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.

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: 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 […]
