October fishing report

DSC03757It doesn’t look like the St.Croix because it’s the Clearwater River in Idaho. After the busiest season in a decade I stopped guiding in October, partially as a result of the government shutdown, and visited two of the west’s most classic Steelhead Rivers, the Deschutes and Clearwater. I’m absolutely passonate about capturing these fish on a swung fly cast with a two handed fly rod.
