December 29-30 Steelies

Fished the last two days with Scott and worked hard for the fish we landed with a tough bite both days. We didn't fish the Salmon River yesterday but talking to people the bite seemed to be a little better on the mid to lower Salmon than on the Sandys. There was lots of melting snow and ice that dropped the water temps a few degrees and shut them down for us in the afternoon.

Late December Salmon River Steelies

Here are some of the pix from my last few outings. The fishing has been hit and miss lately. Yesterday was warm and rainy and everyone I talked to that fished did well. Today was another story, we had temps in the low 20s and a wind chill of 9. The river went up to 1250cfs last night and the bite was tough but we managed to scratch out a few nice fish

December 21st Steelhead

Did a half day trip with Dave from Maryland and started the day with a first cast hookup and ended the day with a fish on the last cast. Thats the way to start and finish a day! Great half day overall with plenty of hookups. The Salmon River is up a bit running at 1800cfs and it rained on us all day so it doesn't look like it will be dropping in the next few days.

December 12-14 Steelheading

I was out Monday through Wednesday fishing with Will from Connecticut. The first day we hit the Sandys which were low, clear, and very cold in the am. The bight was tough until about noon when the water temp went up slighly and the fish turned on. Tuesday was a really tough day on the Salmon River, we ended up landing about five fish but we worked very hard for them. Wednesday was the best day, the Salmon River fished well from morning till evening. We didn't get all the pix of our fish since we were doing mostly filming with our GoPro cameras but still managed to get most of them. Great three days overall!

We hit the local waters monday and headed westward tuesday. Monday we caught some bright chrome, mean stealhead and lost some pigs too! We also managed to land a rainbow and a big drop back female brown. Tuesday caught lots of rainbows and some nice browns, all beautiful fish in high water conditions. Now its time for some R & R! Heading down to Connecticut for the next four days to hang out with the family!
