I went through the run with a little dark fly, because that is the rule when the sun is off the water and the water is clear. Then I put on my lucky fly and, as usual, a fish could not resist it. I call this fly the "pink monstrosity". It's been a long time since I caught a steelhead on the Klickit
Just above Slide, right in the middle of the boulders there's a root ball with a log or two attached. There's no real easy way around it. Go to the left, tuck in your oars, do your best in the boils. You may hit the rocks with your boat and do cookies, but that's still better than getting...

I’m looking to line up my 9’ 9wt for an October trip to the Klickitat. Right now I’m running clear intermediate from Mexico trips. If I’m starting from scratch and on a budget, what would be a good setup that can be used for nymphing and swinging for kings? I’m pretty new to T#’s and tip set...
I am heading to the Klickitat on Friday morning to take a guide with The Evening Hatch. I will be returning the same day. My buddy dropped out, so if anybody is interested in splitting the guide let me know.

Even though it was hot, this was a fun event. The Mitchell's are great hosts and really did a great job.
I have been wanting to break into the Two Hand game for a while, but have been reluctant to drop a load of cash on an experiment. The lexicon is overwhelming, the crowd seemingly...
For those interested in a great summertime weekend roadtrip, The Evening Hatch is once again hosting the 4th annual Klickitat Spey Clave! If you've never been, it's a great event that blends a family friendly atmosphere with informative presentations and various tackle demos to try out. Here is...
We hooked into our first Steelhead of the season on a float down the Klickitat a few days ago. Here's a short video of the net. Enjoy.
