The quick and wet release of a wild steelhead on the O.P. from this past week, must keep these fish completely submerged if they are to breathe.  Let us know if we can help you dial in your spey casting and find yourself attached to one of these this year, we would love to do both for you.

A little rain today will make for a terrific Sept. on the smaller streams.  A brief influx of cool fresh water will give the trout a bit of a respite from the warm water and invigorate and energize them.  Summer almost being over will also relieve much of the pressure they have endured for the past few months making sojourns into the mountains that much more enjoyable with fewer anglers…not that there are many in most of these places anyway.

Hank the dog looks down at a nice SRC from a South Sound Beach.  Fish are still actively feeding on quite a few beaches in the area, but if they aren’t eating what you are throwing try dropping down a few sizes in your fly selection.  Smaller flies have had better results over the last few weeks, although several of the standard patterns have produced fish as well.  Greater numbers of bait fish of various types should start showing up relatively soon as well.

There’s a reason Puget Sound keeps appearing on this “Reports” feed:  the fish are going nuts out there right now.  3 beaches fished in the span of 4 hours this morning and all of them produced cutthroat, including this 17-18 incher.  Pick a beach, and more likely than not you’ll find some fish.
