Bonefishing in the Bahamas

March 7th, 2013

This time last year, the Live Water Team was gearing up for bonefishing in the Bahamas…one can always dream we are back on the islands, right?

The MV Bonefish is an 82-foot luxury catamaran that plies the waters of the Berry Islands, Chub Cay, Moore’s Island, Red Shank, Whale Cay, Little Abaco and a host of other lightly visited cays to the north and west. If you long to fish in places where established fishing lodges are the exception rather than the rule, the comfort and exclusivity of the MV Bonefish might be the ticket. During our visit, we had the pleasure to spend time with our friends at Frontiers Travel. » More: Bonefishing in the Bahamas

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.

Legacy Spring Creek Ranch – Come Fishing With Us!

May 19th, 2011

Legacy Spring Creek Ranch  – Springfield, Idaho

This 671-acre ranch is arguably the finest waterfowl property in the entire state of Idaho. It is located 2.5 hours from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, 2 hours from Driggs, Idaho, and 2.5 hours from Salt Lake City. Legacy Spring Creek ranch has over 3 miles of spring creeks located next to the 56,000-acre American Falls Reservoir in Springfield, Idaho. This combination coupled with a productive agricultural component and with the ability to grow key food crops, creates the perfect storm for record numbers of ducks and geese. It is not uncommon to see thousands of mallards and Canada geese loafing on the spring-fed creek systems and grain fields. An array of both game and non-game birds frequent the ranch including Widgeon, Teal, Gadwall, Canvasback and diving ducks. The ranch harbors a robust wild pheasant population to keep any bird hunter occupied after a morning in the blind. For the angler, large trout in excess of 30” cruise these waterways and provide a size class of fish rarely seen in a wild system. The most prominent species are rainbow and cutt-bows, and massive brown trout have been caught on the property. This turnkey operation offers a 5-bedroom home, a garage/shop with gunroom and bird cleaning facilities, plus equipment necessary to enjoy the Legacy Spring Creek Ranch immediately.

The fishing on our newest listing, the Flying Goose Ranch, on the Gros Ventre River is fantastic. Red hot cuttys coming strong to dry flies.  The dimples on the water in the last image are of rising fish – it looked like the water was boiling with big heads (I broke one off by a massive cutty just as the sun was setting).   For more information on the Flying Goose Ranch, click here.
