“Low Clear Water” and “Fast Flying Pheasants”
What happened to fall? Seems like it’s been winter up here since the first week of November. Steelhead fishing is getting tougher and tougher again. River has dropped a lot last week and has become clear. Look for fishing to continue to be tough if we don’t see any precipitation or snow melt to bring water levels up. You will find Steelhead through out the whole river system. It’s however a game of fishing everything hoping to find a fresher fish or player that wants to hit a swung fly, nymph or a egg under the Indicator. We’re getting a couple shots a day if were lucky. For flies less is better with the swing flies right now sparse, small with a lot of movement. Egg’s tone colors down and size in more natural presentation’s.
Pics from last week . Scott with a great Hen taken on the swing. Joe is all smiles with this nice Steelhead. holds this nice Steelhead taken on a Egg. John is all smiles with this little chrome. Nick admires this nice buck taken on the swing. After my last report, myself and a couple good friends Steve Martinez and Sean McDonald grabbed the hounds and headed to Iowa for some crazy wild Pheasant Hunting. It was real good time and June our GSP got some great exposure to smart birds and I shot holes in the sky. 😁
