The catching on the other hand has been a bit slow. I had a tough week, we found a few steelhead, most fell off. We found some nice cutthroat, resident rainbows, and a few big incidental bull trout. But I am not a man who is used to working this hard to get his clients into steelhead, and by the end of the week I was sniveling a little bit.
I also saw some really nice kings, and a few summer silvers in the river, and oddly, pinks.
So its time to retool from the early summer gear to the almost fall gear. I need to get working on the fall caddis patterns, some summer stones, divers, revers spiders ( nosdunk) and all the stuff that probably started last week but I didn’t notice until yesterday. I better quit this and do a hook order.
Whats that you say? Hardly a month until elk season? Ohh shit! I have a lot to do.
That is about the brightest steelhead I have ever seen. Nice pic….or is it photoshop?? Ha!
