Terry with one of many on a recent trip Steelhead season is in full swing now and with the recent snow on the ground and flows increasing its setting up for a great rest of the season. Swinging flies has been pretty consistent now with number of fish in the river. I'd say 90% of my clients are changing over to swinging flies and taking on the challenge of trying to catch a steelhead the hardest way to catch one. Nothing like swinging down a run with a fresh blanket of snow on the ground.

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.

NYS has put a temporary ban on guiding in New York under the "PAUSE Executive Order" until further notice. While we have already stopped doing any trips before this went into effect for everyone's safety, we're still are booking trips for the fall. This it a tough time for all of us and I've been reaching to clients about their dates booked and deposits and I want to thank all my clients who have rescheduled or have been generous to allow me to keep the deposit. If you have any questions, or want to book a date for later this year please email, text or call me at (518) 495-2965. Thank you for your cooperation during this time.

As we come to a close of 2019 looking back it has been a great year. Maybe not in fish numbers, but in fishing experiences. More and more clients are enjoying swinging flies with two hander's each season and are working hard on their casting and skills to fish thru a run move effectively. And they are just enjoying being out there unplugged from work and devices. Enjoying time on the water with friends, just taking it all in, as we all know, life is too short not to live everyday to its fullest. Don't forget our Winter Special with the Douglaston Salmon Run now til March 31. To book a trip or to discuss a trip click here. Interested in casting a Echo Full Spey 7130 or Compact Spey 7012, contact me and we can meet up on the Salmon River.

The Fall salmon run is well underway now. It started off good but the weather was too summer like this past week and slowed things down. Hopefully more Fall like weather will return soon because steelhead will hopefully start showing up once the water cools down. Who's ready to catch some steelhead??
