Pacific Northwest: , by Dax Messett: Steelhead Season is almost upon us!: 3 stars
Steelhead season the rivers of the Pacific Northwest is just right around the corner.  I spend my time chasing steelhead with a spey rod on the best rivers in the Pacific Northwest, during prime time on those watersheds.  I had an incredible overall season last year, and expect a very busy season this year.  I just opened up my online booking calendar for my season, and bookings are very limited for these venues.  Please contact me with any questions and more details regarding my venues, and if you wish for me to hold some dates.  Here is my upcoming calendar:
 July/August: Spey Camp on the Lower Klamath.  Just a few spots left.  Join fellow Confluence guides Gino Bernero and Leslie Ajari for the one of the best on water spey casting and swing angling instructional opportunities in the business.  Super fun camping experience too!  Just bring a sleeping bag, we have everything else.  
September: British Columbia Hosted Trip .  This trip is full, as always.  Inquire for next year.  I will be several different lodge based and camping trips on both the Lower Skeena and Upper Skeena System. 
October: The Grand Ronde.  This will be my 5th season working for Scott Odonnell's Speywater Lodge on one of the coolest and most celebrated steelhead rivers in the States.  There are some spots left on my multi day float trips, one of the best steelhead experiences in the business through a remote wilderness canyon.  Lodge spaces are also available.
November: The Trinity River.  The closest and one of the most productive steelhead rivers to the Bay Area.  A superb place to learn how to spey cast and swing for steelhead.
December-January: The Southern Oregon Coast.  Chasing winter fish on the diverse rivers on the Oregon Coast is one of my favorite venues.  Just a days drive from the Bay Area, these rivers are more stable than Nor Cal rivers.  Very limited openings this season.
February-April: The Olympic Peninsula.  I've extended my season up here in the land of the winter giants that run through these amazing rivers.  These famed rivers that come out of the rainforest hold the biggest winter steelhead in the world.  Epic swing water abounds.  This venue is for serious swing anglers looking for a specific fish, a specific moment in their steelhead journey.  Not for anglers who still want to fish from a boat and have their guide row them into a fish.  You need to stand on your own two feet to get them here.
