Fly Fishing Report: May 2018

We’ve been fortunate experience a nice long string of warm days the last several weeks.  Having lived a lifetime in western Washington, it’s easy to forget how essential a little vitamin D is to the psyche every now and then. It certainly adds a whole other layer of enjoyment to being out on the water.  […]

Fly Fishing Report: April 2018

Spring has sprung, at least some of the time. Then there are the odd days when you get pummeled with hail and wet snow while chasing early season bass on Terrell or have to don fleece gloves on Pass Lake through the entirety of a day as ambient air temperatures straddle the fence between liquids […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2018

Just when you begin to think spring is right around the corner, we get blanketed in wet snow and chilled by the frosty bite of a harsh north wind. Nonetheless, there appear to be signs of life out there. Pretty much all of our local Washington rivers are done for the season, and as is […]

Fly Fishing Report: February 2018

February can be a tough month in these parts, between multiple river closures and some pretty rugged winter weather, fishing opportunities are scarce.

Fly Fishing Report: December 2017

While still a few short days away from true Winter, it’s feeling particularly wintery in the North Sound these days. Frozen windshields, icy roads and an extra hot cup of coffee to begin the day is our December drill. It’s been a long and arduous wait since July, but we’re pleased to see some of […]

Fly Fishing Report: November 2017

October seemed to come and go with the fury of a fall storm, its parting gift a blanket of withered yellow leaves lining the riverbanks. It’s nice to have some rain back in the equation, to witness the weekly ebbs and flows of current and feel the anticipation of fresh salmon pouring upriver as the […]

Fly Fishing Report: October 2017

“The two best times to fish is when it’s rainin’ and when it ain’t.” ~ Patrick F. McManus Truer words have never been spoken as we sidle into the thick of fall. It’s nice to see some moisture back in the equation after a long dry summer. Looking at the extended forecast, we have more […]

Fly Fishing Report: September 2017

Northwestern Washington has felt more and more like living inside of a pressure cooker over the last several weeks. Sticky air, ruminating with fire smoke haze, sweaty asphalt and a strange looking sandal tan permanently emblazoned on my feet. I know it’s far worse elsewhere in the country and the world at large, but us […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2017

Welcome to hot and smokey! With the post apocalyptic haze of BC’s wild fire smoke blanketing much of the area and temperatures approaching triple digits in parts of Puget Sound, we find ourselves seeking the refugee of a well-shaded mountain stream or early dawn tidal rip now more than ever. The fishing is always a […]
