We’ve had a great start to the season this week between thoroughly enjoyable clients to fishing that has been producing well. The weather, though not like it was this spring, has been holding and it’s been fairly mild out there for us. The Rainbow trout and Dolly Varden has been enjoyable and much like we’d expect this time of year. And of course what most people are interesting in is the sockeye and they have been appearing in steady numbers. The count as of now according to the Russian RIver Weir is 4,967. We have had very happy clients going home with some fresh sockeye and they’ve had a great time getting the opportunity to dance with some of these powerful fish on the ends of their rods. There have been some big beautiful salmon caught, looking more like the second run sockeye then the typical little silver bullet the first run traditionally yields.
Here’s a returning client we had to opportunity to get out on the water again this year. Brian brought his dad and boys down for a great day of fishing (and catching!). Thanks for joining us again!
It’s finally here! We have all worked long and hard to get everything ready on our end so that we can get out there and do what we love to do! And today, we are on the water doing just that.
Our first run sockeye have already started coming in and are into the Russian River already. We are having some luck out there catching then on the Kenai today though you have be willing to put in your time. They are the beautiful little silver bullets we love to see though.
Trout fishing is open of course today though I don’t have a report back on that yet I’m sure after the break the river has seen that too should be great. More on that later when the boats come off the river.
This is what we love to see!
