August 23rd
It looks like the Corps is slowly holding back on water so this weekend could be really good. I will be on the water both Saturday and Sunday so hopefully I can post some pics on my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters. Here is what is open between now and early November: September 4th, Oct 16th and perhaps the 30th. I will have some openings in late November through December. I have found that this time of the year can present some of the best fishing. Before construction on the dam you could see tons of fish in the shoal areas attempting to spawn. Nothing like getting a hit on an egg on nearly every cast. The problem the last two years during this time frame has been too much water. It isn't for the weak! It can be cold in the morning, but that concern tends to be forgotten if the fish are cooperating. If you want to book a trip during the time from Thanksgiving to Christmas then we can tentatively book that day. As always, if the water looks good then we go. If not then we will do it some other time.


Take care,

The river is fishing good, but it would fish better if they didn't run so much water for so long the previous day. Yes, we are still getting a solid 8 hrs of fishing per trip, but I just have to cover more water. Yesterday we caught some nice fish and even lost some bigger fish over 20" on size 20 zebra midges. When the water rose we motored downstream several miles and continued fishing with the midge. The water was a bit off color due to the fact that the water never had a chance to drop out. I made a change and went to the egg pattern and had a hit on the first cast. Needless to say, another day saved by the peach egg. We fished deep all day long and when I say deep I mean 6-8 ft. As always, ya gotta master the drift and once you do that then the number of hookups can be mind boggling! I have a handful of openings between now and the end of October. As always, it is best to contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188. You can check out daily pictures of trips on my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters. Update: here are the remains openings until the end October. August 21st, September nothing, October 2nd, 16th, 29th, and 30th. There will be a few openings in November, but first I have to plan a couple of hunting trips.

We have all heard the saying go big or go home. Well with the super clear water conditions then you better go small or go home! Size 20s and 6x or you are going to have a slow day once that sun pops out. Big fish are being found when you find moving water and structure such as big boulders or trees in deep water. You can see some monsters, but you better bring your A game. There are still a handful of open days this fall. Remember, it is best to contact me via texting at 502 432-5188.

What a summer! I know that it isn't over, but I will be back in a classroom with 30+ kids once again. I enjoy teaching, but God knows how much I love guiding. If you have kept up with my Facebook page at DoubleDOutfitters then you have seen some very nice fish landed and released by my clients. On many trips we landed a fish or two over 20", most being rainbows. However, it won't be long until the big momma and papa browns start showing up in the shoal areas. It is almost hopper time too! Last September through mid October was some of the best hopper fishing that I have seen. If you want to get out in the next couple of months then ya better start thinking about booking a trip soon. I can only do weekends and many of them are getting nabbed up. Remember, it is best to contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188. PS, this Sunday, the 7th is open.

Just finished with 9 days straight of guiding. We caught a lot of fish and in the past few days caught several over 20 inches. There are a handful of areas where there are some monster rainbows in the 6-8 pound range just cruising and picking up stuff on the top and eating emerging midges. We have pulled off or have broken off some in the size range, one which looked to be even larger than the one I put on my Facebook page last month. I have July 26th open then after that it will be weekends only. Yes, school will soon be starting so I need to get back in that routine. Call/text me on my cell at 502432-5188 if you want to book a summer or fall trip.

Hey folks. If you are trying to contact me then text or leave a message on my cell at 502 432-5188. I have no more July dates available, booked solid through the end of the month nearly every day. I do have a couple of days during the first week of August. After that it will be weekends only. If you are looking into booking a late summer or fall weekend trip then the time is now. Hopper fishing from Sept through October can be phenomenal! I might guide the whole week of my fall break in October and I will definitely post those available dates if I do so. Fishing has been solid. You just have to dodge the summer showers and do a little searching, but the fish are cooperating. You can always check out new pics of people and their fish on my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters.

Wow, what a June! Fishing was great and it looks to be great in July as well. I was out on the water for over 20 days this past month and I would like to thank all of my clients. Anybody who has ever gone with me knows how passionate I am about this river and how hard I work to put clients on fish. Fishing this river can change on a daily basis and it takes a while to get to know her. Fishing: The post caddis hatch is on. Fish are much more opportunistic feeders picking up beetles and other terrestrials. I always have an egg rigged, a roach and zebra midge, a roach and rainbow warrior and a beetle for topwater. Big and I mean big fish are on timber and downstream from massive bolders. Just the other day a client of mine caught an 8 pound bow on a bolder the size of a car! You can see the pic on my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters. I have one last day open in July and that is the 30th. Contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188 if interested in a summer or fall weekend trip.

Been a fish in' fool lately, 6 to 7 days a week out on the water and we have been catching fish! I had a client cancel a two day trip on June 27 and 28. Those two days are now open. Check out my daily pics of fish on Facebook at Double D. Outfitters. It is always best to contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188.

Guided the past 7 days and did well. Yesterday the Corps decided to run water early and we were only able to get a few hours in before it was too high to fly fish. I have 2-3 days still open in July and a few during the first week of August before school starts. Over the past 7 days I have discovered a few areas that have been holding some nice fish, some very nice fish. We have been able to land some in the 18-20 inch range but have pulled or broken off some true monsters over 24"! Remember, it is best to contact me at 502 432-5188 if you are looking to book a trip.
