With 2020 behind us lets hope 2021 is better for all of us. I want to thank each and every client who fished hard and worked for every bite, you guys are awesome. After a long fall season with low water, crowds and less fish around then we all would like it’s nice to take a break for a bit. My calendar for next fall is getting pretty full with everyone rebooking the same days, so if you want to book for the fall I highly suggest not waiting to long. I have a few things happening this year so be on the look out for some announcements. Stay safe and see everyone soon.

The 2018/2019 Salmon River season is a wrap and what a great season it was. I want to thank everyone who booked with me this season. I know I converted more clients over to swinging flies this year and looking forward to teaching more clients the swing game was strong this year. If you haven't booked your dates for the fall, don't wait any longer. I have only 2 days left for the Salmon Run and only a couple of days open thru mid December.

The 2016 salmon season is underway and picking up speed each day. I think I have seen more salmon in the river this season then all of last year, well almost. The past few days a few hundred fish have been entering the river with no "Big Run" yet. Cooler temperatures are in the forecast, so hopefully that might trigger the first big run of the year (fingers crossed).

Lee's smile say's it all. What we lacked in salmon this year, the steelhead are making up for it. If you’re on any social media sites for the Salmon River area you will see a lot of the big steelhead being caught this year. I'm book solid thru all of November but a couple of the guides I use have some open dates. If you want to get in on some great steelhead fishing click here to contact me about booking a trip.

This season is a wrap and what a great season it was. The Salmon run started out early in August and was incredible all the way thru October with some really big kings! Steelhead season started off with a bang too and continued right thru the fall. Those early fish in the DSR made for some great takes for my clients swinging flies. Winter fishing was good if you wanted to do battle with Old Man Winter - Me, I must be getting older, I can't take those really cold days anymore. With the long winter came a extended spring season and as I type this there is still plenty of fish to be caught in the river. We saw some insane numbers come to the net and anyway you wanted to catch them. To top it all off I had Great clients/Friends, so what more could a guide ask for!! Looking forward to seeing everyone this coming season! Just think Salmon Season is only 3 1/2 months away!!! Tight Lines, Paul
