What do you do on your days off, some may ask.  Well, just sit around and eat ice cream, of course!  How about, rebuilding a reel or two for the holidays…Anyone?  Victims of the fall.

Winter Solstice…

Here we are.  Nearing the shortest day of the year, and the holidays.  As we head toward 2014, a new year, we want to say Thankyou to all of our customers, family and friends.  We are looking forward to 2014.  This past year was eventful for sure.  As we enter the new season, and winter Steelhead, we are hoping to see many, if not all of you soon, for a day or two of fishing.
  We are going to be taking a week off from the fishing time.  We will be here at the place.  Cooking, drinking, and hanging out at the fire pit.  If anyone wants to swing by, and have a visit, that would be wonderful.
  For now, enjoy the end of this year, and make the entire year full of happiness, and kindness.  The way it should be…Back to the river soon.  For now, Happy Holidays, and Winter Solstice!

OK…Here we go!  Our neat little cold snap is currently leaving us.  Finally!  It was a tough one out here for us.  Those of you that checked up on us, Thankyou…The only thing we need is a couple bottles of something tasty.  Tell us when you are coming, and we`ll have the bonfire going.     Over the last several days, we sent out an email blast to past customers, and friends.  Some of you we have recently seen, some of you, we have not seen for a while.  And, for anyone new, that might like to come fish with us, we have space.  All of you who visit the site, please get in touch.  It is time now, to get back to a little normal, spend some time on the river, and relax some.  We`ll take the rain and 40`s, over single digits any day.  This season should be good.  Shoot us an email, hit us up on social media, or give us a phone call.  We`ll get everything set up, and get out of our cabin fever funk…

Cold Snap 2013…

Looks like we are on the down hill slide of this super freeze.  One more day of it, and a night.  Been brutal on us.  The typical cranky, irritated, pissed off moods.  Along with the endless work around the place, and being married to the wood stove.  The super cold nights seized the gauges and the pressure valve on the pump house.  On the third night, the gauge broke.  So, another neat bill and fix that is needed.  Kept it as warm as we could, and tried not to kill one another.  And, keep the kitty from going crazy.  He ventured a little today, but still does not like the snow much.  He is a tender foot!
So, as we get out of all of this, we are going to head to the river.  There are some fish here, and should be a bunch as the river rises and warms.  Still super worn out and tired from this stuff, but we are ready to break out of “cabin fever”…Enjoy the rest of the week, and we will give you the latest as things calm.

Winter Gifts!

Winter is here!  Cold and crisp for sure.  Currently, the river is “Blowed” out.  Yes, it is spelled wrong.  Just saying hello to a good friend.  He`ll get it.  We just came off of some serious rain, and now headed into a cold snap.  There are some fresh Steelhead around, and likely a lot more than what we saw last week.
  We are all ready to go for the winter and spring season.  Looking forward to it.  As the holidays approach, we are typically into a holding pattern, and waiting on the weather.  As we head further into the season, fishing this year should be really good.  The normal guys that are not on the calendar yet, get in touch.  You know who you are.  As for new people, give us a shout anytime, and we`ll find a good spot for you.  For now, when the rivers come into shape, we`ll let you know whats shakin` around here…

Fall 2013 Review…

It`s official.  We are done with the Fall Salmon season.  It started off with a “Bang”!  And quit, just as fast as it started.  Early rains flooded the river with fish!  All up and down the coast.  Some of the best we have seen in a while.  But, with the early rain, most of the fish came in, so the late run stopped in an instant.  So, we called it off two weeks earlier than normal.  Even still, the up and coming Steelhead season, looks to be really good all over.  Banner Coho years are the indicator.  Hoping fishermen spread around the state, and the weather cooperates for us.  Right now, we are in a deep freeze.
  As it stands, we are going “Old School”…The traditional Thanksgiving Day start to winter Steelhead season.
  We rarely give the numbers of the fish we catch, but we have had some questions from others.  So, here you go!  Believe it or not, but numbers do not lie, and we take very accurate stats…Fall Kings for 2011.  We landed 381 total.  Fall Kings for the fall of 2012.  We landed 383.  For this year, the fall of 2013, We hooked 472 Chinooks, and landed 447 total…
 Have a wonderful Holiday, be safe, and eat and drink, until you can`t feel feelings.

Fall Season Complete…

Our Fall Salmon season looks to be done.  A couple of weeks early this year.  With the early fall rains, a bulk of the late fish came in early.  The normal mid November return has already come and gone it seems.  There are also some early Steelhead showing.  So, it was an early fall, and soon to be an early winter it seems.
  Although cut short, it was an amazing year for us.  Catch rates we above normal.  Was getting close to a 500 fish year.  Almost, but not quite.  Have not done the final tally for the fall kings, but we hooked about 480, and landed around 440.  Something like that.  Not bad in our opinion.
  We saw the usual faces, which is always nice.  And some new people as well.  All in all, a good year for us.  A return and recovery from the last few years, since the economy issues.  Hope the trend continues.  We`ll still catch a few more Chinooks, but are mainly getting focused on Steelhead now.  All of the signs are there for a good season for them as well.  We shall see.  Be kind of interesting to see how many Chinooks we get later on the light gear.  Always entertaining!
  For now, we are going to wrap things up for the fall, and head into winter.  Give everyone one more shot with the final results of the year.  There are some photo albums on our Facebook pages, so you can check that out.
  Back out into the rain and cold, to work on the gear switch.  Heck, the weather is kind of crappy, maybe we`ll go get a little crabby!
