The Season is Underway!

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve posted a lodge report on our website. We got sidetracked with Facebook postings.  Here is our first report for the 2013 season and it’s all good!

First, let me say, if you can travel in the near future, call us or email right away! This appears to be one of those years that early-mid June is going to be fantastic and we have plenty of availability. We never know when a heavy, or late, spring runoff is going to have us blown out in early June, so we hold off on booking those dates. If we have an early runoff, like this year, not only do we have good water in early-mid June, but we usually have a great Salmon Fly hatch. The Salmon Flies should start coming off any day-and water flows and temps are perfect. Because of this recent development, we have started booking those early to mid June dates vigorously and wanted to give everyone a shot at it while it lasts. With the exception of a one room cancellation July 3-5, we have been booked solid from June 22th through July 19th for a long time. This early runoff has made for a fantastic fishing opportunity, right now.

On other news, we had a very good April, with a good Skwala hatch, PMDs and Gray Drakes. The weather, for the most part, was pleasant. We did deal with some early runoff, but it didn’t keep our guests from putting big trout in the net. Most everyone who was out this April is coming back next year. And, at the Orvis Guide Rendezvous in April, we were recognized as a finalist in the Orvis Fly Fishing Lodge of the Year competition. This is because of the support from all of you who have been our guests in the past. Thank you.

We are ready for our summer season and looking forward to a fantastic year. We hope you will be joining us.
