Winter Steelhead Season Has Begun

Winter Steelhead
Our first day of winter steelhead season started off with a bang. We hit two steelhead and farmed a third in just over 2/3 of a day fishing.  The next day our luck wasn't as good and the fish were playing hard to get. Thats the way it can be for winter steelheading on a fly. The good news is we know there are fish around and the ones that are here are shiny and ready for battle.


On Monday a big rain storm hit our area and the Sandy went from 3500 cfs to over 25000 cfs in a matter of 16 hours. But the river level is coming down fast (12,300 cfs as of Tuesday night) and with the freezing level dropping the Sandy should be back into shape before we know it. With this big spike in the river level it should bring in the next wave fish into the Sandy.

Snow Snow Go Away


With the light dusting of snow and freezing weather that hit us last Wednesday,  pretty much put us in a holding pattern for the past week. The crazy weather hit us so hard we couldn't even get our boats out of the driveway for a few days


Then when we finally got them to the river, it started freezing up so fast we could hardly get our boats out of the water.


But finally the weather is warming up again and we are heading to the Sandy River to winter steelhead. Yep it's that time of year.
