New Photo Gallery Added to Aspen Ridge Website

We've put a photo gallery on our website so we can share images from Aspen Ridge Ranch with our guests and friends. There's an album for scenery, one for wildlife, one for ranch life, and of course one for fishing. Go check it out at We're in the process of rounding up photos to add to the gallery, so if anybody has any pictures they'd like to contribute, send them to us attached to an email.

Upper Williamson article in Northwest Flyfishing Magazine
The winter issue of Northwest Flyfishing Magazine will feature an article about the Upper Williamson River. Written by David Farris, a top-notch pensman and avid flyfisher who is a regular guest at Aspen Ridge, the article will cover the Upper Williamson from headwaters to the Klamath Marsh. We're not sure when it will hit the newsstands, but probably some time in October or November. A quick check of of Northwest Flyfishing's website will let you know when the winter issue has been published.
Time to Confirm Reservations for 2006

We are only going to host 4 fishing weekends in 2006, and one is already reserved so now is your chance to snag one of the remaining June fishing trips to Aspen Ridge. The rate will remain $500 per person for three days (two nights) of prime fishing during the black drake hatch. We will again offer group rates of $400 per person for groups of 6 or more. We expect to have the remaining weekends reserved by the end of 2005 so it might be a good idea to bring it up at your next club meeting. For those interested in a Memorial Weekend Bird-watching/flyfishing combination trip at Aspen Ridge Ranch let us know and we'll let you know if it comes together.

The flames of aspen fill the Yamsi Valley. Snow has already made a brief appearance. The river temperature has dropped to a chilly 48 degrees and large trout are active again, rising to some tiny hatch and pine seeds from the lodgepole. Dawn continues to paddle her kayak up and down the winding river, memorizing the change of season and where each big fish is hiding. Bob has stowed the tipis for the coming winter. The fixtures of the mess hall have been tucked away in boxes, the great Dutch oven oiled and stowed. As we prepare for deep winter snows we remember fondly all the wonderful guests who visited our humble home to fish, share stories, and make friends. We want to thank you all. We look forward to seeing old faces and new next season when swarms of Mayflies flood the river and Redbands come from miles around to feed and rise to your cast.
