What's New

  • I have added current fishing reports to the Fishing Report pages. The information comes from fly shops and other sources. In general, these are updated twice a month (or so). As always, the river levels, etc., are updated hourly.
  • I am working on new photos for the standard flies. The steelhead flies are completed, and dry flies and wet flies should be done by the end of November.
  • Steelhead fly pages have been slightly reformatted to make them work better on mobile devices.

Coming up:

  • Finish photos of dry flies and wet flies.

Tight lines,
Your Uncle Fuzzy (aka Scott Richmond)
