Winter steelhead kick off.

Starting to spend more time on our local winter steelhead river, the Sandy, guiding. My bookings are looking solid through March. I have some limited space left. The time is now if you would like to get out a day or two with me this winter during prime time.

Tips to help you have the best opportunity at success on a guided trip with us:
Watch the water levels for the best fishing. I have the best success when I am able to be flexible with my calendar as it relates to the changing conditions.
When the river has been stable and running below 2000 c.f.s. for more than a week the fish are stale and not too aggressive to the fly. They tend to hunker down in the deepest pools and these conditions are by far the hardest to find success in.
When the rains come, and the freezing level goes up above 4000 feet in elevation, the river swells with warmer and turbid waters. This not only brings fresh Steelhead it also moves those stale fish into the runs and perfect fly swinging water.  This is the time to get ready, give me a call, and book a date with the best forecasting we have to hit the prime conditions. When the water starts to drop into shape we have an outstanding history of good results with catching Winter Steelhead on the swung fly!
It is always a good idea to book a date based on the prime run timing. February through May fits this schedule. We will always stay in communication in the weeks before our trip takes place. If conditions look to be unfavorable we will revise and come up with a plan to reschedule at a better date with no penalty to you. 

My goal is to give you the best opportunity to learn, have success, and enjoy a prime date on this magnificent river!
