Thanks to recent storms, the Elk and Sixes Rivers are running high and muddy today. Due to the popularity of these two gorgeous south coast streams, fishing in late November proved a tad tougher than earlier in the season as fishing and boat pressure has increased dramatically.

  Mark & Jeff hold a couple beauties we hooked on our "high water drift" on Friday. One of the six hook-ups included a powerful beast that continued to run and hold in fast water. After a good half hour battle, we ultimately had to move down around a point to find water soft enough to bring it to net.

Ron did an exceptional job of placing the flies right where fish live and the fish were indeed quite responsive. Both days he landed a bunch of scrappy trout, both wild and of hatchery origin.
