Yes, young man…You…We even caught fish with bananas,fried chicken, loose change, and mint in the boat. And NO cigarettes! Whatever works I guess. Just what this kid needs, more props and fame! Hope you had a good day MS.
Finally got to see one of our good friends this week. It was nice. A hard day work wise for us, but good people in the boat. And, believe it or not, we caught a couple of fish. Hope you guys had a good day. Not bad, for a bunch of injured and crippled dudes!
Seems like winter is finally here. Freezing cold temperatures. Followed by a pretty decent amount of snow load. Then, the typical hit of heavy rain and winds. Been going through the winds and rains over the last few days now. All of the streams along the coast, and inland are completely blown out. Many near flood stage. As this is being written, we are in the beginning of another round of heavy winds and rain. Supposed to blow around 50, with gusts to 100. Fingers crossed, for minimal damage. So, as it stands, another round, she is a comin`. Blowing now. This winter has been a long one for us, and others. Hard times to be guides for sure. Hopefully, the weather calms soon. But, for now, we are out until we see some sunny days.
Another year has come and gone. Christmas was good, but is now over. All of the decor has been boxed and put away. Time now to focus on a “New Year”. We have space available for the up and coming season. In fact, our schedule is light as of right now. The typical thing. Everyone on a path of family and obligations. You would think by now, that we would be used to it.
Here we are. Nearing the shortest day of the year, and the holidays. As we head toward 2014, a new year, we want to say Thankyou to all of our customers, family and friends. We are looking forward to 2014. This past year was eventful for sure. As we enter the new season, and winter Steelhead, we are hoping to see many, if not all of you soon, for a day or two of fishing.
We are going to be taking a week off from the fishing time. We will be here at the place. Cooking, drinking, and hanging out at the fire pit. If anyone wants to swing by, and have a visit, that would be wonderful.
For now, enjoy the end of this year, and make the entire year full of happiness, and kindness. The way it should be…Back to the river soon. For now, Happy Holidays, and Winter Solstice!
OK…Here we go! Our neat little cold snap is currently leaving us. Finally! It was a tough one out here for us. Those of you that checked up on us, Thankyou…The only thing we need is a couple bottles of something tasty. Tell us when you are coming, and we`ll have the bonfire going. Over the last several days, we sent out an email blast to past customers, and friends. Some of you we have recently seen, some of you, we have not seen for a while. And, for anyone new, that might like to come fish with us, we have space. All of you who visit the site, please get in touch. It is time now, to get back to a little normal, spend some time on the river, and relax some. We`ll take the rain and 40`s, over single digits any day. This season should be good. Shoot us an email, hit us up on social media, or give us a phone call. We`ll get everything set up, and get out of our cabin fever funk…
Looks like we are on the down hill slide of this super freeze. One more day of it, and a night. Been brutal on us. The typical cranky, irritated, pissed off moods. Along with the endless work around the place, and being married to the wood stove. The super cold nights seized the gauges and the pressure valve on the pump house. On the third night, the gauge broke. So, another neat bill and fix that is needed. Kept it as warm as we could, and tried not to kill one another. And, keep the kitty from going crazy. He ventured a little today, but still does not like the snow much. He is a tender foot!
So, as we get out of all of this, we are going to head to the river. There are some fish here, and should be a bunch as the river rises and warms. Still super worn out and tired from this stuff, but we are ready to break out of “cabin fever”…Enjoy the rest of the week, and we will give you the latest as things calm.
Winter is here! Cold and crisp for sure. Currently, the river is “Blowed” out. Yes, it is spelled wrong. Just saying hello to a good friend. He`ll get it. We just came off of some serious rain, and now headed into a cold snap. There are some fresh Steelhead around, and likely a lot more than what we saw last week.
We are all ready to go for the winter and spring season. Looking forward to it. As the holidays approach, we are typically into a holding pattern, and waiting on the weather. As we head further into the season, fishing this year should be really good. The normal guys that are not on the calendar yet, get in touch. You know who you are. As for new people, give us a shout anytime, and we`ll find a good spot for you. For now, when the rivers come into shape, we`ll let you know whats shakin` around here…
Fished on this holiday day. Had some nice weather. A little cool, but clear. Caught a monster cutthroat, hooked 3 Steelhead, and kept this little guy for Pumpkins dinner…There you go…
