Sorry about no reports for so long. The fishing up here in the fly water has been slow to fair depending on the day. It will pick up nicely with the weather we are getting now and should hold good through the end of the season. Are drift boat man Clay has been doing well in the lower river so there are plenty of fish on there way up. The run is slow this year because we have had no real rain for a very long time and they need rain to move up.
The water is still cold and the fishing in the upper river has been a bit slow but if you keep after it there are some nice fish to be had. You just have to put your time in and be persistant, but that is fly fishing for steelhead is all about.
The fishing for the start of the winter season has been fair to good. The water is a little to low clear and cold but there is some nice fish around and it should get better with some weather. Fished with Mark today the photos below are two of five we landed.
The recent weather and water has brought in some nice fall run fish, the photos below are of a beautiful 40" buck and a nice hen. The river will be blown for the next week or so but we should see some winter fish up in the fly water after xmas.
The summer season is almost over. We had some good days this summer but the fishing was a bit slow for the most part. We will be doing trips for summer fish up to the 15th of November.
I am now looking forward to the winter season, we will start winter steelhead trips January 1. Most years the fishing in January is good, we just need some help from mother nature. Last year January was slow because we had very low and cold water conditions so pray for some weather and I hope to see you this winter.
