Now it is pretty evident we need to have some type of winter or we could be in some real trouble as for our water situation.  The winter steelhead the past couple of weeks has been slow, we are finding fish here and there. Making something difficult, even harder. with the days we have been having I have started chasing a few redsides around on the Deschutes. Finding those to be doing fairly well.

The weather forecast has all been lies, so I will believe the rain when it touches my gore-tex. Keep the faith and remember… tough to get them from the couch!!! If you feel in the mood to get a jump of the trout season shoot me an email. Tight lines!!

Good casts cover the water better!!

Well the fish are in  the rivers on the PNW. The amount of water in which the steelhead have to swim in is shrinking by the day. So fishing has been a bit tough. Keep those flies in the river and hunt each one of them down!!! Red and orange have been working for me, but I am about to switch to my secret low water color….. Purple.
