Had a small window and a break in the weather. We are, once again, in the middle of another round of wind and rain. Rivers are all shot again. So, now we wait. The good part was, when we did fish, we did well. Some of the guys now know, when I call, they need to come, and for a good reason! Back to chores and gear for the moment, until the next break in weather…Stay Fishy!
We did get to fish a little bit. A whole whopping three days. Rain is the norm it seems. Everything from here, to North, to South is big and muddy, all up and down the coast. When we could fish, we did well. Plenty of fish around to play with. Even had a brief encounter with a big one.
Since we are all doing yard work and chores, it is a good time to call us and get your trips booked. Looks like a window coming the middle of next week. We figure the bulk of the season will start around mid February, looking at the weather trends. The benefit of the wet, is that we should have good flows, and not as much of the total vodka clear, like the last couple of years. So, if you would like to go fishing, we would love to take you. A bunch of our normal guys are ill, having procedures, or traveling. A couple of others have passed on.
On another note, Sara and I will be at the Portland Sportsmans Show on Friday and Saturday in February. We will be working in the St Croix booth, and also wandering seeing some old friends and some of our affiliates. If we cross paths, we can BS some, and talk about the up and coming seasons. Also, the possibility of coming to Alaska with us.
Taking a much needed break from storm detail. Just, oh, worn out. Still moist and more rainy stuff is here now. Super tired, but don`t want to nap. Vinny is crapped out on the couch, the stove is going, supper is cooked, and will be tying leaders shortly. Just wanted to sit some, so decided to go through some older pictures of Steelhead past. Get in touch with us if you want to go fishing this winter and spring.
