Back on the McCloud! What a treat. The fishing was good and we saw some nice big browns. The river has not yet shown any affects from the Bagley fire. Try and get a day on it this fall.
Well the fire hasn’t pushed all the fish out. I havn’t seen the upper part of the lower McCloud yet but what I have seen is fishing well. We caught fish on dries and this guy was sitting right were he was supposed to be. We had a better than great time with this crew. [...]
I had a great time fishing with Chris on these two rivers. Its gonna be an annual. We fished at sunrise, caught some steelhead on dry flies and spey casted ourselves into the ground. Chris is an excellent host, and we fished our asses off.
These fish are getting fat and we are just about to see them get fatter when the salmon start to throw some eggs.
Forever now known as Tory Salmon. By the time I hooked one he had hooked over ten and brought four to the bank. The Lower Klamath is fishing well as we saw some nice chrome bright ass kicking steelhead and some monster kings. I brought everything I needed to get into those famed half pounders, [...]
I simply love guiding this river. What a treat to have such a fishery in our line-up. Now we have a full time guide Keith Lyon who lives ten minutes from the boat ramp and has fished it all his life. Come fish the Rogue this Fall. Nice fish Patsy!!!! on a Squatch Stix at [...]

As choppers lifted buckets of her clean glacial waters to drop on charred forest, mayflies emerged through a floating layer of ash into an apocalyptic world of strange beauty. Those that were too cautious were eaten by streaks of rainbows and browns. The [...]
A play day on the Lower Sac. We skipped Redding and went South, out of the smoke and out of the crowds. Super fun day with this crew.
I saw a some fading leaves today. Its only a matter of days before we start seeing king salmon and the cherished steelhead that follow so closely behind. With the recent dam removals the Rogue is now a 157 mile freeway for fish.
We strolled out for a morning fishing session from Ash camp and when we returned to the cars the camp ground was empty. A forest service employee came down and politely asked us to vacate due to a wild fire closing in. So we packed up and went to the Upper Sac.
