December CFF Fishing Reports


The holidays are a busy time of year so December fishing reports were a little slow but people got out on the water and got into fish!

In mid December Kevin Luettgerodt did some Euro Nymphing on the Deschutes River below Harpham Flats. It was a chilly 36 degrees with clear skies.

George Krumm, the editor of Fish Alaska Magazine, managed a steelhead and then traveled to Pyramid Lake in Nevada to chase Lahontan Cutthroats. He caught some nice fish in the 10 to 12 pound range.

Nice black skipjack tuna on the fly while fly fishing on long range boat, Shogun off the Baja Pacific coastline.

CFF speaker Joe Warren had a bucket list trip, going on a long range bluewater flyfishing trip out of San Diego. Some storm fronts came through, making for rough seas and scattered the fish but when they found them, they got them! Joe managed to catch over 20 tuna, a mixed bag of yellowfin, skipjack, black skipjack, and bonito.  He also caught two striped marlin, one on conventional and one on the fly. Congratulations Joe!
