Here’s Yutao with a really nice steelhead from yesterday before the cold front. Cooler weather is here.  Water temps are currently in the high 40’s but expected to drop quickly in the next few days as the warm fall weather is over.  As water temps start to fall steelhead will stack-up seeking winter lies in slower moving pools. All that’s needed now is aContinue Reading

Blue skies and low clear water has made steelhead fishing a little challenging at times.  Yesterday’s cloudy skies were what was needed to turn the steelhead bite on as we had several nice opportunities at some very large steelhead throughout the day. postContinue Reading
