    Thank You for all the kind posts from so many members, while I don't post much, I do lurk quite often. The fishing has been pretty darn good of late, but it looks like the Teanaway is about the muddy up everything downstream. March Brown's and Skwala's have been good.

    New log jam down stream from the state boat launch at East Cle Elum. full blockage, portage possible, but be safe and take precautions.

    Lost and Found:

    I found a small wood net and fly box on a gravel bar last week in the canyon around mile marker 19. flybox had a Creekside sticker on it.

    I lost another flyrod! while portaging the log jam below state I was in a hurry and haphazardly set the rod in the back of the raft. When I took out at Bristol I noticed it was gone. My own fault. Scott A3 9 ft 6wt with a Ross evolution 3.

    I lost a Scott G2 9ft 5wt last year above 3 bridges. I had a terminal cancer patient in the boat during the Drake hatch. The guy broke his flies off in a snag, I had another rod ready to go, he set it down in the drift boat, and proceeded to hook a monster that we chased downstream. When we stopped and landed the fish, the G2 was gone. I didn't say a word, what could I do, these things happen.

    If anyone finds either rod, a free trip is your reward.

    Ask me anything, I'll try my best to respond!

    You're a class act. Good for you for letting that pass without even mentioning it to the client.

    OMJ! Of course it's me. I have fond memories of the N/F and you laying in the rocks. And yes, I used to come on this website and be a bit of a horses ass, but it was all for fun and good natured. Although some didn't see it that way. I apoligize, I was young and stupid. Almost 10 years ago..crazy how time flies..



    How's MT? I'll be over in May. Craig MT is one of my favorite places!

    I have so much good water were I live that I don't need to drive long distances to find fish. Checked out the fish per mile today. Was told that it is about 4000 fish per mile on the upper end of the Beaverhead, and about 3200 fish per mile on the lower end. Now that's a lot of fish. But some days you can't buy a fish.

    You were never stupid. You just hung around with Macrowdy to long.

    I hoped you tipped him at least $10 like I did. A guide that produces fish like that earn a good tip.

    Lex,

    I can't seem to find it, was it a Scott G2?

    I like Mike, he's a good dude and a great guide. Always professional on the river. Not surprising he would look for its owner.

    Just looked at the Facebook post again and he didn't say what it was, just that if you think it might be yours to email and describe it. Good luck!

    I sure am :) although he's probably forgotten more about fishing that I will ever know. Too bad its not hereditary.

    No questions?

    What's the best hatches? What are the hatches most anglers fail to recognize? How to approach a complex hatch situation. Why do 10% of anglers catch 90% of the fish? What's the best creek in 1000 miles? How do we solve the wild steelhead situation?
