Winter Steelheading In Full Swing

If there wasn’t any doubt already, winter is in full swing and hit us hard. A ton of rain and cold temps kicked us right out of fall in a hurry. Before the record rainfall, we were hitting pods of winter steelhead in most all of the local rivers on a regular basis. Now that we’re almost into the new year, once the rivers get back in shape, I would expect some pretty great fishing. Many of us who own boats will get to re-learn our favorite sections of river as most of the waters around us have changed with the flooding. If you’re floating soon, be careful and aware, even if you’ve floated that section 100 times, most likely, everything’s going look and row a lot different than you’re used to. We look forward to starting the new year with you and hope you get time to find some water to cast in very soon.   

Winter Weather Notice

We like to consider ourselves fairly tough when it comes to dealing with all the weather mother nature throws us. We have all stayed out on the river longer than we probably should have a time or two, but when it comes to opening the store in freezing rain and/or snow, our crews safety means more to us than the cash register making noise. On the rare days when we do get a dose of frozen stuff on the roads in the Portland/Metro, please give us a call before you come out to make sure we are open. If it turns out we are closed when you need us, please accept our apologies in advance. Thank you 503-252-1529
