Spring Steelhead

Soggy days

Soggy days and steelhead go hand-in-hand. The first half of today was certainly that. Sunday nights snow is quickly melting. Combine this with the rain received and the forecasted rain, we’ll need to keep an eye on where the river levels go. Currently the river...

Not easy but worth it

High winds and weather seem too be the theme the last few days. As I write this post heavy snow is falling and I’m hopeful for some of that famed “global warming!” Steelhead fishing no matter the season is synonymous with poor weather. Tough it...

RiverQuest guide Captain Don Graham put his guys on steelhead throughout the day today with multiple hookups and fish brought to net with flies and  fly rods. Here, Gary hoists a hefty 14 lb. winter buck that garnered top honors for the day. Congratulations, Gary,...
