Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited Clean-up Day

June 11th, 2012

Test caption

In May 2012, members and friends joined the Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited (JHTU) board in giving their time to clean up Flat Creek during the Town of Jackson’s Spring Clean Up.

It’s hard not to make friends when you are walking along your town stream and straining to find trash on the shores of Flat Creek. This stream project takes place once a year; the banks were relatively clean. The water ripples by, almost imperceptibly rising with spring run-off. However the current is ripe with foam, places where trout will break the surface for a dry fly come July. » More: Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited Clean-up Day

Drift Creek Ranch – The Hot New Oregon Ranch for Sale!

February 21st, 2012

Drift Creek Ranch represents one of the last great strongholds of wild salmon, steelhead and sea-run cutthroat trout in the lower 48. Comprised of 126 +/- acres of pristine Oregon Coast Range forest, the ranch contains approximately 15 acres of cross-fenced pasture, a 3,932 sqft custom creekside home, large barn, tack room and more. In addition to the 1-mile secluded stretch of Drift Creek frontage, the property affords adjacent access to an added 1.2 miles of private fishing on hard-to-access public land upstream of the ranch. This provides an incoming owner with access to over 2 miles of riffles, runs and deep pools that hold 10-40 pound fresh, wild steelhead and salmon. With healthy runs of fall Chinook and Coho salmon and large runs of wild winter and summer steelhead, complimented by a population of sea-run cutthroat trout and a few Chum salmon, Drift Creek can out-rival any wild anadromous fishery and keep any angler entertained year-round.   » More: Drift Creek Ranch – The Hot New Oregon Ranch for Sale!

A Saturday in September: Fishing on the Snake River

September 21st, 2011

By: Macye Maher
Today Beckett (5) and I went with Scott Smith and fished from the dam at Jackson Lake to Pacific Creek.  It was epic.  A chilly wind and powerful sunshine created a decadent fishing atmosphere.  Beckett caught three cutthroat on a dry fly, all of which just surprised Scott and me to no end.  The cast grew better and better.  The first cutty took on a skating fly and the other two we watched very visual trout “takes”, and when we told Beckett to set, he did urgently.  He fought them well, and afterwards gave thumbs up and a smile.  He is a patient and happy angler, loves the boat and went barefoot the whole day.

Journal Entry from Brian Hartley – 2/13/2011

 

My just rewards for a 14-hour workday on the Sabbath…

 

I had 2 considerably larger fish on but lost them as I had to steer the fish around big hunks of floating ice – quite the challenge.  Good times.  God bless 50+ temps in February.
