Winter Fly Fishing Tips

Winter Fly Fishing

   Winter……. To some, just the thought of the word makes them cringe.  To others, it means grab the skis and snowboards and snowshoes and head to the mountains.  But to us Fly Fisherman, it means a chance to fish in solitude, to fish that aren’t being harassed day in and day out.

Fly Fishing Pacific North West Jetties

Jetty Fly Fishing in the Pacific Northwest

When most fly fishermen think of the Pacific Northwest, it conjures up imagery of winter steelhead in pouring rain or coastal cutthroat on a rocky beach. There is, however, another vibrant fishery hidden in plain sight on the fringes of the region. At the openings of many harbors in the Pacific Northwest are artificial jetties and each of these structures offers access to a unique and underrated opportunity in fly fishing. These jetties are home to different types of pacific bottomfish such as lingcod, greenling, and countless species of rockfish. Most fishermen associate these species with offshore fishing using heavy conventional gear, but they visit the shallow, nearshore zones more often than many anglers realize and are very willing to take a properly presented fly.
