Heading out next weekend to fish the big lake. Always my favorite trip of the year.
I fish every chance I get and enjoy every time I fish. They call it fishing not catchin

Jeff and I chartered Zach and his drift boat for 12/15 and 12/16.
Should be my last drift boat trip on the Salmon River.
Should be fun.

Probably last forever.
Won’t be up here for steelhead after this winter.  Retirement!

The Niagara is awesome.  Top and bottom.
We will do one or two after New Year with Jeff’s buddy Matt who guides out of Lewiston on the lower.

Congratulations on the retirement. Been there for over 9 years. But we stay north all year.
Could you send me Matt's info in a PM? Would like to do a trip out there.

I dont know Frank personally, but I have heard he is a great captain and guide from numerous people.  I can say from experience that Matt works harder than most guys out there to be sure you are on the fish.  He is young, but dont let that discourage you from booking with him, he has been guiding for 6-8 years I believe and fishing the lower since he was a young kid, he knows the water and truly has a great handle on the best techniques to put fish in the boat.  You wont be disappointed in a trip with Matt, but as said there are a bunch of very good captains in the lower river.  Matt Yablonsky, I believe his charter service is Wet Net Charters, is another super reputable captain down there that I would definitely recommend you look into if Matt doesnt work out for some reason.
