Yesterday i spent the morning on the river swinging streamers for kings, looking for the aggression strike.  Between Nolan, Kelsey and I we landed to many to count, lost to many to count and by the end of the morning my 3'' rabbit fur tail was down to 1''.  This time o...

Yesterday I met my buddy (photographer) and his girlfriend on the river in search of Browns and chinooks. As I was standing on the bank finishing my coffee Kelsey yelled "I have one!" As I looked up I saw her fly rod bowed over and a very nice brown thrashing away. Aft...

The last few weeks have been just shy of outstanding for steelhead.  Despite high waters and having to buy my time in between river blow outs, the few days I have been on rivers have been action packed.  Last week was a week of firsts with a client from MN who got his...

The water levels on one of my smaller rivers became perfect for steelheading.  During the mornings we loaded up on steel with creek candy beads, spawn and jigs under floats in the deeper holes but during mid day the fish became more active and were chomping at the bit...

To follow up an outstanding day on the river, I ran a half day trip with the fly rod. I expected fishing to be a little tougher with the lower water levels and I was spot on. In the first spot we fished I hooked up with a small milking brown on the Centerpin and let...

While I was at work last night watching the rain pelt the windows I knew it was only a matter of time before the rivers I fish bumped up in flow causing a new batch of fish to come in.  I spent the entire night watching the stream flow gauge like a hawk until 0700 when...
