Salmon Season

Salmon season is just around the corner. Hopefully we should see a good run based on statistics and hope mother nature is in our favor this fall. A good source was fishing in the Douglaston Salmon Run Sunday and saw a few salmon moving thru. Could we have another year with a early run?

If you haven’t booked your dates now is the time, I have only a few days open but I have a couple of other guides working for me that may have it open.

Fishing Update

Fishing remains slow and everyone has theories to where the fish are or even if we are going to get a decent return of fish this year.  Is it because of the flood in 2010? Low water and lack of eggs at the hatchery in 2011?? The cold winter and colder then normal lake temperatures this year??  Or 60% of last years fish at the hatchery last year were two year olds (this years fish) Or all the above. Only time will tell. As I type this there has been some fish showing up at the mouth staged in front.
On the plus side there are some Steelhead in the river, if you try to target them you could be rewarded like Blake here in the picture above.

First Trip of the season

Started my river trips for the season on Sunday and it was pretty slow. We saw more fish going back to the lake at daylight then we saw swimming upstream the rest of the day, which is pretty common this time of the year.
If your looking to book Steelhead dates in November I have very few left, don’t wait.

Swinging – It Doesn’t Get Any Better

Francois and Sylvain hit it right this time for their annual spring trip to the Salmon River after we had to reschedule due to the river running at 5000cfs. Swinging flies high in the water column was just what they wanted to do and they did. I will let the smiles tell the rest of the story. 
   Looking forward to seeing you guys next season!
