At the end of his fall guide season on the Klamath, Neil Montgrain brings this trophy specimen to hand. This coastal cutthroat fell prey to a swung intruder style sculpin pattern.
Meanwhile, the first big storm of the season is making ready to sack the Northcoast. These early fall storms are rare, and while most folks might dismay at such inclement weather, for those of us who love swinging flies for sea-runs a big storm like this is just shy of a miracle.
All of our coastal rivers are primed for their first big rises and drops. Stay tuned...things should get interesting throughout the next few weeks.
