October Tease

Your Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing Guide.
Catch & Release, Fly Fishing Only

This is Andy, taking his morning nap.

This is Andy, fishing.

This is Andy, catching a sea-run cutthroat trout.

Andy caught a lot of nice fish here last week.

Be like Andy!

     It has been uncommonly mild and pleasant here over the last few weeks, more like the "Indian Summer"weather of September, than a typical mid-October.  The mornings on the bay have been cool, foggy at times, even damp and drizzling. But by later morning the sun has been coming out, the winds very light, the 60 degree warmth has been a blessing, the sea-run cutthroat trout have been biting, and no one is complaining. We have had some truly stellar days of fishing this month. We have even gotten a little sunburn, in October!!! And since the coastal rivers have been running too low for weeks, and some of them have even been closed to fishing under emergency rules, here, and also here, we are enjoying the sea-run coastal cutthroat trout fishing on the saltchuck all the more this fall.

    According to the Northwest River Forecast Center 10 day forecast, The rivers will be getting some much needed rain relief soon, as heavy rains are expected to move in on the coast and Olympic Mountains next week. But if it gets really heavy, the flows may be high and dirty for a while. These saltwater beaches will clean up fast after a storm. And the cutthroat fishing will usually go well through November and December.

 This is some of the best sea-run cutthroat trout fishing on the Olympic Peninsula- the summer "tourons" are gone, and the fish are on the feed.

This is a classic wooden Swampscott Dory. Fully restored. We row the beaches, casting for sea-runs. This is the most traditional, salty and relaxing way to fly fish for sea-run coastal cutthroat trout.

Your Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing Guide and Instructor

    I am guiding fly fishers on the Olympic Peninsula beaches, rivers and streams. We walk and wade, or row along the shorelines in the dory, fly fishing for sea-run Coastal Cutthroat trout in the saltwater, and in the rivers for Cutthroat trout and summer steelhead. This is all strictly catch and release, traditional, barbless single hook, fly fishing only. Lunch, snacks, soft beverages, and use of some equipment is included. I also offer personalized and private fly fishing and fly casting instruction for beginners through advanced casters. I would be happy to help you plan your Olympic Peninsula fly fishing adventure, for all levels of ability, beginner to expert. Public presentations, Naturalist Guide, rowboat picnics, tide pool and  river trail day trips. Please call, write or email for booking details. Now booking for April through October and beyond.
