A Day In The Sierras with Cal Trout's Mikey Wier & Jeff Thompson

I recently had a chance to fish the Truckee River with a couple of Cal Trout's ambassadors.  It was a epic day on the water, even with the typical afternoon passing thunder shower.  The fish were a bit finicky, but we had a chance to bring some to hand.  I'm always thrilled to hit up some waters in my home state, especially in the heart of the Sierras.    Cal Trout is an amazing organization dedicated to preserving rivers and bodies of water within California.  Their most recent effort is geared towards the stunning Smith River.  Have a look!  Click to see their video.

Eastern Oregon's Owyhee River Browns

Eastern Oregon's Owyhee River is considered a river to fish before you die.  We had a chance to hit it up last Spring before the crowds got really crazy.  It didn't hurt that it was supposed to be a near monsoon according to the weatherman, keeping all the other anglers safely dry in their homes.   Once the showers had died down, we had a blast catching brown hogs on dries all day long, with the occasional switch to streamers for a little variety.

Grindstone Lakes with Fly and Field Outfittters

Deep in the back country of Central Oregon lies Grindstone Lakes, which is managed by Fly and Field Outfitters.  We arrived in the morning after a freak late spring snow storm, but soon braved the chilly conditions and wadered up.
