Just to be sure my Thursday experience at Ala Spit wasn't a fluke, I returned there yesterday afternoon. The incoming tide was a little higher than before, so I was fishing different water, but the end result was the same: no fish. I can't believe it will be long before fish start showing up at Ala.

Been out on the water recently? Let us know where you were, what you were using, and how you did.
Here's a report from Jeff Sturm. "I’ve been getting out on Pass Lake semi-regularly (almost weekly). Nothing too surprising, 2-3 rainbows to the net about the same number lost. However, I was there a week ago and while a beautiful day, I only had one bite and luckily I kept it on. I knew from the
Dateline, Montana. Evidently I need new waders. Fishing Rock Creek today I felt like I was fishing in a Northwest downpour: non-stop heavy rain. By the time I got off the river my pants and socks were soaking wet, and I hadn't fallen in the river for a change. The water just ran down my raincoat and
I fished Ala Spit in the morning last Saturday (9/3), hoping to find a coho. No luck. I didn't see any action from three other fishers nearby either (two fly fishers; one gear fisher). I had a couple small pecks from something on my first couple casts, but nothing after that. Paul Messner told me
Jim Rohrer, Pete Tobin, and Bob Adams fished Lone Lake on this date. The lake was still fishable given the recent weather for Western Washington/Whidbey Island. Expect this condition to rapidly change with the temperature going above 70-75 degrees. Lake water temperature was recorded at 71 degree
A heart-warming turnout, weather as good as we could have expected, aggressive fish, and fine eats: what more could a person ask? The revived first annual Nyerges Nymph One-Fly Outing was a hit! Nearly a dozen club members took to the water, and another half-dozen came to help with lunch. That's my
The weather was great, the bugs were out, and the fish were up! We couldn't have asked for more last Wednesday as eight club members enjoyed a day's fishing on the Yakima River. Four guides from Red's Fly Shop shared their expertise and pleasant personalities with us--putting us on a lot of fish, te
Pete Tobin and I fished a couple of lakes in the Winthrop area. June 14 we fished Big Twin and had some success with big dry flies. We were told that the trout were at the 25 foot level, but we watched active surface feeding in the east end of lake. And this was the ticket to some good dry fly ac
I spent an couple hours fishing the outgoing tide at Ala Spit yesterday. Trying to get to the water was a chore in itself, given all the clam diggers. From the smiles and full buckets I saw, it must have been a success for everyone. Fishing (or catching, at least) was less common, though not tota
Had a great day on the Yakima yesterday. My old friend Jim and I floated from Red's to Roza with Craig, a guide from Red's Fly Shop. Craig was an awesome guide. We hit the water about 10:30am and used a two fly nymph setup. Both rigs had a small beaded worm fly below a larger weighted nymph under
