Hello, my name is Clay and I'm new to this forum and relatively new to fly fishing. I recently moved to Washington from Oklahoma and am looking for some places to wade for trout. I was planning on trying to fish the Naches next week, but I talked to a fly shop in the area and they said that the...
Fished the Naches River this morning from about 7 until 12:30. To be legit for this forum I am posting a scenery pic. I did contemplate getting a picture of the last fish I caught - solid 18", beautifully colored cutthroat, but during the contemplation she made her escape. She took me to my...

Howdy Sea-Run Cutthroat Fly tyers and Fly Fishermen,
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this but I thought I would give it a try.

I've had a few request for a updated SBS for the Squimp so thought I'd do one as I've been stuck at home with a cold.
Nick Clayton's been tying a really nice variant and I have no doubt it works just as well and is easier to tie, this is just how I've been tying them.
Hook- #6 or #8 your...

21" Searun cutthroat fiberglass fish replica featured within a saltwater beach scene. This is a museum quality interpretive wall mount feature that was created, hand-painted as well as air brushed by a local artist. The fish is a trophy size Pacific NW Searun cutthroat and represents a 6 pound...
Does anyone know if sea run cutthroat have started up the Snoqualmie yet. I'm thinking of drifting my pontoon downstream from Fall city to the end of Neal Road. But maybe the water is too low and the heat too high.
Regardless, when the time is right, what patterns should I use.
I will be heading to the OP soon and have no idea how to fish for cutthroat in the rivers. Could anyone give me some tips like what kind of flies are effective and such? Thank you so much and looking forward to learning more!
Being a beautiful day today, I decided to head out to the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie as my intro to Washington freshwater. Drove up to the start of the gravel and was all set to keep going on the right hand track when the missus got nervous, so we decided to head back to a spot that looked...
Dutch, Dog of the West, and I head for Cutthroat Country

Drove to Utah to drop my kid off at the University of Utah to begin his college years and got a chance to fish with a guide to the headwaters of the upper Weber river located near Peoa, UT.
This was my second trip to Utah with the same guide - first trip was nymphing for monster browns where I...
Staying at Wapato Point in Manson, WA for a family vacation. Hit the Chelan River the past two mornings with great success! Yesterday I used a hopper pattern in the 100 degree weather, and got a number of hits reeling in 7 or 8 fish from one little run in the river within a 45-minute period...
The cutthroat season on the Stillaguamish is one of the quality fisheries that I eagerly look forward to ever year. Our "S" river sea-run fishing is one of the few fisheries that is better today than 40 years ago - literally better than "the good old days". Anyway here is my 2017...
Say, I'm wondering if anyone has been on the Naches River yet this year, or fished any of the tribs? I'm looking to possibly head over that way this weekend after having been out of state for the last week. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you don't want info to get blown up or...
Had some errands to run yesterday morning. Picked up some wooly buggers at Dennis Co.
Makes me happy to buy flies at a hardware store but their selection is getting smaller all the time.
This place has been "Opening soon" in downtown Aberdeen since January
Supposed to have a selection of...
Going to be heading out to the Idaho Panhandle here this weekend. Two questions:
1) Any recommendations for areas to start on the North Fork Coeur D'Alene, or other tribs. to hit nearby
2) Campground Recommendations?
I know guys are pretty selective with information they may be...

A cold spring with lots of runoff late into the season meant we would only be blind casting to the occasional cruising fish. That didn't sound so bad, and despite the obvious disadvantage that we might have over the standard conditions of gin-clear water and abundant moving targets, our goal of...

I live at the north end of Lake Sammamish, and have been watching several boats each day go slowly down the middle of the lake fishing for Cutthroat, but they have not had much luck. I am interested in trying this fishing myself, and wanted to ask the forum if anyone fly fishes the lake for...
If you wanted to catch trout this weekend, where would you go?
Ideally, the answer is a quiet little stream full of 16" cutthroats. Or an alpine lake full of same.
Help me out! Cuz Idaho seems too far right now...
A river in Clark county has been offering up cutthroat trout lately, and I wonder if anyone can ID them. Are they west slope?
Since I'm used to 6-10 inch rainbows, these guys really got my heart pumping.
I thought they may have been sea-run as I understand this river has a good sea-run...
I've created some art over the last few months and have begun selling prints. I'm putting together an order that will be going out to my printing source within the next couple of days. A few folks have made requests through the Art section of the forum or through my blog...
This was the last fish of the evening, for a period of 45 minutes we were hooking up on nearly every cast, I've never seen such a concentration of fish. We were surrounded by bait and fish slashing through them. At one point we were able to catch fish just by danging the fly off the side of the...
Usually the nice cutthroat I catch in July are caught on hoppers, but this westslope took a little flashback nymph late in the day. It's 17 inches from the butt to the end of the wraps on this rod. Look at all the white on the pelvic fins. It has a fin stripe like a bull.

Not a huge fish, though very nice from the small trib it was taken on. This is my daughter's 5wt she designed (chose the wood, blank color, thread, trim, etc.). Now her two sisters have me hard at work on their own cusomized masterpieces! :)
