Fishing Report: December 2016

After a soggy start to November, we finished out the month with some cooler, drier climes, bringing most of our rivers into fishable shape. Like eagles on a fresh chum carcass, we flocked to the water to see what was out there and have been finding lots of chum salmon, bull trout and even some […]

Fishing Report: November 2016

Rain, rain go away, come again some other day. After the wettest October on record, we are still wringing out our clothing, drip drying waders and Gore-tex jackets and laying out drenched flies in heated rooms to stave the onset of rust. Most of our rivers are beyond full, easing toward fishable for a few […]

Fishing Report: October 2016

There we were, tromping through the knee-high mud of the spongy Southeast Alaskan muskeg on our way to the next coho slough just a few miles from the sea. The fish were pulsing in with each high tide, bright and full of vigor, swarming in waves amidst the deep, crimson-bodied warriors that had been ripening […]

Fishing Report: August 2016

As it so often does, our Northwest summer seems to be trickling by all too quickly and we’re already into the dog days of August. It’s refreshing to find a few cooler cloudy days intermittently breaking the cycle of palpable scorchers. Besides, those are arguably the best ones to fish. We’d normally be ramping up […]

Fishing Report: April 2016

This past month certainly lived up to its reputation, coming in like a lion, gnashing perilous teeth, dumping blankets of rain and hurricane winds, effectively shredding many an opportunity to enjoy the water. We’re quite pleased that March left us on a far more docile note, with characteristic lamb-like days pushing 70 degrees and tranquil […]

Fishing Report: March 2016

Daffodils are popping up all around and adding a welcome touch of color to the brown and gray landscape. Spring can’t be too far around the corner. If you think you’ve survived another dreary Northwest winter, pat your self on the back and hope the worst is behind us. If you enjoy the snow sports, […]

Fishing Report: February 2016

January concluded with a thorough drenching that left most of our rivers high and muddy. Somewhere in there we found a few fishable days and with them plenty of bull trout and the odd obliging steelhead. Many of our North Sound steelhead rivers are now closed for the season, save for a few short open […]

Fishing Report: January 2016

As we slip into the new year, the weather remains frightfully cold and pleasantly sunny and the rivers have remained in shape for longer than their fair share of time. There’s another several days of cold clear skies on the horizon and then we settle back into that winter rain we’ve come to at least […]
