Fly Fishing Report: June 2019

Good golly it’s nice out these days!  We’re getting spoiled on both the weather and the fishing fronts lately with so many different options out there and pretty fine conditions in which to enjoy them.  Pick your poison:  lakes, rivers, ponds, streams, swamps…it’s just about all open and fishing.  The hardest decision is just figuring […]

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. Whatever the day’s success rate, it was ever so nice to have some local […]

Fly Fishing Report: April 2019

Spring has most certainly sprung and along with it came one of the nicest Marches I can remember.  Day upon day of T-shirt weather, birds chirping, buds blossoming and lots and lots of sun.  Depending on your choice of fisheries, the weather has been both good and bad.  Lakes are certainly warming, chironomid hatches are […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2019

As a short month, February seemingly slipped by me in a wink.  Between limited fishing opportunities, blankets of snow and abysmally cold weather, there just wasn’t much to report.  Most years, February is a month I just can’t wait to send packing.  Admittedly, I was also a bit distracted by an upcoming trip to Christmas […]

Fly Fishing Report: December 2018

Everything has dropped in nicely over the last week thanks to a plummeting mercury and welcome break in the rain. In the midst of our seasonal doom and gloom, these little sun flurries really perk things up. On the extreme end, the fishing can get more difficult when the bottom falls out from beneath our […]

Fly Fishing Report: November 2018

Well, you asked for it! There was nothing subtle about this year’s re-entry into the monsoon season. Our endless summer of warm dry weather and abundant sunshine ended abruptly when Mother Nature jumped in with both feet. Clouds swept in, literally bursting with precipitation and transformed our skeletally low rivers into violent floodwaters filled with […]

Fly Fishing Report: October 2018

October is hands down our favorite month to fish. If we could somehow stretch October to encapsulate at least 285 days a year, that’d be just peachy. It’s far too short as it is and the days, growing shorter and shorter with each breath, seem to breeze by at a break neck pace. What’s not […]

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. Then the skies blew wide open, deluging us with that familiar drip that makes the Northwest what it is. By late August, some of our fisheries were beginning to […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2018

Seems like we get a cooler day just often enough lately to prevent us from melting like a stick of butter in the relentless sun. Even the thick haze that has settled over Puget Sound from BC fire smoke seems to be having an almost marine layer effect an staving off the heat, though it’s […]
