Fishing Report 9/16/22


For all of you who have calling, messaging, and coming in to ask about salmon; they have started to ascend all of our local rivers. Right now, fish are moving in pods throughout the system working their way upstream towards gravel. Don't be afraid to set up shop once you find a spot as fish tend to move throughout the day. Low light is still going to be your best bet so get on the water early. As river temps continue to drop with fall rains and north wind more and more fish will find their way into these river systems.  

Jake has been on the water nearly every day and has the salmon program dialed in. He still has dates available if you want to get out and have some fun with these big fish! Just give us a call so we can get you on the calendar.
    • Egg Flies 2-4 (chartreuse, orange, egg)
    • Green Caddis #6-8
    • Egg Sucking Leeches #4 (pink, orange)
    • Steelhead Wooly Buggers #6


    Even though many anglers forget about resident trout this time of year, there is plenty of good fishing left on the calendar. The lack of rain this summer has put our rivers in a low water state that not many of us have seen before. I think this has really effected some of our summer fun. Luckily we're on track to have an actual fall this year as we've already seen some good rain events and cool overnight temperatures. Hopefully this trend will continue and fishing will continue to improve through the fall months. 


      • Flying Ants 10-14
      • Chubby Chernobyls 10-14
      • Parachute Hopper 12
      • Parachute Patriot 14
      • Purple Haze 14-16
      • Rainbow Warrior 12-14

      • Hare's Ear 12-16
      Besides salmon and trout, this time of year anglers can find smallmouth bass coming into the shallows in low light conditions. Crayfish patterns are still working well but as water temps begin to drop they will begin to focus on baitfish patterns.
