Spring Steelhead

Steelhead Weather

Raw! Pretty much the best way to describe the the conditions today. Wind, rain, ice, sleet, and snow was a near constant from start to finish. The only benefit to today's weather were some happy steelhead. Pictured is Cade with a beauty from this afternoon....

Hottie
