Monterey Bay Fly Fishing Report

Evan Praskin reports on 1.21.19

Winter swells! This winter has been excellent for perch fishing if you can find a window in between the surging swells. The benefit of all this energy is it creates some great contour on the beach giving those perch some good grounds to hold in. 

The days are hit or miss so if you find yourself struggling out there during these heavy conditions be sure to keep moving...

San Francisco Bay Fly Fishing Report

Capt. Kevin DeGulis reports on 10.18.18


Wold Series Bite! Too bad the Athletics are in the playoffs anymore but who cares we have striped bass in the bay! The past two weeks have been a blast out at Crissy field, but it can be entirely tide based.

For example, I got to Crissy at 6:30 am, the tide was slack at 5:22 am so, in theory, the tidal flow should have been running for about an hour. As I...

San Francisco Bay Fly Fishing Report

Evan Praskin reports on 9.6.18

This weekend I had the pleasure of taking out Lars who was visiting the SFbay on a business trip from the UK. Since he visits a few times a year, he wanted to learn about the local waters and how to approach them. I picked him up at his hotel downtown and after a quick breakfast we were at our first stop within 15 minutes( a very short Uber ride if you are car less.)...

The San Francisco Surf Fly Fishing Report

Capt. Kevin DeGulis reports on 8.29.18

Wow, what a week in the surf. It seems we have finally hit the dog dawgs of summer and things seem to be clearing up. It all started on Thursday, with my new two-hand switch rod set up (highly recommend). Schoolies couldn’t get enough of Clouser minnows, and this was the first time in a month I was able to find a consistent amount of stripers from the surf....

Monterey Bay Fly Fishing Report

Evan Praskin reports on 8.16.18

While we were gone the fishing remained good in the Monterey Bay. Some really nice fish have been caught within the bay as well as up the Pacific coast. Most are not seeing numbers, but the fish that are being caught are not little. Our good friend Ken Oda @kenoda870 beached a whale of a striper this past week that must of been one heck of a battle! 

The monsters are...

Monterey Surf Fly Fishing Report

Evan Praskin reports on 7.31.18

What a gorgeous weekend we had over here in the Monterey Bay! The weather was comfortable, the wind was low, and the swells were mellow… almost too mellow depending on what beach you chose. The Stripers have been spread out and harder to find the past few weeks though fish are being caught, just prepare to walk for them.

On Saturday we had Steph Vandenbrandhorninge...
