What a difference a week made. Last friday we are freezing our tail end's off and looking at our first set of consecutive days of winter below the freezing mark, plus some good amounts of snow around Sisters, Camp Sherman and even down to Maupin.

Perhaps winter finally arrived today! It started snowing and is pretty cold today. The meteorologists are saying we could get 20 inches or more here in Sisters from today through Sunday, with cold temps from the Polar Vortex just hitting our region a bit (nothing like Montana and the Mid-West). I personally think the fishing … Continue reading Weather Update and Fishing predictions 2/11/21

So far, we haven't … Continue reading Thanksgiving time fishing outlook 11/25/20
It's just turned dark here in Sisters and it's raining, mixed with few snow flakes. While that seems horrible, I am warm and fulfilled with happiness at how things are going in life, and at the shop. Moments ago I got to go out and cast new streamer rods with the co-owner of Echo, Mr … Continue reading November 9th 2020 fishing report
Happy Halloween and the end of the general Trout Season! It's crazy to think of all the great days we've had since the general opener on April 22nd.
