It seems like Groundhog Day. Hot sun, great scenery and awesome smallmouth action. The fish are hitting topwater still at times, and have moved more towards the quick water. These recent rainstorms have been great and have kept the fish very active. Let's be honest, it's cool to hookup subsurface, but no freshwater fish beats the topwater takes of a feisty smallmouth!
We have some openings for August available, but are very limited to certain dates. Let us know if you'd like to get out there before summer is over. August is a great month to chase smallmouth bass.
We'd also like to welcome our newest member of the team. Meet Joy! She had a test run on Vince's boat last week and passed with flying colors. We can foresee many lazy summer days on the boat for this girl!
Those really hot summer temps are hopefully come and gone. The fishing has held on through all of it. The smallmouth fishing is at its peak and it's a great time for a trip. We have several openings still for July during the week and more in August. Fishing for smallmouth is fun, challenging and rewarding. Floating in the sun, wearing shorts and sandals, bumping Bald Eagles, eating great food and fighting strong smallies are all in a day's fishing!
We're still taking inquiries for trout fishing trips, but I'll only do half day trips from 2 to 8 pm right now as not to stress out the fish too much. You'll get 6 hours for the price of 4, so if you're around the Western Mountains (about 2 hours north of Portland) let us know and we can get you on the water. I don't have many dates left for September, but give us a buzz and let us know if you're looking for a great fall foliage fly fishing trip where brookies have brilliant red bellies to match the trees!
