Wheeew, A lot has happened since last month! I have been very busy, Guiding locally, competing in casting competitions in Colorado, and even got a little play time in Florida for some big Tarpon! Best of all… I have my first Nephew! My Brother Scott, and his wife Taryn brought a healthy 8lber (lol) into the family! This is baby Ty DOUGLAS MCFALL

I have been staying busy guiding our local waters in the area spending most of my time bouncing between the East Walker River, Crowley Lake, Lower Owens River and of course, Hot Creek! All waters listed above are fishing incredibly good as we make this transition into summer, well, kinda. Lately we have been experiencing afternoon thunderstorms with rain almost everyday for the past three weeks! But our local weatherman said a change is on it’s way next week for the better.

Here is Luc’s Brother Jules and I with a big rainbow he got while fishing the Private water on the E.W.

The Walker has been fishing so well largely in-part by the rich insect life and prolific hatches we have been experiencing. Here, you see my hand covered in Midge larva after pulling a branch out of the water.

Everything from small midges, to Pale Morning Duns, to Blue Winged Olives, to little yellow Stones, to various types of caddis, and the trout our eating machines!

Oops! There is evidence of… well…..they don’t always eat tiny Midges………….

Jack Backed up that big Brown on the Dry with a huge Rainbow on the Dry that afternoon!

Gotta love the private water that I’m licensed to guide! Fish like this and not another soul around

Here is Ruben on his first day of fly fishing ever! Dave Neal (top local guide) and I had Ruben, his Father, Grandfather and his younger sister, on the Lower Owens today. All fly fishing for their first time, we all had a ball! They were quick learners, great company and most of all… fishy!!! Together the 4 of them caught and released 25 beautiful wild Browns in a few hours of fishing!
