May 5-6th drop-back Steelhead on the SR

The past two days were like night and day on the SR. The first day was great and we landed over twenty fish again but the second day was a completely different story. The fish are dropping really fast now and there were definitely much fewer fish in the upper river. It really is amazing how fast things change! We only landed six fish yesterday but the weather was beautiful and we had a great time nonetheless.

May 1-3 Salmon River Steelhead

Fished the past three days with Brian and Brendan on the Salmon River. We did really well all three days landing over 20 fish a day all three days! The fishing has been on fire lately with a combo of drop backs eating everyhing in site and there is still some fish spawning which means the upper river still has many fish behind females eating eggs in and around gravel.

Late April Salmon River Steelies

My computer has been out of commission for about a week and a half after it took about a six foot fall off my dresser so I will just show some of the best pix from that time period. The fishing has been amazing over the past week and a half landing large numbers of fish everyday. The water has been high as well but still very cold lingering around the mid 40s. Here are some of the pix from the last week and a half
