Meet Stottlemyre’s Fishing

The Stottlemyre’s, originally from Eastern Washington, have always had a passion for the outdoors. Above all, hunting and Pacific Northwest fishing was just a way of life for this family. Because baseball was a full-time job that took the family to New York City for the 7 months. As a result, the family traveled back and forth every year from hunting and fishing camps to Yankee Stadium. Most importantly, was they did it together as a family. As a result, that togetherness still shines through in the Stottlemyre’s fishing business.

Fishing the Pacific Northwest

Mel Jr. as a young boy, fished rivers and lakes throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Consequently, off-days during the baseball season were spent back east on lakes and streams, catching bass and trout. The Cascade Mountains was home to the elk and deer they hunted. Wall tents were their cabin in the woods for a better part of 6 weeks. Steelhead fishing took them to the John Day, Snake, Cowlitz, Columbia, and Clearwater River. Further more, late winter ice fishing on Potholes Reservoir and Moses Lake was on the menu.

Baseball Lead The Way

Baseball was a huge part of the Stottlemyre’s lives and still is today. Mel Sr. pitched for the New York Yankees from 1964-1975 and later become the pitching coach during the dynasty years winning 4 World Series.
