This week there is a lout more going on, a bit different from last week. Fist we did some more scouting on some new trout water. I am very please by what we found so far. Trout fishing in mid to late August is not the beat or the easiest trout fishing, but we did very well for this time of the year. Water flows and temps were good we head a few bugs around. This trout creek has a big hatch of Ios’s or more commonly known as the slate drake. This Creek also have in large population of stoneflies, apparently large enough to have stoneflies constantly catching all through the fishing season. We were able to catch all three trout, Brown trout, Rainbow trout, Brook trout.  There is several miles of quality trout water and this trout creek is a little isolated, we are fishing in the woods. The fishing pressure seems to be light as far as we can see. We have a lot more research to do. I will keep making updates as the project develops.

Now for the local trout streams, as we all know water flows have been up. The dry fly fishing has been extremely difficult, partially due to higher than normal water flows for this time of year. For now the best approach would be, concentrate your efforts with streamer fishing. This way you can cover a lot of water and possibly find small pods of fish that might be feeding on the surface. Just keep in mind it is late August and there is a lot of big fish food around, plus not many bugs left to hatch.

We all know that salmon season is close at hand. In fact this past week there was a small run of salmon on the Salmon River. We had a cool day with stiff northwest winds and the water flows were up. In came a few salmon, not a big run but just a few fish. Some of you might be familiar with one of our guides, Rick Smith. Rick was on the water the other day checking out the rumors of the salmon. What he found was quite interesting. If you were looking, you didn’t find anything. However if you went fishing, you would keep popping into an ad salmon. They were spread out through most of the river. If this becomes a pattern, then we can count on an early run of salmon. But for now I do not expect the salmon fishing to kick in until 1 September.

I still have prime dates available for salmon fishing, In September, 14,15,16,19,25,30 and early October Salmon fishing and mid October steelhead fishing.  Anyone that has any questions, Feel free to give me a call at your convenience cell is 585-233-0436
