    Hike and Fish the Yakima.

    I have recently move to Washington (Bremerton area) from Montana. I love earning my fish rather than drive, park, fly fish, repeat. I am looking for a trail or area that I would be able to hike a couple of miles and fly fish that is away from the road and away from people. I do not have a boat...

    Wanna fish Sunday?

    This recent weather has kept me cooped up way too much lately and I'm dying to get out on the water. Sunday looks like it will be pretty decent, at least as far as the big W is concerned, so I'm thinking of taking the boat out on the south sound. My buddy had to bail so I've got a seat or two...

    Trip Report The curse has been lifted- First fish on the new rod

    As some of you know I am a very amateur Fisher, and an even more amateur fly Fisher. I have caught plenty of fish on gear setups, but only a handful on a fly, none of the catches being on either of my two newest setups. For whatever reason there seems to be a minimum of a one month probation...

    Alpine Laker in search of fish

    I’m relatively new to Washington and am looking for places to go Alpine lake fishing. I’m not afraid to hike in fact I prefer it if it means getting away from crowds and finding bigger, more stupid fish. Anyone want to share with me their second best spot? I’m especially interested in the Alpine...

    First fish of 2018

    I should have known better when I went out to my frosted over truck that it was going to be a cold morning. When I fired it up the temp was 26 degrees...why am I doing this again? Because a bunch of us are masochists that like catching trout. So off I went to meet up with Scott and Tim at Pass...

    Ideas for getting more Fish & Wildlife Officers

    One consistent complaint I've heard since I started fly fishing 26 years ago is that we don't have enough game wardens in Washington State. I know that there is little chance of getting anything done through the legislature since they haven't provided enough money for WDFW to operate at current...

    Why Are Ocean Fish So Much Stronger?

    I can land a 2 lb trout on a 4 or 5 weight rod without much trouble, and I doubt it'll take more than a few minutes to land it. A 2 lb bonefish, on the other hand, will still pull into my backing on an 8 weight rod. Everything in or from the ocean seems to be considerably stronger than...

    This summer, my son & I went to a bass pond. While waiting for the evening bite, we pulled out our 3 & 4wt rods and fished/caught Crappie, Bluegill, & Perch. It was a blast, actually a lot more enjoyable then when the bass started hitting our 7 & 8wt rods. A couple of weeks ago, we were in...
