Fishing was very good this week. The least was probably 15 fish and it went up considerably from there. It has been hot and sunny, the river has come up a lot yesterday and today which has slowed things a little bit.
Monday through Wednesday for day and overnight charters we work first come first serve from our line that starts at a red cone all the way to the left-hand corner of O’Brien Creek. For day charters be here by 4:30 and be ready to go and we will get as many out as we can. For overnight charters we start taking people out as early as noon, but you may not be able to start fishing until 6 PM. Wednesday night through Saturday we do reservations. See our website for full information which is the first line of this post. After we get all our reservations out we will take people from a standby line IF we have good spots left. This lady and two boys did very well overnight Friday night. And you can see the cleaning table today full of overnighters with all their fish buckets, 15 fish in each bucket.

Fishing has been OK but it has been very sporadic. Periods of good fishing with periods of poor fishing in between. We had trouble getting everyone out Monday morning Some had to go overnight Monday night with others staying in line till Tuesday morning. It has been excessively crowded and is likely we will only be able to get our reservations out for Wednesday night through Saturday.

For the most part this last week our customers did very well. There were a few slow times when people struggled but in the end they still brought fish back. There seems to be some confusion with some about how things work with us now that we have changed our system and are doing reservations. Reservations online at our website start Wednesday night and go through Saturday. Monday Tuesday and Wednesday for a day or overnight trip we work from our old system of first come first serve from a line that starts at a red cone all the way to the left-hand corner of O’Brien Creek that says charter line starts here. PS Sam and I think fishing will be very good Monday- Wednesday of this next week. Starting Wednesday we put a new cone out that says reservations. If you make reservations read the information on our website about what to do. We also have another cone On Wednesday that we put out which says standby line, When we get all our reservations out , If we still have good spots we will take people from that standby line. We only were able to get a few people out Thursday and Friday from the standby line and we were unable to get any out on Saturday. If you have reservations Wednesday night through Saturday and someone else would like to join you at your fishing site, they can get in the standby line and after we get all the reservations out we will bring them down to meet you. We are charging $200 cash only and if you are two people all fishing on the same permit there’s a $20 discount per person. Pictures, some very happy fisher people.
