I got my FIRST SUMMER STEELHEAD today! I was fishing maybe five minutes when I hooked up. I was a bit unsure of how to land it (having only fought with one monster winter) but the fish cooperated just fine I almost just took my fish and went home then, but whats river fishing without cold feet and a big crowd around you. I stuck it out for another hour with one missed strike but didn't really enjoy the pressure of the crowd after I caught that fish (its not very hard to do to a newbie, but I'm working on it). Caught it on a dark red and black jig. Can anybody help me with jig colors? I just blindly grab one and dont truly know what I should be using.
