Westy’s Outdoor Report


Outdoor Report for March 23rd, 2017

Hi there, it’s Westy at Yeager’s reporting that it is officially spring, and that means several things to all of us who pursue the outdoor sports. We are all stocked up to meet your needs here at the store on NW Avenue in Bellingham, right where we have been since 1958 when we move here from State Street down town. Altogether we’ve been in business 95 years.

Steve, and his crew, in footwear and apparel department has some beautiful new items from Columbia and North face and has us all loaded up with great footwear for work or play. We have the best selection of hiking boots in the county and folks that know how to fit you up right.

Shelly and Landon and Curt have been filling the fishing aisles literally with truckloads of fishing gear for the trout opener next month and we have over a thousand rods on the floor by now. Speaking of that trout opener, it happens on the 22nd of April so now is the time to get in here and get those reels filled with fresh new line.

We don’t have the trout lake plant numbers as yet but as soon as we do we’ll get those numbers to you here and on our website. Whatever the numbers, you can bet there will be plenty of fat Rainbows in all the usual lakes.

By the way, our annual kids fishing day will be on April 15th and it’s the most fun thing we do every spring. Last year we had over 200 kids come through here on their day. It was crazy bedlam and we loved every minute of it. We believe it is important to get kids outside early in life and enjoying the outdoors and a family fish hobby is a great way to make that happen.

Robyn, Brian and Jason on the shooting sports side have been piling in the ammo and targets and other accessories for you summer plinkers and clay busters and for a change we are in pretty good shape with .22 Long Rifle ammo.

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you in the store soon.
