Hello fellow fly flickers. It’s that time of year again. Hot, crowded, low water and ready for some time off! Yikes! Did I say that out loud? I guess I just can’t stop thinking about STEELHEAD!!! I’ll get back to that.

All in all, the fishing has been very good on certain waters. The main two body’s of water I have been focusing on is the Upper Owens River and Crowley Lake. These continue to be the most productive fisheries in the area as is usual at this time of year. Here are a few pic’s of some biggie’s.

Here is Jean Paquet with his first fish on a fly Rod! Last week my close friend (and fellow guide) Dave Neal, had all four Paquet brothers out on the lake, and what a blast it was! These guys are are so much fun! Down to earth, easy going, real people that can get there fish on! That’s about all I can say after what Dave wrote… No way I could try to top that. http://www.reelmammothadventures.com/ kiss a$$ LOL
Here is Jules Paquet and I with a big boy.
And another for the “little” brother. lol!Calibeatis for breakfast Mr. Monster Rainbow?Rodger and I with Mr. Monster. The damsel hatches are still going strong! Like this guy that swam up to my fly line crawled up on the rod and hatched.Here is Richard casting tiny dry’s on a early high sierra morning on the famous Hot Creek.

Oh ya, we also caught some REALLY nice fish on those tiny drys too!!! Nice Richard!Here is Ron with a GIANT Crowley Bow that screamed waaaayyy into his backing. I love the lake…Here is Eric with another pig!Here’s 14yr old J.T. with a big (18 inch) Hot Creek Ranch bow on the dry! Awesome job J.T.
Way to go Chris! Look at how beautiful this brown is.

We are coming into a nice change at the end of this month. The kids head back to school, the camp grounds empty out, less anglers in your hole, the air starts to get crisp and cool, and the hatches become more consistent.

I also wanted to jump on here and throw out a few changes about this up coming fall. As a lot of you know, I will be guiding Steelhead in Nor Cal on the Trinity River this fall and winter. I have lengthened up my stay a bit longer this year. I will be there from Oct. 10th – Jan.31st. I have a lot of dates on the books already so If you are thinking about coming up now is the time to get your dates booked. My rate is 400.00 per day for one or two anglers. we will be fishing out of my top of the line clakacraft drift boat and sage rods and reels are there for your use if you wish. All you need to do is show up with a big smile in your warm waders and enjoy a beautiful float down a very scenic river.

That’s my quick pitch for now. I’ll be on here with some more info in the next few weeks.

(Really, I will, Jack, )
