While you're in tarpon country, try throwing a few flies at snook. This is also a very exciting target. IMHO, anyway.

Yeah.

When I go to Kodiak to fish for silvers every so often, I cast from shore to "targets" (i.e., jumping or finning fish). On a typical day, I will start about 7:30 AM and fish until dusk. I...

Can totally relate. I'm looking now for a trip for "baby" tarpon; last time I had good fishing for them was way too long ago, and they were the most exciting critters I ever fished for.

Caspian Tern Patrol

Hi,

I guess the little guys (smolts, that is) are making their ways down the Alsea and out to sea this week judging from the ODF&W skiffs bombarding the skies with rockets.

Happy New Year

Hi,

Coming home yesterday I saw billions of drift boats on the Alsea. Must be something going on. River is in gorgeous shape.

Have a great year!
