I was just wondering how many brewers out there are into fly fishing and have always wanted to float/fish the green river here in UTah?
I use kickboats and think it is the ultimate boat for this fishery. I have been out there twice this year. I usally go 4-5 times/year. Anyone interested in getting a group venture going? It looks like the snowy weather is giving way to sun this week and maybe the cicada's will come back out.

Sounds good to me but I am in Texas.

Looking forward to taking my 5 weight out for some smallmouth fishing in Ontario the summer though.

Are you allowed to combine so many good things in one subject post?

That sounds like a great trip, but if I left today, it would take me three months to get there.....I would stop at every river, stream, spring creek between Seattle and UT and end up fishing until winter hit. Then I would probably turn around and fish for steelhead on the way back....

I've just returned from a four day, three night float on the Smith River in central Montana. The river was high and muddy, but we still did quite well bouncing San Juan worms next to the bank, catching fat browns and rainbows in the 12-20 inch size range. My 3-gallon keg of Helles was well received at camp, as was the smoked brisket that I reheated over the campfire.

That does sound fun, ELK, but I have too much great fishing within a 100 mile radius of where I live to venture much further than that.

I thought of you chum but I didnt think they let you south of Wy. How many 20"ers did the team catch? and were they footballs or what...The fish are up to 19" on the GR blame it on 5 years of drought but over 20" seems like winning the lotto.
I have had 2 Texans come up for trips.

I caught the sole 20 incher..I had two on bigger than that, but one broke the line and the other jumped out of the water and spit the hook out...We probably had about a dozen in the 18-inch range...the vast majority were in the 14-16 inch range...we probably caught around a hundred of those (5 fisherman in the group).

I was just fishing yesterday. Except around here we use a rake at low tide. I got about 25 quahogs and a bucket of mussels. Should be clean enough to eat tomorrow. The clams will go in "chowdah"; the mussels will get steamed in Lambic.

Greg, right across the street from my house. You need a permit and a "clam ring" (size guide), but the local bait shop sells both.

I just got back from a trip to the Nehaliston Plateau. We float tubed a couple of really nice lakes for ~15in bows. I brought a tap-a-draft of kolsch. It went over very well.
