Back to the river
So I was finally back on the river Wednesday. Reports from Tuesday had been pretty good but the river had bumped up a bit over night and picked up some color. We got some fish by using an old trick I like to call….really, really, working hard. The fish below was the result of an impressive display in good fishing and steely (pun, unexpected, but we will go with intended) determination.
Thursday the river was dropped back down a bit and I was hoping for a decent day but not too optimistic after what I had sen the day before, so of course the river was plugged with steelhead, at one point we watched 40 chromers swim under the boat.
So, Friday….A quick half dozen and then home early? Nope. All those fish more or less vaporized, we struggled to hook one (look, lets keep this in perspective a bit, there is nothing wrong with hooking one steelhead on a fly rod, still after the day before…).
Anyway I felt confident that the missing fish from the day before was yet another example of the brutal Sasquatch predation that the state is refusing to address.
There it is, a straight up steelhead fish report. We will see what today brings.
