Fishing Report: February 2016

January concluded with a thorough drenching that left most of our rivers high and muddy.

Alaska Coho Extravaganza

I recently returned from an unforgettable fishing experience in the boundless muskegs of Southeast Alaska. While late September weather in the North Country can be fierce and unforgiving, we found temperate skies, unseasonably clear waters and hillsides ablaze in spectacular fall colors. The cold and rain abated until our last day and we spent hour […]

Fishing Report: September 2015

After one of the hottest summers on record, our recent rains serve as a welcome transition into one of our favorite fly fishing seasons of the year. Moisture once again seeps into the ground and air, cooler nights warrant an extra clothing layer or two and our waters absolutely swarm with salmon. September and October […]
