DRYFT waders

The DRYFT waders crew has been out hitting the rivers a few times since they opened a couple weeks ago on the first of June. Targeting summer steelhead, we’ve seen mostly resident rainbows and a few anadromous bull trout. This past week we got out and caught a pretty big incidental bull. Here are some photos.

Photo selection: Bull trout, rain, and DRYFT Waders

Conditions were less than optimal for fishing on Saturday. Freezing rain, wind, and waves made fishing a bit difficult to say the least. The use of a light switch rod made handling the wind better, but completely numb hands (nothing like forgetting the gloves at home) were really starting to get in the way of a fun time. Luckily, a few fish showed up to play so the adrenaline rush kept us out long enough to snap a few pics.

The first fish of the day.

What defines the fishing lifestyle?

Big bull trout fly fishing lifestyle

As I was eagerly tearing into the newest issue of The Drake, the very first article has a great quote that I feel just about sums it up perfectly.  From the “put-in” in the Spring issue of The Drake:

“It’s not only the week-long or even weekend trips that define a flyfishing (or fishing) lifestyle. It’s where you can go after work, when you only have an our until dark.”

So are you going today after work or this weekend for a few hours? The bull trout pictured here was caught while fishing for less than an hour after work a few weeks back.
