Halloween On The Rise!

Enjoy your Halloween weekend and remember to watchout for all those Kid's running around. Hopefully by this weekend we'll start to thaw out a bit and melt all of this snow we've been getting lately. Don't forget to remember the most important part about Halloween, no it's not your costume design, nope it's not how much candy you can steal from your kids, nope it's not how many parties you can get to in one's to be weary of strange vehicles giving away free candy :)

Global Warning....Nahhhhh Just An Early Dusting

Halloween Snowfall In The Rockies
More Reports Here

After encountering a whiteout driving home from fishing South Park on Sunday, I was the last man "idiot" standing on the river. I now regret staying that late despite a few big fish that gave me the runaround. Nothing like a 2 hour drive taking 4 hours while driving in a snow storm to realize that the days on the water without my goretex Simms jacket are over. Forecasters say that this is the biggest October storm in 12 years, if that's any indication on how this winter goes Ski resorts are going to be very happy this ski season!

Wednesday's Snowfall safe out there and enjoy that Flake hatch!

Georgia Bass and Minnesota Sturgeon

Whether It's Big Bass On a Golf Course or Sturgeon in Brackish Water You're After, I'm All Ears

It's a boring Wednesday and I'm working another long day, all I want to do is to talk a little fishing and to see how the fishing's been in Minnesota lately so I call my Pal Clark. Wouldn't you know it I get his voice mail saying he's out of the office again....hmmmm I wonder where's he's at. Rough life being a Real Estate broker and my only guess is that he's out fishing again to beat working. Two days later I get the email full of pictures of nice Sturgeon, which all I can do is to inquire Where, When, How and What??? He calls me back to tell me about an undisclosed area (I'm sworn to secrecy) he's been sturgeon fishing a bunch lately since trout season is closed and all I can say is, when can I get on a few of those pigs! Growing up in Georgia we also had a few flying Sturgeon down South that were of the airborne strain that would fly over your boat as you floated down the Suwannee, but nothing like this. In fact these are relatively small when compared to the monsters I've seen coming from Hell's Canyon Idaho and in the Pacific Northwest, but nonetheless I wouldn't complain catching one. Now all he has to do is to call my other buddy Cobos who also lives in Minny, to get out on a few since he's the exception to these guys, he's the token 60 hour a week worker that needs to get our more than anyone.

My other Pal is also a hard working self employed fishing junkie...see a pattern and why I'm also self employed! Each weekend I call my buddy Don to see which golf course he's hacking away at and which water he's fishing. This weekend was no exception, seeing how his Auburn Tigers are choking this year there's no excuse not to be out around Atlanta enjoying some outdoor interest. I guess since he was short on time he decided to combine the two of golf and fishing into one with the final tally being a good one! Some nice 6-8lb bass caught on Atlanta's Piedmont driving club, nothing like catching big bass while people are yelling Fooooooooooouuuuuuur in the background. Nice going Donny B and save a few for me on my next trip back home.

FFR Fly Fishing Retail Show Making a Move, AAFTA Members Make a Change

It's no secret that the FFR show has had some problems, maybe even some uncertainty as to what they should do with the event. After talking to a few companies and Reps this year at the 2009 FFR show, it was apparent that many wanted to see a change or find another venue to move this to in order to spur on some sort of change for the better.

Recently TroutUnderground had some great insight as to what's going on and what might be instore for this yearly gathering of fishing insiders.

Taylor River Fishing..Hawg Trough Delight!

Sight Fishing on The Taylor River
Trip Report Here

What is about the words "Hawg Trough" that brings a smile to most of my fishing buddies? I think it's due to the fact that there are more big fish in the this one area than anywhere in the country I can think of. Okay, maybe the Middle Kenai perhaps, but for sheer numbers and jaw dropping fish, this place is hard to beat! We had a great weekend up in the Taylor Park area this Fall and I love making this trek a few times a year. I was with a few fishing Pals this weekend looking to fish for some beasty's,enjoy ourselves and hopefully not freeze from Taylor Park's notorious cold weather at night camping. Fishing Pals Brian Yamauchi, Todd Peppin, Casey, Travis, Craig and a few others tagged along for some fun.

We didn't get to fish together as much I wanted to since so much water around here to choose from -which is a very good problem to have! A few of the guys wanted to try their luck at some Gunnison Koky's, they haven't caught some before and since I just returned from Alaska catching Koky's big brother, the Sockeye, I was set for some Big trout. Friend Greg Furimsky from Crested Butte's Angling Bookstore joined the guys as well as local Willowfly guide Patrick Duke for some trout action.

It's Fall in the Rockies and all I can think about are big browns and planning my next trip, where would I like to be?

Fall Steelhead Fishing! From Michigan To Ontario

Fall Steelhead Locations
Michigan Area
One of my personal favorites, okay BC is still on the list but will get there one of these days!
Michigan is truely a unique place, it has many great rivers that steelhead swim freely for short time periods throughout their lives. Many out there claim that steelhead to be one of the highly regarded freshwater fish to chase, they can challenge the fly fishers sanity, reels, hooks and angling skills.

Steelhead make their way in the rivers in the fall to chow and in the spring to spawn so they are definitely in the go. Alot of the fall fish -holdover or stay, in the rivers throughout the chilly months of winter and are usually the first to spawn in the spring. Many that either don't come in very far or don't run at all in the fall, make their way to the pier heads of lake Michigan come early spring to head up their natal rivers.

The top rivers in Michigan for steelhead include the Manistee, Muskegon river and Pere Marquette river. These rivers offer a unique appearance, landscape, water flows and so much more.

Michigan's majic time in Autumn is right after the majority of the fall salmon have already spawned, which usually falls around October through mid-late December, give or take a few weeks. Spring time fish arrive around early March and are available to the fly fisher through late May. A plus to Michigan's fly fisherman whom target steelhead is that, opposite to that of it's cousin the salmon, is that not all steelhead die after spawning. Steelehad provide a great "drop back fishing" while they navigate their way back to lake Michigan after successfully spawning.

Ontario Areas
So you want to fish for steelhead in the Ontario area? How about a "Grand Trip?"

The large steelhead trout from here can very from 15 to 30 inches in length with their weight and strength in need of very large tippets! The Wild runs and pole-bending hurtles makes this rainbow trout a hearty delight. A great vantage area for viewing steelhead pods is along Whiteman’s Creek just above the Grand River section. This stretch is now posted and permission must be gained from the Five Oaks Christian Centre so make sure.

The Grand River has won many conservation awards as well. It has almost 200 shoreline miles and is the largest river in Southern Ontario. It is one hour from Toronto or London with the 401 and 403 highways providing easy access. This is a unique river because it has all the amenities nearby within a wilderness setting. A fisherman can choose to float fish for steelhead or fly fish… wade or drift… spend the day or stay a night. Whatever the choice, steelhead fishing on the Grand River is a must for everyone to fish.

Lake Ontario (NY) Area Rivers

Patagonia Fly Fishing Big Trout, Vacations, Lake District, Lodging and Best Guides!

Contact Fly Fish Addiction and Book Your Trip Today!
Click Here for some Great deals, discounts and Patagonia News

It combines impressive mountains ranges, active volcanoes, dense forest with millenarian trees, beautiful lakes and breathtaking glaciers to make it one of the last great wildernesses on the planet. Here are a few reasons why you should visit Patagonia:

Trekking: without doubt Patagonia is a true paradise for trekking, there are routes for everyone tastes. Every national park has well-marked routes with incredible landscapes and different degrees of difficulty. For the most daring trekkers long trans-andean crossings and hiking over the continental ice sheet are a must.

Animal sea life: Peninsula de Valdez is must-see place for lovers of wildlife. It contains the largest colony of elephant seals on the world, and it is an important gathering point for whales, penguins, and a multitude of seabirds.

Fly Fishing: Patagonia is a real outstanding place for the capture of trouts. It has an ideal temperature for Salmons, excellent waters and a wide variety of rivers and lakes to allow all fly-casting practices. Two outstanding places to visit are Junin de los Andes a town in the Neuquen province in the north part of Patagonia and Rio Grande in Tierra del Fuego. In Junin de los Andes, the Malleo River has plenty of rainbow trouts during the entire season, but it is at the end of March when things become interesting. Big brown trouts enter the Chimehuin River from the Huechulafquen Lake, an event that no fly fisherman wants to lose. Rio Grande is a fishing place of worldwide fame for the capture of big sea trouts.

Alpinism: It is true that Patagonia doesn't have high mountains ranges, but it counts with several of the most beautiful and challenging peaks on the world. Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre in Argentina and Las Torres and los Cuernos del Paine in Chile are some of the reasons that climbers from all over the world have for traveling to this marvelous place.

Conclusion: no traveler interested in adventure that wants to enjoy nature at its best should miss the opportunity of experience Patagonia when traveling to Argentina.

Are You Hooked?

"Hooked" The New NatGeo Fishing Show

"Hooked," is a popular show that is catching on with many of my fishing Pals as of late! I haven't missed one yet and can't wait for the next one. Hosted by aquatic ecologist Zeb Hogan, the series simultaneously explores how different cultures approach fishing (and underwater conservation) while highlighting the most dramatic catches. This is not your average fishing show...not even close, this show goes after Monster catches and the strangest fish species you will ever encounter. Episodes range from Congo's Tigerfish, Mongolian Taimen to monster Sharks in San Diego. Definitely worth checking out and saving on that TIVO

Black Canyon of The Gunnison Fall Fishing Weekend

Head To The Gunnison Gorge Area For An Amazing Autumn Experience
Link To Our Trip Here

It’s hard to beat spending time in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison during the Fall. Outside of the San Juan’s, this has to be one of my favorite areas for sure. Very few crowds out on the water, remoteness, incredible weather and if you wanted to catch 30 fish, it’s not that very hard to do. Big fish are not as prevalent but when you’re there big fish, or any fish is that last thing you’re worried about with all of this great scenery.


You can have a good day, great day or an incredible day out on the Gunnison. Now whether that means catching 30 fish, or simply sittung back teo relax the spectacular scenery, either one bodes well for me. I think for most fisherman here, you can catch some nice fish, overall nothing huge but you can catch quite a few. Or one can sit back and marvel the granduer or some an amazing place is what brings me back here year after year.

Florida Fly Fishing October Reports

Florida Fishing Heats Up In October

With all of this Chatter lately about Fall fishing around the Rockiesfor Browns, plenty of my Saltwater friends are scratching their heads wondering when I'm going to talk about Saltwater again. Yes, Saltwater is my passion for sure, but this one period of the year in the Rockies, nothing comes close. Here's some updated Florida Saltwater news since I've gotten a few reports from my Guide friends down there recently. Come November I'll be in the Tampa area Redfishing so hopefully I'll have a few reports myself for everyone!

Florida Bay in Fall! - Had a chance to get out in Florida Bay with my pal Capt. Nick Angelo originally from South Fla whp now lives and guides in the Tampa area! We had a great time fishing the old stomping grounds. It was our first trip out in Flamingo together in a few y more...Capt. Joe Costadura - Flamingo

Inshore/ offshore - The lagoon is still producing some good trout and the reds are scattered through out the lagoon flats in a spawning mode. You will see the schools doing some swimming in circles and rolling on their sides. My last charter was going to fish with me more...Capt. Joe Porcelli - Mosquito Lagoon

Capt Pete Greenan -Sarasota Area Down To Boca Grande
Outstanding fishing this week in Boca Grande was highlighted by large snook, baby tarpon and an abundance of seatrout. There is no better time of the year than the fall on Florida's west coast. Unusually high tides in the morning produced strong water movement as the days went on. Baitfish shoals grew larger and the fish fed aggressively. Dusty Sprague and I were able to jump four little tarpon in the deep backcountry on Thursday and then managed several snook along the mangroves. All were taken on a modified Gartside Gurgler pattern. Switching to a submerged fly because of the bright sun, we caught several seatrout in just a few minutes to finish up a fun and exciting day.

Summer returns to Tampa Bay - Tampa Bay is hot! Both the weather and the fishing action. Wednesday morning on the was hot and humid; the only thing hotter was the Bonita action. Most Captains have a circle of other Captains whom they share information with. It's this type of net more...Capt. Steven Markovich - Tampa Bay

My normal trips are in the saltwater marshes and creeks, usually miles from any type of development. Northeast Florida h more...Capt. Ron Schurr - Jacksonville

Ton of Tarpon - A beautiful September to remember this year so far with everyday being more beautiful than the day before it seems, calm mornings that lead into sunny humid and hot days with some showers around to cool of the fishing a little! Florida Bay is just more...Capt. Jim Hale - Flamingo

Big Taimen in Mongolia! Dr. Fred Strikes Again

In Search of Monster Taimen Look No Further Than The Far Reaches of Mongolia

My fellow Denver fishing Pal and often drinking partner, Dr. Fred Miller, was off on another adventure and this one was unlike all the others he's been on before. Dr. Fred has been to just about as many places as anyone I know and just when I thought I had him beat with a Patagonia trip year before last, he one upped me and already had his booked a few months before mine!

Having talked with Jeff Currier about his last trip there I knew this was a place I wanted to visit, now it's just a matter of time, lot's of luck and oh yeah, a bank account much different than the one I have now! Dr. Fred and another friend of mine Todd Fehr, also tagged along for this amazing trip and I know I'll be hearing these big fish stories for years to come. These Two guys fish a bunch together and we fish much of the same water. They both got me hooked on Tarpon fishing in Boca Grande and I still can't wait to meet them down there for some fun as well the next few years.

Todd with a Sweet One

Mongolia Taimen Fishing is an exceptional adventure fishing destination: a land of rolling steppes, rugged mountains, and verdant forest, inhabited by hardy, hospitable nomads. The wild rivers teem with fish; Grayling, Lenok Trout, and the legendary Taimen, a mighty salmonid that grows to monstrous proportions.

Just another day in the office for Dr. Fred

Mongolia's rivers are a fly-fisherman's dream destination - clear water, abundant fish, tranquil fishing, and stunning surroundings. Experience the excitement of catching a mighty Taimen on a dry-fly. Enjoy exquisite dry-fly fishing for Lenok and Grayling.

Imaging wading clear cliff fringed pools and casting a mouse fly to metre-long sighted taimen - feel the anticipation as you retrieve, then the surge of adrenalin as the Taimen explodes out of the water to take the fly before a making reel screaming run!

The average sized Taimen are around 28 to 30 inches long (70 - 80 cm) and 10 to 12 lbs. There will be many opportunities at trophy Taimen over 40 inches (100 cm).

to explore in a stunning river valley and canyon. The river has fantastic wading with a rocky or gravel bed, lots of interest and structure, and many cliffs and Taimen pools.

Fall Big Brown Trout Fishing, Where Are They and How To Catch Them

Leapoard Browns, Chilly Weather, Big Fat Streamers and Fewer Crowds is What I'm Talking About

What is it about this time of year that get's ones adrenaline going with the thought of Big, Fat, beasty Brownies chasing 12" streamers for that one monster whack! I know I can't wait and in fact could care less about fishing all Summer when in comparison to what the Fall brings.

These last few weekends I have been completely spoiled and fortunate to travel in search of big browns. Any luck? Well I've had some shots but still think it's a tad -no pun, too early for some of the big boys to come out to play quite yet. When is the perfect time to chase them you ask? That can vary greatly and you must follow many areas of timing to get that one right. A few factors I look at are the season, a nice window from the 1st of October to Mid November for the Rockies. Why this time if year? It's due to browns which are are fall spawners and by November they are in a crazy mood. Browns that are near or have just finished spawning are extremely territorial and yep, aggressive. When targeting them you have to pay attention to any influx in flow changes, up a little or down some can really alter Brown trout movement and change your plans for fishing. Also what is the weather doing, is it sunny, cloudy, snowing or raining? Those also play important roles. What about Moon phases, yep..Crowds of people targeting them over and over. What about the temperature of the water yep. See where I'm getting at!

There are so many areas you need to concentrate on that for the average person I just tell people to relate it to golf. Just go when you can and see what happens. If you can target it much more thoroughly with your timing, than all the better, the more time on the water the better chance of course you'll have to run across a nice Brown.

Don't forget to rule out fishing at night time. Yes they do lurk in the depths at dusk and can get busy once that sun goes down so don't forget to check that out as well. I was on a trip to the Taylor River recently and fishing from 8pm-Midnight and let's just say that after landing a nice brown 15 minutes into my night I was "Hooked"

Rocky Mountain Park Fishing in The Fall!

Fall Brookie Fishing in RMNP, What More Could You Want
Link To More Pictures from our Trip

What do I do when I get a call from some family friend's that are coming to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in RMNP and want a tour from a local guide? Well I jump at the chance to head up to Rocky Mtn National Park days after returning from Alaska to catch up with some friends, a chance to take in some outstanding Fall foilage and yes, you guessed fish a bit!

The next question was: what size fish do you want to catch, how far do you want to walk or drive, what species of trout and how soon can we get on the water. Mr Rhodes is not your typical fisherman, he dwarfs me in his yearly fishing days with a "modest 200+" days out a year since he is retired, lives on the water down south and knows how to fish. Those are the types of people I want to fish with. We lucked out with perfect weather, a number of gorgeous brookies on the fly and animal sightings everywhere.

If you head up that way make sure you look up the YMCA of the Rockies for some sweet accomodations. BB is a former director of the YMCA down in Georgia and knows how well they treat their guests, and that they did. My 1st visit to this amazing place and with a few thousand acres of land, every amentity one would ever need is at your disposal. They have over 250 cabins to choose from all tucked away in the hills and what better place to wake up, have a cup of jo and notice a herd of Elk out on your front porch! Their rates are very modest also so look em up when heading up that way.


We had a blast fishing a few hot spot lakes where not only did we catch some colorful Brookies but we also had a few shot's at some beasty 20" Trout as well that showed up from time to time but no takers. The Big Thompson also proved to be enjoyable but due to high flows it did make things a somewhat challenging. For more information on fishing RMNP checkout my other threads HERE for more info on your next outing to the Park.
