Insane amounts of bugs and fishing eating them on top. Me The Killer Darin July 30, 2011 at 6:43 pm #617764 bs. 246 Posts anyone got any beta on fishing in the PNW? i’m pretty much a rookie at fly fishing, and i just moved to seattle a couple months ago, so i barely know the area at all. but my dad is coming out for a visit from vermont, and he’s a pretty seasoned fly fisher, so i’d like to take him out somewhere cool. i assume most of the western rivers are still pretty high right now… are the eastern ones looking better? thanks for any advice! August 2, 2011 at 2:32 pm #617765 Rico in AZ 559 Posts I hiked into a pretty remote canyon last Saturday. Tiny creek, and small but beautiful stream bred rainbows. This fish was alone in this pool. I managed to sneak up without spooking him. He proceeded to reject 5 patterns in 45 minutes before I landed him with a tiny pheasant tail. Every fish was brightly colored, probably the most beautiful rainbows I’ve seen anywhere. And one more from a great day August 3, 2011 at 4:13 am #617763 SerreChe 124 Posts great lookin’ stream Rico & good effort on the approach + right fly! Beautiful robes for these raimbows. Always amazed at the diversity of the coloratiions/patterns. Also enjoyed the pic above that of fly-fishing+bear! 😆 classic August 10, 2011 at 9:44 pm #617767 raym 385 Posts did some fishing in the last few days, limited out on pink a few days ago and went out today and got me a 15lbs hatchery spring and 3 more pinks to limit out.

August 15, 2011 at 9:32 pm #617773 SPLITRIPPIN 709 Posts Fishin has been good up here in MN… not as much fly fishing done, but hoping to remedy that. I’m truly convinced a Laker is the finest fish ever up here. I haven’t caught one this year yet, but I’ve tried like hell. Most of the time you get these bastards which have teeth like knives! That was the 1st fish of the day going for Walleye, Bronze Backs, and Brookies. August 17, 2011 at 2:37 am #617774 raym 385 Posts I always wanted to catch one of thouse!!!!! Nice fish by the way :headbang: August 19, 2011 at 2:32 pm #617766 SPLITRIPPIN 709 Posts Ray… That guy put up quite a fight… but, pound for pound…. a Bronzie (small mouth) will crush it.. you literally have to tire them out, so they have no fight in em. They are sooooo fun to catch on a stream trout fly rod. August 20, 2011 at 11:15 pm #617775 KGN 215 Posts Thats a sweet smallmouth. One of my best days on the river consisted of catching about 20 2-3 lb smallies on a small crayfish fly drifted near the bottom. The fight is awesome… Im just about ready to head out to the Fraser river right now to try and bag some sockeyes.

September 13, 2011 at 8:02 pm #617779 SPLITRIPPIN 709 Posts I think as the years go by, and I get better w/ the fly rod… I really enjoying getting out there. Fishing season is slowly ending, but I appreciate the fish stoke ya’ll!! :bananas: September 24, 2011 at 5:06 pm #617781 Rico in AZ 559 Posts A couple pics from a couple weeks ago in the San Juans. Trip was surprisingly low on fish count, except a few nice Cutts in a tiny creek above Rico (the town).
