Yesterday it was way colder than the day before but Norm and I decided to go after them anyways! we headed out mid morning trying to reach for some temps that were tolerable. We had high sun and far less fish activity today but we still managed to land a MONSTER!

Two days ago Norm and I had the river to ourselves. We saw a couple of wade fisherman by the boat ramp but we literally didn't see another angler after that. We just thought it was cold...cold was still yet to come. It was drizzly and wet and perfect for fishing. Norm landed several super nice browns and one stud rainbow!

Well the past few weeks I have seen some great fish, Yesterday some more of the fish I have been seeing floating around higher in the water column finally started to eat. Its Been windy as hell the past two days. Herman and Frank casted wonderful in the wind and didn't get frustrated. They bared with me as I was blown around like I had a sail on my boat! Here are a few of the fish we were blessed to catch!
Just in case you guys didn't know, my dad is the man. We don't get to fish together nearly as much as I would like but I was surprised with a cool treat on monday. I was out guiding when I came around a corner to see my dad out fishing. He was cool enough to share his spot and I shared some nuts and an apple. Then he totally guided my clients into some fish! Was spotting them and helping them cast to them! It was really cool. Anyways I snapped this quick photo. Its not the biggest fish he caught all weekend I can assure you, but it was one of the ones I was around for! I Love You Pops! thanks for being so awesome!~
Well the Portera's came back for the annual fall classic fishing day. Its been really neat watching Will grow into a pretty good angler and a young man over the years. This was the first year he held his own with pops, well actually passed pops in the big fish show. Both guys did awesome and we caught lots of fish. These two just happened to be nicer than the rest!
Last week I got to fish some some great guys who had known each other for years. They had both moved away and grown families and got together for a little fly fishing. It was a pretty neat experience getting to hang with the guys and hear all about their lives. We caught lots of fish including these nice to bows

Yesterday I got the chance to fish with the good Dr. Albright and his resident Adam. It was a cool, cloudy, rainy morning on the Little Red. Those type of days are the best for catching browns. People always say they want to catch the browns but these are the days when its done. We fished for a half of day and they landed a handful of rainbows each as well as a nice brown or two!

John and Shane fished with me last week. We started the Day off doing a little drift fishing. We caught lots of fish from the boat right out of the gate and as the morning progressed it slowed a little so we decided to do some wading. Then we got back in the boat and fished some of the new rising water and threw some streamers. All of our methods produced fishing including this one river monster! Shane had one on that was larger that we lost right at the net....
So over the past 5 years or so Ryan Mahoney has been fishing with me, he's learned a lot. He has landed some great fish, and he has lost some good fish. One thing is for sure though. He continued to fish and put in his dues. Well his River Karma was good last sunday. He landed this monster...plus several other fish along with his lady. I would say all the way around. Ryan was on top on his world on Sunday.
Fished a group trip last week of some Texans. Buster and Tyler ended up in my boat. We chased a small amount of water and it made for some good fishing! we caught plenty of fish all day and had a great time doing it, this was one of buster's prettier fish he landed that day so we made sure to snap a pic. was pleased with the way it came out!
