A little tardy in getting this post together. This is a trip I took with my daughter Ally, her boyfriend Nick and Hero the dog back in the middle of November in 2018. It was cold and the current state of steelhead runs, both A & B, coming up into the Snake river system are just awful – to put it mildly. WE left Pullman, WA way too early in the morning and arrived at the bottom of Rattlesnake Grade before the sun came up. Did I mention that it was really cold ???

A few new things I got for this trip:

Patagonia Stealth Atom Sling Pack

NAUTILUS CCFX2 REEL…

I almost picked up one of the rods but will wait a few more months before doing so…Buelah Platinum Spey Fly Rod, 13’2″, 7wt. Below is a map location of The Grande Ronde River in Southeastern Washington…

Grande Ronde River Map…

XMAS lights in Lewiston, ID at 4:30 AM…

Coming down Rattlesnake Grade way too early in the morning...

Chemtrails above the Grande Ronde…ūü§™

Ally putting on Hero’s warm jacket along the river…

So we drove around for awhile to warm up. This is above Boggan’s Oasis, the only outpost of civilization along this stretch of river in Washington…

Frosty parking spot for Nick’s Landcruiser above the river…

Hero takes Ally for a walk…

Ok there it is, go for it…

Ally ¬†– The Packmule…

Looks like someone arranged those rocks for soaking in the Summer…

Nick wades in and starts nymphing…

Up river, or looking North…

Down river, or looking South towards Oregon…

So, while Nick was nymphing, I was swinging #6 bugs…these are the results…

These guys laughed at me and left…

So did these guys in the gallery…

They were everywhere !

We moved to another spot up river, where I actually ran into a guy who was float fishing and he said he caught one smaller Steelie…this was the only person that I spoke to , all day, that caught a fish…

Hero, Ally and Nick…warming up in the sunlight that finally came over the canyon walls…

A campfire pit at our next stop…

Lunch time !!!

I spent some time working with Nick on his nymphing style. This is the first time he had nymphed for Steelhead…

This is a nice section of the Grande Ronde…

Another view from the same spot…

Time to move again…

Further up the river…

Another bend in the river…

One more…

Last stop…the sun was going behind the canyon wall at 3:20 PM…

Nick casts and steps down with a wet #4…

Boggan’s Oasis…This is the new building, the old, original structure burned to the ground the previous year…

Menu…

Placemat…

Ally has a BLT…

Pop has the Steak Sandwich…

Nick goes for the French Dip…

The “Get Away” driver holds down the fort…

Starting up Rattlesnake Grade

Getting curvy…

Into the hairpins…

…getting snakey…

Into the sunset…

Moonrise in Southeast Washington…

Pullman, WA is on that rise in the distance…

 

Next: Down and back and in-between…

These will be the first steelhead fly patterns that I have tied since 1975, when I traveled up to Vancouver Island to fly fish for these sought after seagoing Trout.I will begin by tying four of each pattern – maybe more if I decide to vary sizes . A lot has changed since then and the runs have been drastically reduced and these fish along with many of the great Salmon runs are in peril. The causes are many and will not be documented here…This particular post has taken way too long to finish… I have a series of mostly photographic posts coming up shortly…

Completed box of traditional Steelhead Fly Patterns…

Home base… while Ally goes here to get her degree in Veterinary Medicine…

Traveling down to Lewiston, Idaho and the Clearwater River…

Coming down the grade ( Lewiston Hill )…

Traveling East along the Clearwater River towards Orofino, ID…

A right turn towards Peck, ID…

…and The Red Shed Fly Shop…I have never seen so much great stuff squished into such a small space…

So I was advised to purchase this book about the wonderful rivers in the area – The Clearwater, Grande Ronde, Salmon and Snake rivers and their tributaries. Inside one finds history, the names and bios of folks who pioneered steelhead fishing in these locations, their stories and tips, fly patterns that they used and the evolution of rods and equipment. This book is just a great read !!! Many of the first patterns I am tying will come from it, with a few variants of my own…

”¬†This fly was introduced and popularized by Eddie Ward as he fished the Clearwater River back in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. He was a graduate of Princeton so he used the college colors, orange and black and the athletic teams’, Tigers, to name the fly. It proved to be a very successful fly to lure big steelhead on the Clearwater.”...HERE
