The last couple of weeks have been up and down in regards to catch rates. A lot of traffic on the river combined with unstable flows (extreme low to higher stained water) has caused the bite to be a bit tough. We welcomed the rains this week, but with that we are currently fishing through what we call “tea-stained” water. This happens when the Clearwater river basin is hit with wildfires during the summer. The first few good rains wash the ash into the river turning it black. This phenomena takes awhile to clear, but we expect that to start taking place now as the water has dropped back to normal flows. With that being said our guests have continued to catch some great Steelhead in the Clearwater River, including a 40.5″, 20 pound 5 ounce buck caught last week!
We have plenty of room for you on board our boats. Our captains each carry propane heaters during the cold months, and as always provide hot cooked meals for lunch
