Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays Everyone!
     I know it seems like a long delay in posts, but such is life!  Since the last update I have become a father and have adjusted well to the new schedule!  I have made a few big updates to the Website and wanted to share them with you.  First off, I added a link to the brand new Fish Story Guide Service YouTube page.  This is where I will post an archive of videos from all of my fly fishing adventures.  I have years worth of videos that I am in the process of uploading and would love to get more subscribers!
     Next, I put a link to the official Fish Story Guide Service Facebook Page.  This is where I actually do my most regular updates and posts.  I put videos, pictures, stories and more on this page all season long.  If you want the latest and greatest, this is the place to go!  This is also the best way to get ahold of me quickly during the season.
     I have already started booking many trips for 2019.  If you are looking for specific "prime time" dates, now is that time to get in the books!  If you have any questions feel free to let me know!
     I hope everyone had a wonderful fishing year and I can't wait to get back out on the water with you in 2019!

Spring / Early Summer Update!

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to make a quick update here on our spring/early summer fishing.  I am posting regular videos and pictures frequently on the Facebook page, but I wanted to get things up to date here as well.

Lets start with the spring!  We fished the lakes region many times and the fishing was very consistent with large fish always in the mix.  Lots of nymphs, Feedinators, eggs and San Juan's were the ticket most days.  Here are a few of the nicer fish from the spring trips:

It was a great spring with water flows just about at the perfect level, but I was really looking forward to getting back up north!

I am finally back living in Pittsburg for the summer and within the first week of guiding, I could tell that the conditions are exactly where they are supposed to be.  We have been all over the trophy stretch and other less known areas of the river.  The fish have mostly been rainbows in the 8-12" range with a few 14-16" fish thrown in to keep it interesting.  We found some browns, brookies and even still some nice salmon in the mix as well.  We even got out in the canoe one evening trip for the Hex hatch.  Here are some of the nicer fish of early summer in Pittsburg.

I hope this update finds you happy and able to get out on the water soon!  I am still booking trips in July and August at this point, so if you would like to come up and see what all the fun is like in person, please shoot me an email anytime!

Ready.... Set.... GO!

     We are back in action! I got out today for a quick scouting trip and found water temps hovering around 40. We need a bit of warm weather to really get the fish moving, but as you can see there are some to be had if you work for them! Looking forward to the start of the guiding season next week! Things are shaping up and should only get better from here! I am still booking trips for Pittsburg this June, July and August, so if you are interested in learning a new skill, technique or area, please feel free to let me know! Check back often as the fishing reports will be coming now that the season has officially kicked off!  If you have any questions at all please email me and I will be happy to get back to you!
