Good Steelhead Bite On the Clearwater River

2020-05-08T12:27:05-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Negative publicity has killed the crowds on the Clearwater River this year, but for the anglers that have come and fished with us the bite has been excellent. To start the season they closed the Clearwater because they didn’t think they were going to have a lot of fish. Fortunately, the river [...]

Buoy 10 Update: Way Better Than Expected

2019-10-31T08:54:23-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt After a dismal preseason forecast we’ve been pleasantly surprised at how good the fishing has been at Buoy 10. It’s way better than expected. Way better. In a normal year you don’t often experience a good Chinook and coho run. It’s usually one or the other. However, this season we’ve been catching [...]

Drano Lake Salmon Update

2019-10-31T08:54:22-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Drano Lake was expected to have a down run this year and it’s been slower than normal. However, we are catching salmon daily. We aren’t setting any records, but we knew this was how it was going to be. The unfortunate truth is we don’t have a lot of options in Washington. [...]

Hanford Reach Still Open to Salmon Fishing

2019-10-31T08:54:14-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt While most of the Columbia River is closed to salmon fishing the Hanford Reach is still open and producing decent numbers of Chinook. In a normal year we have at least a two fish limit, but this year with low numbers of salmon returning we only have a one-fish limit. So far, [...]

Last Chance for Clearwater Springers

2019-10-31T08:54:01-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt We are at the tail end of the springer run, but most likely we are going to have one good weekend in Orofino (this weekend) and one good weekend in Kooskia (next weekend) and then it will be over. We have two good weekends of springer fishing left on the Clearwater in [...]

Drano Lake Springers Starting to Show

2019-10-31T08:53:54-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Following a slow March and early April many anglers were worried that this was going to be another disappointing springer run. However, we’re realizing that the fish are likely just a few weeks behind schedule. After a slow start to the run in the Lower Columbia River springers have finally started their [...]

Clearwater River Steelhead Better Than Expected

2019-10-31T08:53:42-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Steelhead fishing is unexpectedly better than we expected it to be. Prior to the season the Idaho Department of Fish & Game thought we were going to have a dismal return on the Clearwater River. However, there’s far more fish showing up than we expected. It’s been a good year for us. [...]

Use Brined Shrimp For Drano/Wind River Springers

2018-04-18T18:58:10-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Although upriver stocks of spring salmon (those headed to Eastern Washington and Idaho) are struggling, Drano and the Wind River still have good runs of springers. Because of these two fisheries a lot of us fishing guides were able to salvage a season. These are two places that are thriving now and [...]

Anglers Working Harder For Hanford Reach Salmon

2019-10-31T08:52:58-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Considering they predicted one million salmon and we only got 500,000 across Bonneville the run wasn’t what we expected. It never reached potential. On the bright side, however, with the time we are putting in we are still catching fish daily. We haven’t had any days where we got skunked. Last year [...]
