Summary

I really enjoyed this episode because Jack covers information for the Klickitat River and Olympic Pennisula.  These are two places I would love to learn a lot more about.  The Klickitat is cool because of it’s diversity and location in the Columbia basin having both summer and winter fish.

The OP is a place I plan on spending more time this year.  If you are familiar with the OP leave a comment below on a few tips to making a good trip out there.

Jack also shared a bunch of great tips for anyone interested in steelhead fishing.  Some of these tips can be found in the PDF below.

  1. Jack talked about a hybrid MOAL leech-prom dress pattern from Grab Flies that was very successful. i’d love to know the name of the pattern so i can identify which of the lovely Grab Flies MOALs it was.

  2. Gary,

    Here’s the reply from Jack on the flies at grabflies. I’ll also update the blog post with links for everyone.

    Jack uses the Improved Methow Moal in many of the rivers and on the Queets he uses the pink flash moal a lot.

    Check back if you have any other questions.
