Well, the last few days of fishing had a lot of women in town, the weather and water warmed up which was really nice but seemed to stall the fish a bit. We still had  a bit of trash fish and some steelhead caught! A few big Wild fish! And then some lucky ladies managed to sneak in and grab some most fish placing! Rebecca Kelly with 2 fish and 61″ Hatchery inches got her into 4th Place Most Fish! Carrie Homburg slid into 3rd Place Most Fish with 3 fish! We also finished out our food drive with over 2,000 items donated by you ladies!! Which is just….AMAZING! Check out the live video below from fish dance with all those …

Great past few days!! We may be starting to wind down to the end but hasn’t slowed anyone down we’ve had a lot of boats out every day! Steelhead and good times were caught, of course. Which reminds me, don’t forget about Fish Dance the awards ceremony on the 16th…at 7PM at Seven Devils! A couple Biggest Fish leader changes through the weekend but no changes to our Most Fish. Ladies have caught more than one fish but has been a hatchery and a wild, so without being able to measure the wild is limiting those hatchery measurements! The fishing did pick up a little with the change in weather. On Thursday 3/7, Casual Merritt from Andrea Yoakum’s group reeled …

We had something really cool happen with the WWB 2019 Food Drive! Brian and Connie DeMond are both involved with Women With Bait. Connie participates in the tournament and Brian is an awesome bait boy for us! Brian also works for Simplot Transportation. He had a conversation with his boss, Terry Threlfall, about the tournament and that we were doing this food drive. Terry came back to him the next day and told him he would like to give Brian $500 to go spend on items to donate to the food drive!! Brian and Connie were speechless, they called us, and we were also just in awe. We got Brian connected to the food bank here locally and they worked …

Well, the snow has finally given us a breather and we have had a bit warmer weather, making the river road much easier. Some sunshine has graced us too! This weekend wasn’t quite as exciting as before for fish caught, the biting slowed down a bit. The ladies perseverance though results in steelhead still in the boat, as well as some trash fish. Karlene Madsen’s group on Saturday really persevered with 7 fish! We did have a leader board change on Sunday with Kaitlyn Kyro from Ginnie Nicholson’s boat landing 3 Hatchery steelhead. She is now in 2nd Place Most Fish with 76.5 Hatchery inches! Congratulations Kaitlyn, way to get it done! They saw a second bobcat on Sunday too …

Dawn landed a 32″ Hatchery which also lands her in 4th place Biggest Fish! Dusty Preece’s Team, Running Upstream, had a fun on the water and just one steelhead but it was a whopper! 36″ Hatchery Steelhead for Dusty which slides her into 1st Place Biggest Fish!! Our other boats out caught some wild fish and some trash fish! We started having the snow storms move in Saturday and Sunday, so our fishing was a bit slower for the steelhead, But Glenna McClure’s boat found a nice honey …

This weather! Wow. One day warm and beautiful the next we wake up to a foot of snow! All the ladies are in such great spirits though, not slowing them down one bit! Oh and we have been catching some fish! On 2/9 over in Hells Canyon, Kandie Malone on her second cast in the first drift caught her a 27.5″ Steelhead which at the time put her into 4th place! She caught this steelhead using the custom rod by Brian DeMond that she was the lucky winner of last year in our raffle we did. She said it was her lucky pole and that is for sure, she had not even fished with it yet and got a beautiful …
