The Guided fly fishing business is based on the PRE arrangement of guides, equipment, location requirements and lodging to coincide with the day or days you the client has chosen to fish. These types of businesses can only operate if those dates are POSITIVE.
There is the issue of water quality i.e., high flows, turbidity etc. that can change in a matter of hours. We can sometimes predict this happening and booked dates will be cancelled or moved to open days later in the season or next season. This is done upon the advice from your guide be it myself or one of the guides we use. During the winter months when this may happen I will call the clients prior to their dates and inform them of fishing conditions that may affect their trip. Your nonrefundable deposit will be transferred to another open date should the river be unfishable upon the booked date.
The dates booked are held with a $100 non refundable deposit per boat per day paid by check mailed to Brazda’s Fly Fishing, and a valid CC number supplied at time of booking to hold the days. The client may re-schedule up to 45 days prior to their date. If you cancel within 45-30 days of your scheduled date you will be charged 50% of the total trip costs. Cancellations within 30 days of scheduled date the client is responsible for the full price of their booking and will be charged on the Credit Card number supplied at booking. Remaining payment for your dates will be paid with a check, cash or credit card at the end of your fishing dates.
Also, you will never be charged a guide fee for rain outs. Thank you Jeff Brazda
"The best Steelhead guide/lodge on the Olympic Peninsula period! Jeff Brazda is one of the finest guides I have had the pleasure to fish with, he even had the patience to teach my ADD personality to spey cast. With one of Jeff's guides Joe Willauer I was able to catch my first steelhead "on the swing" using my new spey casting skills ! This is a trip not to be missed call or email Jeff and see if he has a spot for you or your group. Enjoy and Tight lines to all -- Popamack! "
Hi Jeff....Fred McCollum here. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed fishing at the Bogy house lodge two weeks ago. The lodge was very comfortable, the food great, your guides were extremely hard working and excellent. I didn't land as many fish as I hooked, but I guess that is not unusual! I even enjoyed fishing with Badaliance and that's good! I hope to be back next year the first week of April.....if you are around Ennis this year call me and we will wet a line or at least lift a glass! Fred
Jeff, Just wanted to thank you for a memorable steelhead trip. I really enjoyed myself. Can't thank you enough for all the help and instruction you gave me. I learned a lot.
You have a great operation. Enjoyed meeting your other guests. Annie was great in the kitchen and your younger guides showed great enthusiasm and love of their sport.
Would certainly do it again.

Washington Fly Fishing Guides - Fall Steelhead Fly Fishing on the Methow River, Wenatchee River and Klickitat River for the 2013 Season
The past years fall run has been spectacular on the Methow and Klickitat Rivers.
The upper Columbia strain is known for it’s free rising steelhead, a tendency which is definitely a bonus to the fly angler. The Methow river is a dry fly anglers paradise, every inch of nearly every run screams for a waked dry, and the steelhead that reside often oblige. We fish the Methow and Wenatchee river as soon as it opens in October and on ito the freezing weather of November or December.
The Klickitat river will often be fishing well by the second week of July and the Wenatchee and the Methow as soon as it opens in early October. The Klickitat is best known for 5-12 lb fish but boasts steelhead over the sacred 20 pound mark. The klickitat fishes well right up to its closure the last day of November.
