Fly Fishing Report: May 2020

I feel like we’re all now pretty well entrenched in the craziest of times.  The world is a far different place from the one we left in February.  Our hearts go out to all who have been touched by this terrible virus and all who are struggling to deal with the many hardships that continue […]

Whidbey Island Beach Coho

It’s time for another installment of local fisheries 101 in the absence of any relevant fishing reports to pass on. I have a lot of seasonal fishing focus ideas floating around in my head at any given point and when it comes time to pluck one from the ether, it can feel a little random. […]

Fly Fishing Report: May 2019

Seasons come and seasons go.  It’s a bittersweet goodbye to our much anticipated spring steelhead catch and release fishery on the Skagit and Sauk.  Catching was hit and miss, picking up a little more through April as the month wound down.

Fly Fishing Report: September 2018

I honestly began to feel like our sunny summer streak would never end, as rivers shrunk and continued to shrink into shriveled boney versions of themselves.

Fly Fishing Report: May 2018

We’ve been fortunate experience a nice long string of warm days the last several weeks.  Having lived a lifetime in western Washington, it’s easy to forget how essential a little vitamin D is to the psyche every now and then. It certainly adds a whole other layer of enjoyment to being out on the water.  […]

Fly Fishing Report: April 2018

Spring has sprung, at least some of the time. Then there are the odd days when you get pummeled with hail and wet snow while chasing early season bass on Terrell or have to don fleece gloves on Pass Lake through the entirety of a day as ambient air temperatures straddle the fence between liquids […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2018

Just when you begin to think spring is right around the corner, we get blanketed in wet snow and chilled by the frosty bite of a harsh north wind. Nonetheless, there appear to be signs of life out there. Pretty much all of our local Washington rivers are done for the season, and as is […]
