Water for Fish

Federal Appeals Court Upholds Protections for Central Valley Salmon.  Check out the link above and educate yourself on whats going on with freshwater in our state. A never-ending hot topic. We need WILD Salmon and Steelhead in our valley rivers. We need suitable habitat for these fish to exist. Taking water from the Delta and sending it south to irrigate a desert in central and southern California is hard to make sense of. Ultimately, we need to find a long term balance between Humans and Fish. It is refreshing to see the Federal Court uphold protections for these fish. A small step in the right direction.

The Song Remains the Same

I'll say it again.. Steelhead fishing on the Klamath River REMAINS good, great, grand, wonderful.. We've had a good dose of rain over the past week. Tribs swelled up and a lot of fish moved around. New fish have showed upriver. The flows are still low coming from the Gate (1,000 cubes) and water temps have dropped down into the low 40s. Fish have surrendered to their winter spots. I had two of my favorite people to have in the boat out today. Bob and Dennis always bring a great vibe to the river and always wreck fish when they're together. They put a few cool doubles to the net today too. Wether we're trout or steelhead fishing - these guys always manage some awesome doubles. We didn't have another boat...

Portugal 2013 Road-Trip Gallery

Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about....

I just had this coming weekend (December 12-14) open up. This is prime steelhead time in Northern California. Click HERE to check out some more winter steelhead  ...

Update

Lower Sac We had some solid rain up here the past few days. Damn, it feels good to see the skies open up like this finally. It's been a long time coming. Flows from Keswick are down to 3,500 cubes (Which is nice and low) and expected to stay here for most of the winter. I was on the river for a few days recently with a couple of new anglers. The river fished very well for us over the course of the trip. Yes, the water is dirty still (2-3 ft visibility) but the fish are eating in the right spots. They even ate smaller bugs.. There are still a few salmon around and the redds that are fired up definitely have egg eating trout around them. It will be...

Louisiana Reds

I just got back from Louisiana a few days ago. Redfishin' with a couple of the boys I worked in AK with the past few years. It's a welcomed change of pace down there - much different than the freshwater game we play here in Northern California. Watching a Red chase down and kill your fly is bad ass to say the least.. Their vision isn't great so you can get fairly close to them, putting the fly right in their feeding lane is important. Once they see it and commit, they'll swim through a brick wall to put that thing in their gut. Their armor is tough - requiring an electric saw to get to their flesh when filleting them out. And they're delicious too. We ate Redfish just...
