From Matt Ramsey, who guides on the Willamette River:

“Had a great time fishing on the Willamette with Dan Kahn the other day. Would you please forward his shots to him. Fishing on the Willamette is very good right now. We’re running into a couple of steelhead each day and the trout action is great. Yesterday my dude got 3 including one on an October Caddis dry. Here are some open dates remaining on the calendar:

Oct 19, 25, 26, 31

Tight Lines!

Thanks Matt!

From Pierce Clegg at Babine Norlakes Lodge:

“Hello all…

Great week, great anglers, new guests too which was fun plus one harp player, Dr. Buz Bricca, and a couple of guitar players so a couple of great campfire jams, late nights, slow mornings…you know the story. The river was continually dropping and very clear which made for spotting lots of steelhead although at times they were hard to catch. Spotted an absolutely huge buck somewhere between mid thirties to forty pounds…Franco Sirtori may have hooked it and with only three wraps left on the spool, well good bye steelhead.

Some dry line action but most were favouring various tips, of course, but the Skagit Extreme line continues to fish well and especially cast well. The fall colors are late this season so the river looks neon with color…see second photo. The first photo is Dave Mitchell with a fat buck landed at Beaver Flats. Still can’t fish Rude Awakening due to heavy flows but Dave was game to try it with me and we both thought better of it after a few casts.

Babine Steelhead Lodge pulled their last guests today so the next four weeks of our season will be extra special with so much river to fish…we have two openings; Oct 19-25 and Oct 26 to Nov 1.

Nick Anderson was the lucky angler of the week to land a 25 pound buck…I’ll have a photo of it in next week’s report. It’s always exciting to see the big fish in the river, and even more exciting to hook one…most of the big ones just win the battle so each week is full of those sorts of stories.

The steelhead are starting to porpoise, roll and play…but this last week some of the anglers thought they were just flipping us off for trying to catch them when they didn’t want to bite…lots of taps, bumps, grabs and plucks but no magic bullet fly to convince them to take. Lots of moving fish in the last few days as well so next week will be a new week with new fish and new excitement. The snow is not far away but the camp grounds are muddy from melting snow flakes and cold drizzle…kind of like steelhead fall weather to some and crazy to others.

Probably the best news is a good die off of wild stock sockeye that spawn just above the weir…there are lots of carcasses, much more than I have witnessed in years so the bears are showing up and all fish and wildlife are enjoying the fruits of a salmon life cycle so precious to the overall eco system. Darren snuck up on a 1000 plus pound Grizzly at Boat Wreck…there are many signs that the bears are taking advantage of the dead and near dead salmon…so many rocks have the bear paw, toe and claw marks so we know we are on a wild river. A dead bald eagle was found at Joe’s Shoot…most likely killed by another eagle as we can see the constant aerial battles especially on those cold windy days when they like to fly high and soar.”

Can’t wait to see what happens next. – Pierce

Thanks Pierce!

I just spoke to Erik Aune, co-owner of North Platte Lodge in Wyoming. The North Platte Lodge guides are currently enjoying some outstanding fishing right now and expect this to continue through the rest of October. The big brown trout are trying to bulk up in preparation for spawning and all fish in the river seem to be getting ready for winter, i.e. eating like crazy! Although the most productive fishing is with a streamer right now, most days still have a dry fly window and streamers are producing the biggest brown trout of the year.

We have good availability at the lodge through October, so give Charles a call at 800-552-2729 if you’re interested in chasing some trophy trout this month!

This picture was just sent in from friends who did a trip in Alaska. They caught a rainbow on a Morrish Mouse. While releasing the bow the fish puked up a natural mouse. I can see why the fish fell for the Morrish Mouse.
