32" steelhead and a 38" springer!!! :dance: less than 20 casts! Both fish right where I expected them to be! Caught the steelhead on the 2nd cast! :clap: I was done by 5:15 this morning!

Being I went alone I stopped at Fred Meyer to show my son the steelhead and made him take a hero pic! :lol:

Ha,ha...early bird gets the worm!!! ;) In bed at 11:30, up at 2:30, on the road at 3:20, made it to the pullout by 4:05, then walked a 1/3 mile by headlamp to get to the hole. Legal was at 4:43 this morning, I give it a couple of minutes past that and luckily put it in front of a couple of fish right off! Glow corkies and good roe! They were nice aggressive bites! Probably fished an actual 5 minutes that wasn't spent fighting, bleeding or tagging fish this morning! It was quick!!! Bam...Bam!!! :D

Nice fish, sounds like you put more time into the trip than the fish, :)

Gotta love the "east" fork this time of year...I would be down there more than just a couple times a year if it wasn't 90 miles each way....

I love the "East fork" in July....Salmon, steelhead.....steelhead, salmon.....I'm just fishin'....never know what is going to bite!

Salmon fishing is deffinetely on the downhill side of the run but there are some bright stragglers coming up with the summers!

Looks like an awesome way to start the day. I love those mornings where you're done before the sun even rises.
