Guy at the hatchery said that 95% of the re-runs aren't even being caught! They are just coming back to the trap a second and third time! He was asking us why the hell no one has been catching very many fish cause they been re-running them like crazy! Hopefully the water has FINALLY stabilized and the dipsticks at the dam have quit funking with the water levels.
Course the larger fish was lost at the boat...I hate it when that happens...
Caught on a bright purple Brads wiggler...Been using diver and prawns without much luck...Switched over to plugs and started hitting fish.. Haven't caught any rerun fish yet...I know they are down there,but I ain't catching them...Water needs to drop a bit more and warm up a little..
I went back and tried to repeat the feat yesterday...I didn't hit a steelhead,but did have a huge battle with a springer in fast water...After 10 minutes the hook popped out for some reason...If I am going to do battle with salmon,I may have to step up to something more than 8 lb...LOL
