Steelhead Season is on!

Steelhead have finally found their way into California's coastal rivers with the recent torrential rains. The rivers blew out of course but are finally dropping into shape. There is a heart pounding wild California Steelhead out there with your name on it.

The Steelhead season is winding down...just not quite over yet.

The last storm got the coastal rivers back up. They started to drop into shape by early Monday of last week. Fishing started off pretty slow. We went two days and got two hook- ups. I think it was a combination of heavy pressure and basically there were just not a lot of fish around.. By mid week the options for good looking water increased. The fishing improved.. My last day we hooked 9. Mainly Kelts but we managed to find some Chrome......

Excellent fly fishing for Steelhead continues on California's North Coast

The past week on California's north coast was another good one for Steelhead. The water was lower and clearer than I would have liked it. Just like any steelhead river.. The lower it gets the more difficult the fishing tends to be. Word must have been out because there were lots of boats as well. Despite the traffic we were averaging 8 hook-ups a day.

There was an even mix of fresh fish and kelts. The fish were a little smaller than last week .. Good thing is that meant more in the net :) Rain showed up on Tuesday and continued through Thursday afternoon. Most rivers blew out and are already dropping back in.

Wild Steel!!!Wild Steel!!!

This could be the last hurrah ....!!!!!

Let's fish,

New Flymage E-magazine

Here is a cool E-magazine which covers fly fishing and fly fishing photography. All of us like catching fish and there is nothing like having proof of the fish we catch. Wouldn't you like info from fly fishing photographers on how to take them better so once that fish of a lifetime comes along you will be ready? Take a look!

Trinity River is low but fishing is steady

I have been up on the Trinity River the last three weeks with fly fishing clients targeting Steelhead. I wanted to give everyone an update on conditions.

October 1, 2 Lower Sacramento trip

We spent two days on the Lower Sac with clients Jeff D. and Jim W. from Granite Bay. We fished the top end on day one. We hooked quite a few fish the largest of which hammered the egg patterns.
Success is sweet!Success is sweet!
