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...

Steelhead Weather

Low skies and rain/drizzle provided the perfect backdrop for a successful early spring steelhead outing for Bryant, Mark, and Greg. After yesterday’s  beautiful weather and tough bite I hoped for good results today. Thankfully everything aligned as we hoped and some very nice steelhead got their...
