Author Topic: 1st steelhead of the season !

finally got into my 1st steelhead of the season yesterday at my local river

peach over pink wool got it done.
water was prime..just dropped after a few days of heavy rain..
a beautiful 14lb buck ..with a 1/2 clip...released to catch another day..
no luck today ..but a buddy of mine got a nice chrome hen..


Picture would have been nice, but I guess you must have released the fish as quickly as possible for the sake of the fish.
Have another great steelhead season and I look foward seeing many of your catches, in picture that is

any more luck Mike?
my sister keeps telling me to come visit but I'd like to tie it in with a day or two of good fishing on one of your rivers.

Yup..I'm up to 5 now...4 on gear and 1 swinging flies
. Busted my switch rod on 1 a few days ago..bummer..try and make it up in late feb/march. It's best then!!! Got myself a wild 20 lb male just before Xmas biggest steelhead to date !! it was awesome.


How is the steelheading been on the lower mainland rivers this season? It's been pretty good recently up here in region 1 into my 32nd steel today a nice 10 pound hatchery.bonked this one as I am running low on eggs

I'd be interested in knowing how the vedder and chehalis are producing.might make a trip down there for a lil change of scenery

Mike, you make this mod man veryjealous! well done Mike.
I understand the Vedder has been very good this year. Fred's derby has a lot more entries than last year by a long shot.

Here's one i got on the wknd.

Thanks for the update!!

Nice catch .

Haven't been up your way this year, yet!!
Bass man
