Sunshine, beautiful weather, perfect water conditions…..lots of people! Well it certainly was a very well attended weekend on the river with near perfect water conditions for prime spring steelhead fishing. Steve B. and girlfriend Nichole joined me on Saturday for a great day of fishing; neither had caught a steelhead before and ended up spoiling themselves with many opportunities.
Today I had the opportunity to share the river with a long time customer and friend Randy Ferris. Joining Randy today was his 13yr old son Patric. This was a special day for both father and son not only because Randy got to see Patric catch his first steelhead but because 2 years ago Patric nearly lost his life in a horrible skiing accident. Patric’s strong will to live gave him this great day on the water and many more to share with his father in the future. Pictured lower is Patric and Randy with a couple from today.
