landing three steelhead and one stoc...

Even though this is a little late seeing all the ice is off the Root river due to recent warm weather and rain but just before it hit I had the pleasure of running the best guide trip of the winter.  I met three guys on the root and showing them how to set a few automa...

This past week started off red hot (view red hot steelhead article).  But it didn't take long for all the rivers to flood out again.  As of yesterday 12-26, both the Root and Milwaukee were blown out and the Oak Creek was extremely low.  I spent the afternoon walking t...

This week was just shy of outstanding with fish being caught in the rivers and harbors.  We got close to 2'' of rain the other night which put the Milwuakee and Root River out of range but another smaller river I fish dropped quick enough and a large amount of steelhe...
