Sure..... Keep thinking that..... It's down 4 degrees C from two weeks ago and fluctuates with the dam releases. The Salmon is sitting at 57 degrees. A buddy of mine just hammered the fish at Heller Bar this last weekend, landing 19 and 25 respectively on Saturday and Sunday. You stay in M-town, and I'll be in L-town rippin' lip.
On flies?

All the gear-caught fish, especially the bleeders should go over real good here. Not that any fly-caught fish ever bleed.

Great pics, I camped at Heller all weekend, I never saw any boats on the river at night.... Maybe these were a little farther down the river. Don't know for sure but judging from the water and lights maybe a little lower in the river, at any rate great pics and
big fish.

Tight Lines,

If you're looking for some straight scoop on the Ronde in addition to fishing it effectively, Mac Huff, a senior guide on the Ronde, will be giving a free seminar at the Orvis store, Saturday at 1PM.

Two wild A runs. The goddamn bass in the Snake kept hitting the flies we were swinging and annoyed the shit out of us. We bonked the big ones and made some killer smallmouth tacos.

I hope those weren't smallie-heads.

That hybrid is a best of both worlds for me and needs to be protected and propegated.
