    Walker Bay boats: Suitable for Stillwater fishing?

    I'm surveying the landscape of options for small stillwater boats. I have a Water Strider, which I do like, and I'm certainly familiar with prams. But, my primary focus is on a boat with a V-bottom or modified V-bottom hull design. As part of my survey, I've looked at the 8' and 10' Walker...

    Idaho Stillwater Report

    So it turns out that you Stillwater guys are going about this all wrong.... You need to show those finicky trout some salty patterns! Turns out rubber legged clousers and squimps are highly effective Stillwater flies :D In full disclosure this was a stocked lake in someone's back yard lol...

    Hello everyone, I don't fish a lot of stillwater but I'm looking at spending more time doing it. I have read Stillwater Strategies, but out of curiosity I would like to hear what some other individuals' go to set-up would be for a new stillwater lake. We all have ways of fishing that we have...

    Question to Stillwater FF

    This past spring/summer I really tried to do the stillwater thing (I was recovering from surgery), but I didn't have much luck. This Friday, I go back in for next round and while laid up at Madigan, I thought I'd take in some wisdom. I'm pretty sure I read on here about a new stillwater book...

    Sub Surface Feeding

    Hello all, Last night I took a trip over to Squalicum, and landed several nice bows just trolling around a bugger. I am still new to fly fishing, and have yet to learn many of the hatches and bugs that most trout around here feed on. All over the lake, trout were coming up and feeding directly...

    Diminshed Spring Stillwater fishing!

    Eighty-six today and near 90 degrees tomorrow. What was one of the coolest and wettest springs we have had in a while seems to have come to an abrupt end. Cooler on Wednesday and back up to mid to upper 80's for as far as the 10-day prediction will go. The one lake that has been doing well...

    Stillwater anchoring

    We've had threads about anchors. Now I have a question about anchoring technique. Until last year, I only used a single anchor and just let my canoe swing from side to side, depending how strong the breeze might be. This high falutin' technical chironomid fishing apparently requires the boat...

    Stillwater Anchor Rope Storage

    Hey everyone, After the anchor post this seemed like a good one to bring up. What do you do for rope storage in your boat? I have a 12' Jon and use milk crates to hold my pullers and the rope. They are a little clunky and get in the way a bit. So I'm looking for new ideas! Thanks Jon

    Stillwater Anchors

    I need to figure out how I will anchor the pram. I've used a 5# window weight on my canoe for decades. The canoe has low wind resistance once it aligns with the wind direction, and it doesn't take much to hold it in place. The smallest mushroom anchors I've seen in sporting goods and boating...

    The Death Of A Hole

    In one fatal season, a beautiful fishing spot was ruined. It began one sunny day on Lk. Roesiger. I was casually fishing my way down the East side of the lake. I was stripping a damsel pattern about 15’ down and having pretty consistent luck. As I fished near some docks, I saw that an...

    SBS Stillwater Jig Nymph With Uv Cure Back

    I really like Denny Rickards Stillwater Nymph, but I've struggled to tie it on a jig hook because pulling the marabou over the back of the fly is actually folding it under the fly. I thought some and came up with this idea. Size 10 jig hook with a 7/64 slotted tungsten bead. Olive thread...
