FISHING REPORT: Thursday July 10, 2014
     Steelhead in the Columbia are now at respectable numbers. Our catch continues to improve daily. We use sporting tackle and the lighter gear makes the catching most enjoyable. Bass fishing in the John Day arm and the John Day River has been tremendous. We are the longest running John Day River Outfitter and are now booking day and overnight Fall Steelhead Fly & Gear Fishing trips. Some of our guests have landed over 50 Steelhead a a day Fly Fishing. This is the largest return of hard biting fly chasing native Steelhead in the Columbia Basin.
