Fly Fishing Report: December 2020

Ahhh…2020, the year we never thought would end, is nearing its final stretch.  As much as we’re all fairly fed up with pandemics, politics and the multitude of disruptions to our normal daily flow, it hasn’t been all bad.  As a relative creature of habit, I’ve appreciated being forced to change up my normal fishing […]

Fly Fishing Report: November 2020

Here we are on election day, something we’ve either been waiting on all year or silently dreading.  I imagine for many folks it’s a mixture of both.  2020 has been a challenging time for too many people and I think most of the world will be content to see it behind us.  There’s a vast […]

Fly Fishing Report: October 2020

Between the blinding smoke haze and impenetrable fog over the last several weeks it’s been a challenge to see what’s going on out there and in extreme cases, even safely get outside.  Fortunately, there’ve been enough windows open here and there to enjoy a number of fine days on the water as summer passes the […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2020

It was worth the wait.  After a rainy kick off, cool temps and lots of water cascading down our rivers through much of July, we’ve finally gotten a hearty dose of summer here in the Pacific Northwest and it looks like it may be here to stay for a while.  While the pandemic continues to […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2020

Things are finally beginning to unfold into a more palatable landscape of blue sky, budding trees, and breathless days that make spending a few hours on the water in pursuit of fish downright pleasant once again. I even heard the faint song of a varied thrush echoing through thin walls of an outhouse in Forks […]

Fly Fishing Report: February 2020

I think a lot of us are officially done with winter, though it may not quite be done with us. I usually look forward to the dark dreary days of January and February, knowing I’ll spend as many of them as I can knee deep in the cold flows of the Nooksack or Skagit, swinging […]

Fly Fishing Report: January 2020

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for a strong finish to 2019. We hope you all enjoyed a warm, safe and fun-filled Holiday season. While it’d be a bald-faced lie to say fishing in the North Sound region is anytime approaching red hot right now, there’s still some opportunity and with a little patience, determination […]

Fly Fishing Report: December 2019

It’s hard to believe another year has nearly passed us by and we’re winding down into the final few weeks.  There’s still fishing to be had amidst the hustle and bustle of holiday activities.  Fishing isn’t always red hot this time of year, but some pretty decent opportunities remain despite the sometimes crummy weather.  Our […]

December Fly of the Month: The Flesh Tuxedo

I’ve known about flesh flies for a long time.  They always seemed like an Alaska phenomenon to me and indeed I’ve witnessed trout and char pick a freshly filleted coho carcass clean off the bottom of a clear southeast Alaskan creek.  It’s carvnivory in its rawest form.  I don’t know that North Sound bull trout […]

Fly Fishing Report: September 2019

September is upon us and with it some cooler weather and wetter skies that for us mark a shift in focus back to our cold water salmonids.  Salmon are making their way through the Puget Sound and into our rivers, bull trout are continuing their upstream journeys to stage below their spawning tributaries, bugs are […]
