July 12th-15th

Hey Everyone! This past trip was a group mostly from California, with the exception of our new friends Dee and Jess Torres from Washington. We had a large group of wine distributors come and teach us a bit about vino, and Barry Johnson brought a group of his buddies, and this was his ninth time here! The trip started out a bit slow fishing wise, but Dee hauled in a beauty on Smitty’s boat, weighing in at 27lbs on the very first afternoon! We lucked out with a beautiful calm day for burger boating, and the guests on the boats lucked out too! Suzette and Colby caught a few good sized chinook with Conan, and Jon and Brian got twin 13lbers with Jacob. Ben’s boat came in with a full fish box, and Barry, Steve, and John S caught their limits of chinook along with a coho each! Barry’s fish, however, weighed by far the most, weighing in at 31lbs! Congratulations Barry on joining the tyee club! ┬áThe crew enjoyed a bistro boat the next day, with a hot lunch being served on the burger boat again so they could stick to fishing! Jess came in with a 10lber, Brian and Colby with twin 12lbers, and Suzette with a 13! The guys on Ben’s boat made VERY sure that they didn’t get sunburnt on this beautiful day. Check out the photos below and you’ll see what I mean. With the last morning of the trip came a little bit of wet stuff that was falling from the sky.. not sure what thats all about? However, the rain did get the fish biting! Jon N pulled up a nice 11lber, and Conan’s boat was once again on fire! Lem caught an 18 and a 15, and John S got a nice 11 pounder and a couple pinkys. Steve blew them all outta the water with a 26 pounder as the last fish of the trip! Thank you all for coming, we had a great time hanging out on the back deck, hot tubbing, and fishing with you! See you upstream.Click here to see photos from this trip!
