With a last hurrah spring steelhead is going out with a bang. We saw some great fish this winter and spring, but are looking forward to trout, bass, and other warmwater exploits soon.
Stay tuned for product updates soon, along with some new shirt and hat designs for summer.
Winter steelhead season is in full swing in the PNW, and even though Puget Sound rivers are closed down across Washington state now the opportunities continue throughout the area. From BC to California, March and April hold promise for big hard fighting winter steelhead.
Steelhead season has already been pretty good to us here. A few fish here and through spread thoughout a few fishless days (ok, quite a few fishless days) has been the norm.
We explored some new water.
We swung flies. We fished float rods and spoons too.
We saw a few fish.
We’re looking forward to a good rest of the season.
With huge areas of eastern Washington burning, smoke and ash piled up on us as we continued to cast and cast and cast in the search of a solid tug.
More than once.
Not all were huge
We’ve said it before, but whether you’re an experienced musky chaser, or are over your 10,000 casts without a fish it would never be a bad idea to get in touch with Musky Dave of Warmwater Rambler guide service. He will put you on fish.

Back on the westside – just had to stop off for a quick dolly.
Some fly fishing action from the Pacific Northwest this past summer.
Winter steelheading with the spey rod is all about the experience. Making the cast. Mending the line. Slight modifications to the swing to slow the fly down, get the presentation just right. Sometimes you hook up, mostly you don’t. Aside from some bull trout, this day we went fishless.
But a nice catch nonetheless. Love the spots on this fish.
Well, you have to start the week of some way. And what better way than looking at these fish porn photos of this fat bull trout that was caught and released over the weekend.
