  Alison and I had a great opportunity to head East and fish with for a few days.  We jumped on the moment, and flew into Bozeman MT and drove down to the Inn at Twin Bridges MT.   Rooster has a great place here, with some of the best Guides and fishing waters in Montana.   We fished the Beaverhead, and the Bighole in some tough, turbid conditions.  We brought a good shot of NorthWest weather, and most of the rivers were unfishable.  Joe W, had us off to the Beaverhead.  This is a tailwater stream,  dam controlled flows would be necessary this day for clean fishable water.  We fished nymphs in sizes 18-22  the fish were biting on and off.  I had a big 20+inch brown on for a great fight, yet lost him.  Many fish in the 14-16″ range.  We fished Streamers and Nymphs on the Bighole with Rooster.  The fishing was very good for Browns and Rainbows.  I hooked some monster fish that were to hot to handle on a 6x tippet.  The Big Hole is an amazing float and a must do for anyone with the slightest interest.

  Fishing in the Seattle area has been a hit and miss lateley.  We have had some decent days for Coho salmon, but overall the Coho run is not shaping up to be very good.  My best action has been in the Westpoint and Shilshole bay areas.  Fishing in 200-400′ of water at 90-120′ on the downriggers.  Winter Blackmouth fishing opens October 1st, we have been catching some nice Blackmouth over the past few days.  I will be booking some Fall Salmon and Steelhead trips on the Olympic Peninsula in late October and November.
