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.
