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 […]

Fishing Report: May 2016

Let there be light! We’ve had our fair share of sunshine and hot days, trees are leafing out and the lawn seems to be in the midst of an insurmountable growth spurt. Lots of new lakes are open, the water and the fishing have warmed considerably. While we all have our favorite places or piscine […]

Fishing Report: April 2016

This past month certainly lived up to its reputation, coming in like a lion, gnashing perilous teeth, dumping blankets of rain and hurricane winds, effectively shredding many an opportunity to enjoy the water. We’re quite pleased that March left us on a far more docile note, with characteristic lamb-like days pushing 70 degrees and tranquil […]

Daffodils are popping up all around and adding a welcome touch of color to the brown and gray landscape. Spring can’t be too far around the corner. If you think you’ve survived another dreary Northwest winter, pat your self on the back and hope the worst is behind us. If you enjoy the snow sports, […]

Fishing Report: February 2016

January concluded with a thorough drenching that left most of our rivers high and muddy. Somewhere in there we found a few fishable days and with them plenty of bull trout and the odd obliging steelhead. Many of our North Sound steelhead rivers are now closed for the season, save for a few short open […]

Fishing Report: January 2016

As we slip into the new year, the weather remains frightfully cold and pleasantly sunny and the rivers have remained in shape for longer than their fair share of time. There’s another several days of cold clear skies on the horizon and then we settle back into that winter rain we’ve come to at least […]

Fishing Report: December 2015

After the big deluge, the weather has given way to cold bright skies and abominably frosty gravel bars lined with hoar frost castles. The rivers have been in shape until recently and we’ve been seeing hungry char, late chum and coho with a few early winter steelhead navigating the clear, pebbled flows. With warm, wet […]

Fishing Report: November 2015

October came and went with all the quickness and intensity of our latest downpour. The earth is wet and spongy, the rivers full once again for the time being, leafless maples and alder line the banks as seasonal sentinels. The fish continue to do their thing in spite of it all while we anglers do […]

Fishing Report: October 2015

“Angling is extremely time consuming. That’s sort of the whole point.” -Thomas McGuane One of my favorite fishing quotes rings especially true during the fall when the beloved season of many seems to come and go all too quickly. There doesn’t seem to be enough time to fish everywhere we’d like and it’s simply too […]
