With the warm easy days of summer fading in the rearview mirror, we took time out for a quick trip over the mountains to the dry and fertile area of Eastern Washington for some trout fishing. We met up with Leaf Seaburg of Methow Fishing Adventures, and set off with high expectations. All expectations were exceeded with plenty of fish catching and fun having. Enjoy these photos from this great early fall day on the river.
We woke up early (5:15am!), strapped up our DRYFT Primo Zip front waders, stuffed lunches and drinks into our BKCNTRY packs and headed for the river. Fishing didn’t slow up all day- with solid takes on dries and streamers keeping the action moving quickly from first light well into the afternoon.

Fall fishing in the PNW backcountry has a lot to offer.
Getting remote and exploring streams and rivers in the mountain regions can pay off big. Recently Nick and Sam went out on a quick overnight mission to explore some new water.
Upon arriving to the area we’d be exploring we were greeted by multiple signs warning of an aggressive bear ransacking occupied campsites. “Camping not advised’ warned one of the signs. Good thing we forgot the bear spray at home.
Well in the end we survived the night without a bear attack. 🙂
Fishing turned out to be tough, but the scenery sure was easy on the eyes. This was a perfect way to step back and get grounded before the busy fall season picks up. Here are some photos from the trip.

Recently we heard rumors of some half man half wolf beast terrorizing fish with a fly rod up on the Kenai. We investigated and this is what we found…
Oh, the horror.
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.
Coming at you with a photo from this fall and a reminder to try some new water this fall and winter. Here we’re exploring a wadeable small creek in AK which gave up a few big ‘bows. #Madefortheriver
