  • Steelhead love yarnies (side drifting)

    We had a great day on the water fishing the Grant (GW) from another forum last Saturday. The best part of the day was the lack of boats. I think there were only like 6 other boats on a river that's normally a zoo. :dance: We spent the whole day side drifting all sorts of tackle and had to re-rig way more than I wanted to. You get spoiled when float fishing all of the time.

    First fish of the day was this big boy! 33 inches long and a great battle.



    He took hot pink/white unscented SS yarn ball.



    Next pass I miss another fish and Grant hooks up with a nice steelhead on eggs. It came off unfortunately. Here is Grants second fish.



    Me playing with my new favorite side drifting rod. A 7'4', high modulus, slow action, 4-8 lb steelhead whoopin machine. Its sweet and has no trouble landing big fish.



    And a nice little native. Came on a steelhead orange/cerise SS yarnie.



    Daniel was pretty quiet the fist half of the day until he switched over to the same yarnie I was using and then he went on a 3 fish tear!





    Hot color of the day! Steelhead orange/cerise. About dime size.



    My favorite pic of the day. The waterfall and light shinning through along with the fish jumping is pretty cool!







    What a great day on the water. We hooked 7 and landed 5 steelhead.

                Some days they only want one thing and others they will eat anything. The water looked like perfect roe or pink worm water to me but I decided to be the guinea pig and throw yarnies all day. It paid off. Color of yarnies can make a difference too but we do really well on steelhead orange/cerise, hot pink/white, baby pink/white and cerise/chartreuse.

                              Peace/Cherise.....A proven killer at certain water levels on the stream of your last 2 trips!!! Kinda funny really....leapfrog down river with all the guide boats and on any given day everyone use's the same exact set-up depending on the river levls and clarity!
