N. Santiam float

L
lilsalmon
Bigsteel and I hit the N. Santiam with Rich Youngers of Creekside Flyfishing. What a day it was. We got into numerous bows and cuttys. It was a great day on the water and Rich was awesome. We fished dry and nymphs and had success with both. We also seen numerous salmon and steelhead and at one point I was so distracted by all the salmon at one spot that I didn't realize I had a fish on....probably my biggest of the day but he spit the hook at the boat. Here are some pics.......

I forgot to mention that I also got my first whitefish on the Santiam....we thought it was a huge bow or cutty and I seen it come out of the water and said...that looks like a whitefish...sure nuff, it was. It was good size one too. I should have known by the way it hit like a tank........

Randy, hope your trip was as successful as usual too....YOU rock when it comes to pics of purty fish.....
