East Lake Update 10/17/18

East is still fishing pretty consistently, and while the days can be cold and blustery those willing to take the boat out are finding fairly consistent action and some beautiful fish. There are a lot of fish in the shallows, which makes targeting them with a nymph rig, dry dropper, or streamer pretty simple. We …

Lava Update 10/12/18

This is one of our favorite times of year to fish Lava, with the cooler temperatures the fish are well spread throughout the lake and relatively easy to find. We concentrate most of our efforts on shallower areas, and fish primarily under an indicator. Stripping a leech pattern or Wooly Bugger should also find fish, …

Hosmer Update 9/19/18

Now that the warmest days of summer are behind us the crowds are starting to thin on Hosmer. There is still plenty of paddle traffic, especially on the weekends, so don’t expect to have the lake to yourself, but most weekdays it is possible to work around the paddlers and get some decent fishing in. …

Crane Prairie Update 9/19/18

It’s definitely Fall on the Cascade lakes and with the cooler weather we’ve seen water temperatures begin to drop pretty dramatically. As a result, fish are moving out of the channels, so covering water to find fish is often the first priority upon putting the boat on the water. Leech patterns and Wooly Buggers on …
