Fly Fishing Report: November 2019

Another year is winding down and our glory months of September and October seemed to race by at breakneck speed, giving way to a cold, but not entirely unpleasant first bit of November.  It’s nice to see the sun still shining and while the rain is probably not far off, we’re doing our best to […]

Fly Fishing Report: October 2019

I’ve always loved those years when summer seamlessly bleeds into fall.  Lots of lingering sunshine and discernable warmth permeates the heart of the day.  The leaves turn gradually, the breeze is light and occasional and those buckets of rain we all know will come sooner or later seem to take their sweet time.  This doesn’t […]

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 […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2019

Beating the heat is the name of the game.  As a fair-skinned dude of Danish descent, I’m not really wired for hot weather.  I get sluggish, nauseated and bake in the sun like an overcooked steak.  I know we’re not accustomed to real heat here in the Northwest but anything over 75 gets me seeking […]

Fly Fishing Report: July 2019

Welcome back summer, our old friend.  My how we’ve missed you!  Along with the sunny skies, heat and days that linger long into the witching hour, our Northwest Washington summers bless us with a exciting array of fisheries, some in full swing, some just on the horizon.  The shop bustles with people coming and going, […]

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 […]
