  • Monster Rainbow


    Russ with the big rainbow of the trip. A 24 inch 6-7 lb monster. Keep in mind Russ is an ex-college lineman. Those are meat paws.

  • Fish Taco Tuesday


    A new float trip tradition. Fish taco Tuesdays. In this case they were of the Dolly Varden variety.

  • Show us the fin!


    A 20 inch class grayling. The group landed lots of these in the upper river. Big grayling were everywhere during the first half of the trip.

  • Here Dolly, Dolly.


    It's fun to feel the wiggle with all Dolly Varden, but once they get over 24" they're really fun! We were lucky enough to hook lots of 24-28" fish

  • An afternoon fishing break


    We caught some marginal weather early and late in the trip, but mid-week was absolutely stellar.

  • Cha Ching... Silver in the bank.


    We put the light rods away after day 4 and turned our attention to chasing early lower river silvers. We were not disappointed.

  • Thank you Dolly, may I have another?


    A 28 inch Dolly Varden. Nothing like a steelhead size fish on a four weight.

  • Relaxing at Sunset, Life is good.


    We've done a lot of these trips over the years and this one was one of the best. A true epic journey.
