decided to go out to the Kalama again,
went up to the closed section to watch the spawn for a bit... tons of Steel up there harassing the nooks.
to bad the water is off limits.

headed back down to fish a few holes.
ended up with 4 fish on while drifting eggs, but they all got away.
not sure if it is my hook set, a dull hook or a lack of skill, but they all stayed on for maybe one min before spitting out my hook.
2 on with old eggs in borax, 2 on with EZ Eggs soft bait.

about to leave for the day and I decided to toss a spinner out there.
caught a 23" steelhead on an all black #3 spinner from RnB.

I know its small, but I just started to catch fish with any kind of consistency so I decided to bonk it.
good thing too, steaks were small, but very orange and very tasty.

Man your on a lil hot streak huh? Nice fish! Again!:)

I don’t want to jynx myself, but it looks like the time i have put in is starting to pay off...
its nice to show the lady that I can actually catch something other than small trout and sculpins... haha

I think she was starting to think I had a secret life or was spending my time at a bar/strip club.

I get the same feeling around my house from December through sometime in March!:lol: I know she's wondered!
