July 17, 2014  Mountain Creeks, WA

Not exactly an every day fish from the Mountain Creeks…unless you know where to look.  This one was every bit of 18 inches, and was 1 of 3 landed that was above 16.  Everything else was above 11.  Get out and explore some new creeks—you just might be surprised what smacks your fly.

July 7, 2014  Puget Sound, WAAlright then, July has arrived quite rapidly, coho will be showing up here anytime soon but in their midst these cutthroat will be lurking around as well.  Having done so for several years now, there are not many reasons to fish subsurface for the SRC’s, they simply will attack anything on the surface at any time.  Apologize for our infrequent posts, opening a new store from the bottom up is not an easy task.  Aside from the Sound, nearly everything else is fishing quite well now so have a great summer season and come by the new store and say hello.photo Dave McCoy

June 19, 2014  Fall River, IdahoSometimes you just get lucky…timing on many rivers would have put us off the hatch but on the Fall, the salmon flies were about a week behind.  Watching as these giants of the insect world crawled up your leg, across your sunglasses and over your hat only to fall back to the water and be consumed by a hungry trout is as much fun as fishing them.  A small NatGeo experience and you get a front seat!photo Dave McCoy

June 8, 2014  Mountain Creeks, WAWe are officially into creek season around here, Abbie Schuster releases a gorgeous little native Westslope cutt from a small creek just outside Seattle.  Even with water levels pretty high these aggressive trout are looking up it is just a matter of you getting your fly to the right location and presenting it well, and be able wade safely!  Fly is your choice but in this higher, faster and colder water, we like slightly larger flies such as stimulators which entice fish to make the journey to the surface.  Have a great season everyone, let us know if you ever have any questions, we are here to answer them!photo Dave McCoy

Abbie Schuster begins to celebrate as the take is missed…not to worry though, as we still managed to find a fish or two today.  Wind picked up a bit as the afternoon moved on but otherwise a terrific day on the Sound with fish at each beach we stopped at.  Still taking surface flies too.

May 28, 2014 Deschutes River, OR
Several of us were lucky enough to spend the past few days floating the incredible Deschutes River. The long anticipated Salmonfly hatch has come and gone on much of the river, but fishing for native redside rainbows has remained awesome nonetheless. Luckily, these trout seem to have good memories, with many of our better fish still coming up for big salmonfly imitations. Those that were a bit more picky were keyed in on the numerous hatches we saw throughout the course of each day…caddis, PMDs, PEDs golden stones, yellow sallies, green drakes…just to name a few. Definitely worth the drive right now!
