    When Everything Lines Up

    Joel La Follette - Thursday, January 07, 2016
    When the Sun, the Moon and the stars combined with our local weather to provide perfect conditions on your favorite river that moment lasts about a hour and a half. So most of the time we're just not fishing in perfect conditions. We have to make the best of it and currently it's paying off on the coast for those anglers willing to put in the time.

    Rob Crandall and his talented sidekick, Gil Muhlemen, have been getting clients into plenty of barbecue fodder on the north coast as hatchery fish lead the charge home. That's making for happy guides and customers. While numbers are not as high, other coastal watersheds are giving up some pretty nice wild fish for those seeking quality over quantity. Overall, it's not a bad time to be on the coast.

    The action is not as hot and heavy here on our local rivers, but it is nothing that a little rain wouldn't help out. We transitioned from high flows to relatively low water in a very short time. The chilly temps crashed the NOAA graphs and now we could benefit from a little more rain. Maybe the storms that are pelting SoCal will send a little something our way besides more Californians. I did my part and washed the 4runner late last night so it should rain any second.

    In the meantime, just change tactics to low water stuff and get out there. If you need a few tips on tactics stop by the shop this weekend for Mr. Crandall's Winter Steelhead Seminar. He's got all the answers.
