So I know in my hearts of hearts that as the water temps cool, I’ll only have a couple more chances at the leaping, cartwheeling, summersaulting, jumping, kicking your butt steelhead leaps that I try to burn into the images of film (DSLR). But here is one from the week that turned out okay. Had a chance at true glory but had the wrong ISO and AF for the moment, and all I captured was blur.
Now is the time to swing the big flies, as our lake-run rainbows from Lake Michigan are not so focused on the egg bite. November historically is one of the best months and this year is no different as fish are on the hunt for something more.
Getting an October day off, in the tail end of Sandy as the wind has started to die down gave me a chance to bring out the big gun and swing with the two-hander. Running the Extreme Intermediate Skagit from SA, my favorite fall line by the way, found some nice fish to play with.
So much respect for those guys.
March 2nd a great day of steelhead fishing today with Terry L. We had a very nice mixture of chrome and winter fish. Had a second to snap a fin picture from one of our adult fish today. Spring steelhead fishing is really picking up and had some cancellations open up the calendar, feel free to contact me for open dates.
