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. We’ve been enjoying the heck […]

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 […]

Top 10 Things To Do When The Rivers Are Blown

1. Come hang out at the shop. It’s not raining in here. We’ll persist in trying to sell you things but we make good conversation too. 2. Tie flies for upcoming outings and next year’s fisheries.

Fishing Report: November 2016

Rain, rain go away, come again some other day. After the wettest October on record, we are still wringing out our clothing, drip drying waders and Gore-tex jackets and laying out drenched flies in heated rooms to stave the onset of rust. Most of our rivers are beyond full, easing toward fishable for a few […]

Fishing Report: October 2016

There we were, tromping through the knee-high mud of the spongy Southeast Alaskan muskeg on our way to the next coho slough just a few miles from the sea. The fish were pulsing in with each high tide, bright and full of vigor, swarming in waves amidst the deep, crimson-bodied warriors that had been ripening […]

Fishing Report: September 2016

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness….” ~Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities […]

Fishing Report: August 2016

As it so often does, our Northwest summer seems to be trickling by all too quickly and we’re already into the dog days of August. It’s refreshing to find a few cooler cloudy days intermittently breaking the cycle of palpable scorchers. Besides, those are arguably the best ones to fish. We’d normally be ramping up […]

Fishing Report: July 2016

Summer is officially here in our lovely corner of the state and we are pleased to see that things are back on track with much of our normal summer fishing fare open and in pretty good shape. As we are obviously not situated on the banks of a premier year-round tail water fishery, the Confluence […]

Fishing Report: June 2016

As the temperature heats up, our desire to wick away the sweat and lethargy of a humid day by retreating to the water grows exponentially. It’s nearly summertime in the Pacific Northwest and just about every fishery that’s going to be available to enjoy is around the corner. Just about. May was a rollercoaster of […]
