Diane and I have had a busy spring/summer this year, and as we move into the monsoon season in the Northwest, we thought we would recap what we’ve been up to. We continued fishing for kokanee during the months of April and into May with good success.. We are still learning this fishery, next spring will be better…
Kokanee- Lake Merwin
In the cooler it went!
We also did a little sturgeon fishing, this was the last year for keeping sturgeon, so we made the best of it…
Abby waiting for the bite
It didn’t take long!

A great fish for Diane

Thanks Mama for taking me fishing today!
I’ll guard the fish!
Next up, a great trip to the San Juan’s with our best friends Darin and Karin for ling cod and shrimp… Some of the best times of our lives are spent here.

A great day’s fishing!
As we move into the fall and winter season, there are always more to do and catch. Winter kings, steelhead, and silvers to name a few. It has been a wonderful year so far, filled with love, adventure, and great times fishing. ….
