5-29-10 Memorial Weekend Fishing Report

















Who says we don't have a salmon fly hatch in the midwest?
Thank the Good Man for those big guys because the drakes have evaporited as of late.......

Come feel and hear the thunder
Last night I had off and went out with best buddy and guide at Teton Valley Lodge (Idaho) W.C. Paetz---wow as we would say it----- quite a barn burner, We were trying out his new 15'StealthCraft White Water Edition and had really enjoyed the full moon.

Great job this week, Jim, Dr. Ryan, (Roger-accidently hooked the biggest fish of his life), The Pollock bros. from Cleveland, Pete and the crew-----
I have these dates off next week: I have Tue, Thurs., Friday
Come join the fun

5-20-10 Fishing Report: Dry Fly Time









Par for this year so far things are heating up fast, with some possible 90 degree days next week, what does that mean get your dry fly rod oiled up because things are happening fast. I expect the next 10 days to be memorable. You name it is hatching with probably tonight the darker drake mr. gray showing himself nicely.

The Big Salmon Fly the Teranarsis is starting to pop----- In my opinion that is what most trout think a m0use going by them at night is.
Good friend Dr. Bell is reovering from quite a sudden issue that has caught him in ICU the last week lets send him some good trout prayers from the big man so he gets back on his feet like the old Jon. (if there is anyone who will rebound quick it will be him)
By the way if there was ever, ever some open days I would want to grab it would be these:
Sunday 5-23, Tuesday 5-25, Thursday 5-27
See ya on the creek

5-6-10 Fishing Report











video

Hey guys May is here and so are the dry fly's. With the low and clear water the fish are really looking up nicely,,,the only problem of late has been the hurricane winds. There is a video of a nice drake hatch we had a couple days ago with a nice fish working on top and a score. I have been still finding steelhead for my clients that booked a year ago because the last 7 years we have had great May steelheading,,,,,,

I have next monday 5-10 and 5-13,14 open

See ya on the creek
