    Middle Fork Snoqalmie report (08/26)

    MA 206 Report

    I hit the beaches both days this weekend rather then head to the 509 and increase the population over there which is making for shitty lake fishing. Super crowded conditions, with a total of three other anglers seen in about 12 hours of fishing. Totally unacceptable. ;) I knew two of the guys...

    MA 11 report /chum fry sighting

    I got up early this morning to try and make the high slack tide before sun up only to find a locked gate. By the time I made it down the hill all the action was basically over but I did see some nice fish, maybe BM, and some seals chasing them. Struck out at another beach nearby. I did see some...

    A crappy Eastern Washington Report

    I just couldn't find the motivation today to hit the water before noon. I mean the fishing in Eastern Washington is so bad it's hardly worth it as is...(I kid,I kid) I decided to go to a, "popular" gear lake. I just knew it would be crowded with hundreds of anglers having just opened a few...

    Lenice and Life Report

    “So, what are you going to do with all your free time when your retired?” was a (dumb) question that I was getting asked a lot my last year of working, here is the answer. Since I know mother nature has thrown curveballs at me many years in the past, I pulled my trailer over and stored it at...

    iBobber report/Hummingbird

    I played with the iBobber last week and it pretty much works as advertised. The little fish finder/depth recorder was given to me as a gift, so the price was right. I did have a few issues with it.. I found it hard to fish with one hand and operate the phone with the other, and it was also...

    Bonefishless.... a quick HI report

    My new favorite sport might actually be not catching bonefish. This is my second time on these windy flats and I am fishless once again but loving every minute of it for sure. I feel like I have it pretty dialed and I am seeing fish and making good casts but they are ghosts. Targeting reef fish...

    Report

    I decided to play hooky today after my fishing buddies noted it was to be a nice day and they were heading off to Lone. I tagged along and it was a good if unspectacular fishing day. I dragged around an olive bugger on a type 4 but got bored and went onto mids. Last time out a bloodworm tight...

    Report

    Went out today for an afternoon get out. ended up going 2/4 on resident coho, felt pretty good about it since it was my first time doing this fishery.

    Report

    My good buddy wound up with a rare weekday off work, so he called me up last night and wanted to fish. I looked at the tides and they were pretty lousy for today, and it was supposed to be a bit windy, but what the hell... Gotta fish when you can, and the only true bad tides are the ones you...

    Eastside Food, Fish, and Fly: Lake Report

    Popular east side lake, excellent fishing Sunday. Beautiful weather too. Water was clear, slightly green, pretty cold but I forgot to take a temperature. Fish sampled had mostly daphnia, some chironomids, worms, and occasional damsel nymph. I caught fish under the indicator on a chromie...

    Hazarding a fishing report

    Gonna give this a try since I sponge so much information off you guys...I figure I owe some kind of entertainment. Used a great guide yesterday and managed to hook into a small one which broke off rather quickly. My guide mentioned that I might want to 'tone down' the trout hook set a little...

    South sound report

    Finally back on the water after almost 2 months. Wasn’t excited about the forecast for sun but today was my one day to fish, and I managed to get into a few nice cutthroat, all nice and healthy plus chunky, if they were post spawn they didn’t look like it, no sea lice of any kind. First fish...

    Been a while.... Time for a report

    2018 has been extremely busy for me so far, and especially so the last couple of weeks. I have had so much stuff going on I just haven't got to fish a whole lot. I mean, I don't have it as bad as those Montana boys, as this was day number 19 on the water in 2018 by my count, but that's pretty...

    Rare winter Western Washington stream resident trout fishing report

    What a surprise. Mostly, we wanted to go for a walk in the woods by the river. We wondered, Should we string up a rod? Might as well, we decided. Not five minutes into casting into a deep, slow glide, my indicator dipped and I set into what felt like a decent fish. I ended up landing what is by...

    Lone Lake Report 1/18/2018

    After reading Adrian's thread on Lone Lake recently, I thought I'd give it a try on Thursday after not having fished it since before the summer kill of 2016. When I arrived it was nice and sunny as shown in the photo above, but it soon became really windy (white caps and windrows), heavily...

    South Sound Report

    The last year or so I haven't fished nearly as much as I would have liked. Unfortunately it seems that the longer you go without making time for yourself the easier it is to make excuses to keep grinding away at work or to catch up on some sleep. But the few times that I have gotten out I've...

    A Short Fishing Report

    Had the day off yesterday and figured I’d take advantage of the great fall weather here in the greater Seattle area. Limited amount of time, so I hit some water close to home. I didn’t figure dry flies were going to produce much, but that’s what I enjoy so I figured I’d start that way and...

    Sand Dune sea runs.... a report

    My buddy told me about this nice little estuary on the Oregon Coast that is surrounded by sand dunes.

    Here you go, OMJ, an actual fishin' report. Now quit yer whining! I am in the process of moving so I shouldn't even be fishing at all right now. But I couldn't pass up an invite by a friend to fish my favorite desert spring creek. No, not the crowded one near Ephrata. This is a gorgeous tiny...
