Mike of Missoula got a nice stringer with us on his first ever spearfishing trip. Water temps around 58* and visibility about 10 ft. Mike made some great shots today and took home a couple bags of fillets as proof. He looks pretty happy with his stringer. As usual each fish had either Cutthroats or [...]
She’s ready to go. Big bugs. Upper river, but not entirely. Cool new bugs at the shop. Get out there.
Chris is one year closer to cheap fishing licenses, and social security today. River Otter soon to carry Prunes and Ensure. Funny how there are more glasses with cheaters than without in stock these days. Happy Birthday Chris!
It looks like the Salmon Fly fishing is right around the corner on the upper river. Are guys already doing it, yes. Is it good, not quite yet. There are a handful of adults out there, but not what we need to start the frenzied action that we dream about. The next few warm days [...]
That is the word of the week. Lots of guys hitting the upper river (think Darby and up the Forks) with good success on the Kauffman’s stones, Georges Brown Stones (rubber legs), and the Girdle Bug. Don’t overlook the worms either. Some dry fly action as well on Cat Pukes, Rogues, and assorted chunks of [...]
The water looks remarkably good at the bridge this morning, enough so that I wouldn’t think twice about going for it with my favorite box of worms. Chuck a streamer if you don’t mind the work. The drop in flows and lack of pressure should equal some good fishing this week, at least until things [...]
These aren’t fish I shoot often, but enough is enough sometimes when dealing with toothy predators. This one got a little to interested in me while hunting wahoo in the blue water and fell to my new 57″ gun.
I spent the last nine days covering 600 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico spearfishing multiple species of fish along the way. All fish were shot free diving in depths from 50-180ft. We hunted on offshore shipwrecks, navigational towers, hard bottom, and living coral . We returned home with full fish boxes and plenty [...]
This morning’s weather at the shop is perfect. Warm (overnight temps stayed in the 40′s), Overcast (nice thick blanket of dry low-level clouds), and Still (not a lick of breeze as of yet). The river has been seeing a pretty consistent Drake hatch and today you have the weather to get them going. Look for [...]
What to do with a day off? Fish of course. Boat? No. Flies?No. Tangles? Yep, still had some tangles. I took my daughter to give the local fish a little exercise this morning and enjoy a little time laying in the grass- after the last few days today felt like summer out there. She did [...]
