Fishing Reports

For nearly 20 years, my favorite pastime has been flyfishing. I've fished all over states of Washington and Colorado and many places in between. I had a popular fishing blog for Washington called www.flyfishsnoqualmie.com. Many of my other fishing reports can be found on my TravelGhost tumblr..

In the old, old days, I used to write straight-up html fishing reports, and you can still see them below.

2006 Blue Lake

From September 23rd to the 27th, I accompanied Jim Speaker on a fishing trip that he’d been planning for some time. In general I can say that the fishing varied from merely great to fantastic. In five days I fished Beda Lake (WA), The Owyhee River(OR), Silver Creek (ID), Big Wood River (ID) and East Lake(OR). That’s a different location every day and in most of those cases each destination was hundreds of miles from the previous. I put 1800 miles on my truck and caught rainbows, browns and even a kokanee in a desert lake, a muddy tail water, a fabled spring creek, a mountain stream and a volcanic crater lake.

2006 Colorado Fishing Trip Report

My parents live in the town of Montrose, in Western Colorado, which is very close to some of the best fishing in the rockies (so I've heard). When we arrived there the first thing I did was head to the local fly shop (Cimmarron Creek) for the skinny. All over the rockies this time of year, they said, you have to deal with runoff. Basically you have to limit yourself to fishing tailwaters which will be somewhat protected as the flow is regulated. So they directed me to the East Portal in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
