Moldy Chum on the Kettle River

Author: Travis
fish one Had a chance to host my great friend Brian Bennett this past September on the Kettle River.  Brian is the MEAT AND POTATOES behind the only fly fishing website that matters MOLD YCHUM. Bennett an ardent steelheader still managed to introduced himself to several of the Kettle's beautiful rainbow trout over several days of stalking the river in 30 degree Celcius heat. True to form the hoppers produced, but the biggest fish were leader, tippet, line and presentation shy. One chance only  as my boy Peerwat " Bobby " Koatakul would say! Check out what Moldy Chum had to say about the whole experience. With apologies to A.D. Above are the results of various effects applied to images of a Kettle River rainbow taken by my friend  Travis Lowe on our recent rendezvous north of the border. The Kettle is a beautiful 175-mile tributary of the Columbia that flows back and forth between southeastern British Columbia and northeastern Washington. Being a trib of the Columbia the Kettle at one time supported salmon and other anadromous fish but a couple of giant dams forever put the kibosh on that program. As you can see above what remains are some very beautiful, very wary, rainbow trout. (And rumors of one phantom giant brown trout......perhaps more on that in a future post). LINK
