Planned on getting on the river early in the morning this morning, but that didn't happen. Got down below the hatchery around 1pm and as soon as I got there I saw 2 people catch a fish. Spent a few hours more seeing a few more fish caught by others. Pretty soon I could see a shoulder to shoulder situation starting to happen, so I moved over to the last "finger" to get some space. Pretty soon about 6pm I caught my 1st fish with a "fish pill". Landing her was a lot of fun, she was doing all kinds of aerial moves I definitely started to get that forearm burn trying to land it. About an hour later I caught the second one, also on a "fish pill". Had to say I had a blast on the river and was real happy finally catching my first 2 steelhead on the river. I've been trying like hell to get something. Both had eggs, and the 1st was 25", and the second 30".
