    The last of our mountain streams are closing at the end of this month and we’ll be solidly into the fall and soon winter seasons. Aside from the occasional steelhead trip, I'll mostly be fishing the Yakima (maybe Cle Elum too) and the various spring creeks just east of where I live in Wenatchee...

    Planning a honeymoon for next winter between Nov and Feb (not during holidays though). Girlfriend has mentioned Hawaii, New Orleans, and Bermuda, but we're still researching. She's more into the all-inclusive resort type scenario, I'm more inclined to air b&b and do it myself because I am a...

    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...

    Howdy Sea-Run Cutthroat Fly tyers and Fly Fishermen, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this but I thought I would give it a try. I am teaching a class on Sea-Run Cutthroat Winter patterns and how to fish them at Peninsula Outfitters Fly Shop In Poulsbo, Wa. This Saturday March 3, from 10:30...

    I spent a few days at the "ranch" doing some remodeling. Afterwards, I took a short drive to a local lake. Lo and behold there were two hardy fishermen doing their best despite a foot of ice and 8 inches of snow. Both had taken some nice trout and lost a couple too. Not my cup of tea, I'll wait...

    We've gotten a lot of snow this season. Here are a couple: field mouse tracks, Nuthatch taking flight.

    An awkward pose by a clumsy lake fisherman trying to look cool with his big stocker: Took a #10 bead head bunny leech on an intermediate line. There are more there. One pod that ambled by my pontoon numbered 18 fish. Kid you not.... 18 7# rainbows... Two-three feet down, just slowly cruising by...

    Been fly fishing for a few months now & haven't caught a thing. I go every weekend, get in my kayak or wade. I have fished lakes on Whidbey island (pass, cranberry) & the skagit river. I have been wet fly fishing because I think it's to cold to dry fly and I never see fish surfacing. I have a...

    Starting a fresh box for winter in the sound. Going to try and keep it limited to the "must haves", curious what others have if they have a specific winter specific box for the sound? Next up to tie I have some green and silvers, crazy plankton, squimp, fj pink, bristle worms Justin waters...

    Hi folks, I do most of my fishing during the warmer months but I'm itching to fish. I'm coming off of back surgery and will be ready to go late January. My question is... what type of water do you fish (and catch fish) in the colder months? I was thinking of tossing a streamer in water that...

    anyone else seeing the same? I moved back last winter so this is my first winter back in the saltwater game over here. I have been seeing a lot of resident coho in the south sound around key peninsula. hoping to get out tomorrow or next weekend. clint

    Im going to be buying a new dedicated 8 weight Spey rod for winter steelheading on the Olympic Peninsula, and I need some community input on deciding what to buy. I will only be buying either a echo rod or a sage rod in an eight weight. I can buy any of the echo offerings like the Echo 3 or the...

    I might pick up a spey outfit after wetting my river appetite again last weekend. It won't get much use. Maybe 10 times per year at the most. I've tried the two handed game before. I'm two handed challenged to say the least. River right I'm OK. River left anchoring, someone may get injured...

    This forecast is astounding! With the river flows on the drop, after all of that high water, this might be as good as it gets for fishing the winter hatchery runs. http://cliffmass.blogspot.com/2017/12/the-upcoming-december-drought-in.html?m=1

    It's almost that time of year again: fly-tying class season! Many clubs in the area offer classes but I'm a bit biased being a member of the Evergreen Fly Fishing Club. Starting in January the EFFC will be presenting our annual 12-week fly-tying class. We begin with the basics and work up to...

    This is the line I bought at the start of the year when I got my Sage X 8wt, it's not a bad line but the bird nesting of the running line is horrible, more ruined casts then good ones, used it a few times on the coast in the spring & a couple times last month on the river, think i'll try & sell...
