Fishing Report: March 2017

Winter continues to embrace the Northwest in a relentless bear hug.

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.

November Fly of the Month: Huevos Con Leche

Last month we shared an egg sucking leech pattern as a highly effective all around fall salmon, steelhead and big char fly. For November we’ll cut straight to the chase and tie a stand-alone egg pattern. Following the seasonal orgy of salmon spawning, most of our rivers boast a sizeable biomass in the form of […]
