A great day on the Dream Stream, March10th,2018

  The famed dream stream is where dreams can be made, depending on the year, flows, and fish.  This last weekend showed what the "Dream" can produce.
   Checkout these brutes that clients landed. For about 2 hours, I was constantly netting fish.

Alaska Trips filling fast 2018

As many of us are planning for the summer months, Alaska is on everyones brain. I am going to host Anglers from July 23-August 2nd.  If plans have you in AK propr to July 23rd, and you want a salmon or trout trip, let me know. 
   I also have another trip out July 7-12 so either end of that trip works for guiding as well.

Colorado Rivers still fishing well

The summer is waning and fall river conditions are the norm right now.  The fishing is still hot so call for an opening time with me. If you want to fish numbers we can dip into the canyon.  If you like bigger fish the dream stream is pretty good right now for bows, cuts, and browns. 
Email me at or call if you have my number.
Guiding is slowing down but the fishing is still hot!

Tired of broken fly rods

If you are like me, then you have seen your fair share of broken rods, and most of them aren't from a big fish snapping it in half.  Car doors, tires, stepped on, run over and more.  This usually happens after you take the rod out of a secure holder.  To battle this issue, I teamed up with a buddy and we came up with an invention that addresses it, THE SPORT VALET!
Check it out: SPORT VALET We are launching on kickstarter Sunday Nov. 1st.  If you want one before anybody else, check it out.

Alaska 2015

  This year I have the pleasure to host/guide 5 guys from all over the U.S.  We leave either Denver, Colorado Springs, and New York on the 22nd of July and all converge in Anchorage.  From there we are renting a truck from ABC rental and heading to down to my buddy Kevin's tower cabin.  We call it the tower because he built it to model a fire lookout tower. It's amazing.  On day one, we will discover what the salmon are doing in the upper river, head down to the confluence of the Russian and Kenai rivers, or maybe head to the lower river. New this year is another addition to our fleet of boats.  Now I have the choice between a willie 17', Willie 20', or the jet boat.
   After we get our fish boxes filled with salmon, we will hunt down some big rainbows.  Fires have closed a section of River that have some truly enormous fish known as the dunes and rainbow alley.  With the fire almost 100% contained, I am hoping they reopen this section and get the guys on some huge Bows.
   To wrap up our 8 day adventure, I have contacted good friend Capt. Ron for 2 days of halibut fishing down in Anchor point, AK.  If the seas are under 4 footers, we'll be out for easy "butt" limits on the 27th and 28th.
  This is an adventure of a lifetime for most of these guys.  I can't wait to see their faces as they tie into a different class of fish in Alaska. Ones that will hopefully make lots of memories, fish tales, and happy fisherman.

Rivers coming down in Colorado, FINALLY

Mid July marks the run off period ending in Colorado, and usually the fishing picks up again.  Most of the S. Platte, the rivers I guide on, have been 6-7 times higher than usual for June and this time of year.  But recently they have calmed down to fishable levels.  So lets go fishing!!!  Give me a call or email me to set up a float trip or wade fishing trip.

Colorado Winter fishing

Well I finally saw some blue wing olives for the first time today.  This signals the end of small tiny size 26's flies and will allow consistent fishing ,weather permitting.  As good as the South Platte fishes during this time, you may also wish to concentrate on the Ark below the dam and also hungry browns throughout the drainage.  What I love about the BWO's are the ability to fish this hatch below,subsurface, and on top appealing to all angler methods.  So get out and fish today.  Or give me a call for either a wade in trip or a float trip on my boat.
