February 6, 2006 — March Winds????????????? With our warm weather or non existent winter we are getting our March winds early. Fished 5 days last week and seems we had winds from every direction.

October 9, 2005 — Fall…Finally Man, for a while there it appeared that Mother Nature had reinvented herself into Eddie Murphy's Aunt Bunny that if you recall from Delirious took 15 minutes to fall down a flight of stairs. Well, Mother Nature finally fell ushering in clean clear water, cool temperatures, and finally a decent […]
March 26, 2003 — TROPHY TROUT TIME Trophy Trout Season officially kicked off last week! Early last week Greg Cortez of Bay City caught a 32 inch trout with a 16 inch girth on one day and followed up with a 30 inch trout that had a 15 inch girth the next day. Both fish […]

Re: Official Word on East Cut Dredging 🙂 This is great news and that is not an unrealistic amount of money to raise. We just need some good ideas on rocks to turn over and possibly a couple of fundraisers (tournaments, BBQ’s, and etc). Maybe a bumper sticker program like the cops have with the […]

April 25, 2006 — Water Goes Up Must Come Down Seems like every time the reds get the opportunity to have enough water on the edges to really get podding, the bottom drops out a drives them back to the deeper guts. Tidal conditions like this are enough to drive a fly fisherman mad. On […]

March 30, 2006 — Consistency Blows!

October 18, 2005 — Holy Toledo The NLCS and local conditions are apparently a symbiotic relationship: dramatic strikeouts and long long homeruns!

December 5, 2003 — Transition!!!! When was the last time you played with a Yo-Yo? That little toy from years gone by best sums up the pattern lately.

April 11, 2006 — Remember the Nineties…Return of the Top-Dog The last 6 days seemed like the nineties. Pre-meat haulers!!!! Five of our guests were able to better their lifetime best trout during the last six days! What is amazing is the weight of these fish for some of their lengths. Can you say FAT? […]
October 27, 2005 — Finally a Real Cool Front!!!! After continued dismal fishing conditions the past two weeks: a BRIGHT SPOT!!!!
