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 […]

Fishing Report: March 2017

Winter continues to embrace the Northwest in a relentless bear hug. Sheets of sleet, freezing rain, snow, ice and sometimes heavy wind remain an almost weekly occurrence, and while the foothills and forests sure do look pretty all blanketed in fresh snow, we’re kind of ready for things to thaw out and warm up. We’ve […]

Fishing Report: February 2017

Brrrr! That about sums it up for our little corner of the country. In spite of our abysmally cold winter, we’ve enjoyed some fantastic time on the water, shook fins with some amazing fish and been endowed with atypical blasts of sunshine instead of the usual dark and dreary winter.

Fishing Report: January 2017

Welcome to our winter wonderland! Our steady, dripping slog of a rain-infused autumn has finally given way to an arctic landscape. After a couple years of fairly mild January’s, we’re once again reminded of what it’s like to be truly cold. Ice is forming around the boats in Squalicum Harbor, icicles line the eaves and […]

Fishing Report: December 2016

After a soggy start to November, we finished out the month with some cooler, drier climes, bringing most of our rivers into fishable shape. Like eagles on a fresh chum carcass, we flocked to the water to see what was out there and have been finding lots of chum salmon, bull trout and even some […]
