The first month produced over 400 fish to the four rods. We have had some big ones this season, few over twenty and many over ten lbs. This nice picture is from Matt Harris www.mattharrisflyfishing.com who fished with us and did very well. The last afternoon Matt caught 10 fish ranging from five to seventeen pounds.
September was very productive on our beats. The last day of the season was September 15th and those fifteen days of September ended up being some of the best days of the summer.

Khuong Le and friends fished with us for three days with two rods and did very well despite the cold. They caught 15 fish and lost several. The winter is still refusing to leave, the temperature is still below zero during the night and until 10 am, so frozen reels and lines is a common […]
The first group of the season fished for three days and landed 60 Brown trout. After a rather slow first day the fishing picked up and ended with a 30 fish day. Some very big ones were lost, couple of fish emptied the reels and left the anglers in tears. But some very nice fish […]
