Fishing? Pfft…

So, here we are.  Posted some pictures for the Hell of it.  I guess it is some onset of stress and anxiety.  We are just beginning to dry out some, and now we have more wet weather on the way.  So many things are compromised.  Hill sides, creeks and rivers, and many of the roads.  Flood watch is once again on tap.  Sara remains in the valley, doing her best to stay calm and always super dedicated to her job.  Always something.  We just hope, or you atleast hope that the company would take care of some of the people.  Small gestures go a long, long way.

Fishing remains on hold.  Some of the creeks are trying to clean up, but with the up and coming rain, we will again be waiting.  The highway here remains closed.  So, getting to and fro remains a challenge at times.  Looking forward to the middle of next week.  Some visitors coming and going, everyone here safe, and a bunch of cooking for sure.  You know? That gourmet stuff that just magically lands on your plate to enjoy!blog2015#1

So You Wanna Be A Fishing Guide?

This is what your boat looks like at the end of November, and after a long season.  Can`t clean anything, because everything is frozen and temps in the 20`s.

Our Fall season is officially done now.  Waiting on some warmer weather, so we can clean up all of the disasters, and rebuild gear.  A couple of weeks, and we`ll start Steelhead season.  If anyone wants to fish this winter, give us a call, or shoot us an email at  We have limited space for the Fall of 2016, so if you want to fish, might be a good time to think about it.  We are getting back to what it once was, and a year in advance.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Tradition for us, is we go fishing.  Our family is small, and others we don`t communicate with.  Over the years, the holiday plans for us have been heavily modified.  For the most part, we just hang out, eat some, and do as we please.  Occasional visits from some friends.  Nice and calm, with little drama.  A nice day on the river, decorations done by the boss of the place, the cat running wild, and being helpful, a cocktail of two, and warm fires, both inside and out.

Have a safe and enjoyable holiday.  We will be floating the river, and hanging out in the evening.  And, the last day of Fall Chinook season for us.  Thank you to all who came and fished with us through the season.  Hope to see you for Steelhead, and next fall too.mustadfall#7
