Fishin with the James brothers

Went fishing with the James brothers today lookin for a big one. Saw a couple but didn't stick em. We did however catch a bunch of these

The James Bros.
And there are fish on redds. Please do not walk on clean gravel or attempt to snag spawners... it is not cool. On that note they are eating the bead really really good right now.

on the water report

Fished with Jeff and Frank from California yesterday,  they've been out here hunting and decided to take a day fly fishing. It proved to be a good idea,  we caught a lot of rainbows and a couple nice browns nymphing. The weather was pleasant minus the wind. Had some good days fishing in the snow last week and we're seeing more big baetis, with more big browns eating them under the olive trees. Flows are still fluctuating between 800 and 850 cfs. The nymphing really seems to be better in the morning until they turn onto the baetis around noon one o clock. Streamer fishing is day to day.

Alyssa did a presentation on tying steamers last night for the Wyoming Womens Fly Fishing Club at UW in Laramie. Sounds like it was a sold out crowd and the ladies had a good time.  We look forward to fishing with them next spring.

Used Drift Boat For Sale - 2007 Clackacraft SOLD!

SOLD the ol' high side Clacka. We just don't need it now that we've decided not to head back to Washington for the winter. It's a 2007 Steelhead Deluxe, great starter boat or for big rivers and heavy water. I bought it from the Clacka dealer in Portland in 2013 where it was refurbished. I've put it to use, almost 200 guide days plus on the water and it has some scratches, but no leaks. Great boat. Comes with trailer (new tires and bearings installed April 2015), 30lb. anchor, and 9 1/2 foot Sawyer oars. SOLD!
