Big Fish being Had
As we get the winds of March out of the way we will see water and air temperatures easing up. This will put fish on the move. The trout that have been providing some great action back in the creeks will begin to ease out towards the river and sound. Their winter hibernation will be over.

2016 in Nut Shell

I did cancel a lot due to not good fishing and I don’t take some ones money just because. If I have doubts we won’t go. Can’t guarantee fish but sometimes it’s almost impossible. I gave clients the option. Bookings looking good starting out this year with one group trip...read full article

Start of Fall Fishing
Have had fair success with small trout and few legals, lot of pups and some decent flounder.
Rock season opens Oct 1 and they are eating good in stump fields.
Doing 5 hour $400 trips targeting top water and moving into some trout/mixed bag. Can do 3 anglers but 2 is better for you anglers.
Just a call away!
