Today we fished in heavy rain on Sac River in Anderson and theres definitely a bunch of fish swimming around in the Barge Hole.  We ended the day with some bright Kings and a few Hatchery steelhead just in time to dodge the heavy south winds. On those cold, wet days on the water be sure to drop into Roosters accross the street from the Balls Ferry boat launch for a burger and a beverage while warming up next to their wood burning stove.  Todays clients were already warm and dry when I brought them their salmon and steelhead fillets.  River closes to salmon fishing in two weeks!  I have some days available between now and then so give me a call if you want to catch some late fall Kings!
