Good Conditions- Cold, Cloudy and Wet!

Cold, Cloudy and Wet!

The week ahead looks good: Rain on and off through the week, with mixed clouds and sun breaks, and very low altitude freezing levels in the mountains. The rivers have gained a little in flows recently but are in very good shape, and they should remain so all week ahead. I like it when we have these conditions over an extended time. Looking forward to my trips this week, tying some new flies, checking my knots. MMmmm...
Winter at it's best. We have had a very mild, unusually dry season so far. And yet we have about 150% snow pack in the Olympic Mountains now anyway. This week the rain and freezing levels will build up more of that snow, which our juvenile salmon and steelhead will need all summer ahead. It is all about the flows. And right now we have got the river flows that fly fishermen, and migrating wild winter steelhead need. If you want to swing flies for steelhead here with me, now is the time! 

Be Here Now

Dress warmly, in layers, and put on your raingear and Be Here Now!
