Bunnies and bullies

When fall first hits, before the big rains, the rivers drop low and salmon move their way into the upper reaches. Bull trout follow, and so do we.

 

While getting ready to do the real business of the season, they certainly aren’t past cozying up behind spawning salmon and smacking a big bunny fly or egg sucking leech.

Friday fishing photos

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.
