Fall Steelhead

NC meets Winter Storm Pt. 1

It's November 17 right? Well, mother nature thinks its January 17–Winter Storm Warnings, snow and blowing snow, afternoon temps in the mid-teens! Sound like a perfect steelhead fishing vacation to you? I didn't think so, but honestly you'd have had to work pretty hard to convince these guys...

Persistence

The tough bite of late began to show signs of improvement today. Coincidently, this corresponded to about the same time the cold front passed through the area. The river level fell dramatically yesterday and popped back up a bit today to where I'd assume they actually targeted the drop. Water...

Frost on the Pumpkin!

Wow, 20 degrees this AM as we headed out to the river–coldest so far this season. I don't think my body has fully adjusted from Monday's 75 degree afternoon. Its November and cold weather shouldn't be any surprise going forward. We finished up with the Costello group today–Dave,...
