    3 Flies for the Week: February 12

    With stable conditions continuing on from last week into this week, I’d expect fishing to remain stable as well. As of late it’s been phenomenal, warm air temperatures have been able to increase water temperatures during the middle of the...

    3 Flies for the week: February 5

    Well that was a lot of snow that we got over the weekend. Definitely wasn’t a fun drive, but it was much needed for our river systems. We are currently below the average snowpack and things aren’t looking too promising...

    Trip Report: Cheesman Canyon 1/2/24

    When it comes to mid-winter trout fishing, there is no better option than your local tailwater.  My most recent visit to Cheesman Canyon proved just that. We hiked quite a ways in from the trail to find what we believed to...
