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.
