It's been a while...

since I have posted any fishing pursuits. Lot's of fishing going on along with family and work. I was kind of surprised that a few actually reached out to me to see if everything was cool. Thank you.

September is a transitional period out here fishing wise. At least for me. Stripers, Steel, Salmon, LM & Smallies, Trout in the high country and in the low valley rivers..Carp are going strong and Tuna are pushing closer all the time. The inshore reef fishing is fantastic light tackle fun and a mariad of fish spiecies on the chew all up and down the coast. There is A LOT of fishing happening with in striking distance.  More than one can actually get dialed on.

I've been feeding Stripers and Bass in between throwing flies off Jetties for Salmon. A few trips to the beach for some surf casting and the Carpin is solid with excellent numbers of fish. Oct-Dec is when the bigger fish opportunities happen so Carp on the fly has taken back seat the last month or so ut I have been checking on them regularly.

Weather ontinues to be dry and hot here and we need a good solid wet winter in the Sierras. I have my fingers crossed.. Anyway, here are a few recent photos and I will get caught up on report's and fishing in general in the next couple of weeks.

Later folks!

Last I heard was the Farmers Almanac said a normal winter this year. Hopefully it's wrong and we'll get a bunch of rain.

I love your photography and it tells the story of your waters well. We also in SW Idaho really need a good snowpack, epic would be better. Let's hope for the best.

David, glad you are doing well. Did you get any salmon hookups off the jetty here in SC? I didn't get down there but heard it was a madhouse. Take care,
Matt

Yes but you Got to pick your days Matt. The back is a poach fest and I won't participate in snagging fish. Casting flies from a skiff outside the jaws is much funner and good! Plus you have options if they aren't there.
