Decided to make a quick trip out to Armitage (Just up past Oregon Rod, Reel and tackle(-: ) to fish for an hour or two before the wife got off from work. A day as nice as today would have been a sin if I didn't fish at some point during the day. Well I wasn't really expecting any action except maybe a few trout like always.... but then switched to the float and not after long, it went under and game on!!! Only fished for about and hour and go back in time for the wife to come home! great day made even better!! Nice Bright, and thick hen (30in. and probably 6 1/2 lbs)! pretty average steelhead for our area

Hey there's nothing wrong with that as long as you're hooking into something fun! Where are you still catching winters? I did not have a very good winter season :( And I tried A LOT!!! Ha ha

I'm done with the coast till next season. So i'v been fishing right here in my back yard;)
But there is no hatchery program for the winter's here so they all get let go. It's kinda funny i fished the coast hard all winter and only tagged a couple, and i fish in by back yard and i bang more fish in 1 month than i did all winter on the coast!

Yeah they are still pretty low in numbers, but they are definitely there. Heard of quite a few being caught (including myself (-; ) but it will only be getting better and better as each day passes. Have you tried fishing hayden bridge area? I've heard of a couple around there and harvest lane.

Yeah i have been hitting havest area every week with nuthin yet. I know they are there and at harvest right now, tried harvest today but hard to get good access points at harvest this time of year. Hayden on the other hand... i will pull a couple out from there this year. i know it :p
