I feel like a guide except I pay for all the trips. LOL

Season is pretty much over but you're welcome to join me sometime. Where are you located?

So last night a guy down the road invited me to launch off his private property. He's not a fisherman but he happens to live very close to one of the hottest holes on the river. I took him and another old timer and they missed two solid bites. Like they literally didn't move as I'm screaming at them to reel. I didn't know it at the time but that's after my guide friend landed 4 out of that hole earlier that day. It's that good of a hole. So I went back tonight thinking I might get a few by myself but only ended up with one. Smallish but hard fighter and lots of jumps.

Went out today for a last winter trip of the season. Had a great day going 3/5 before 9 am. Kept two colored up bucks knowing tagging fish this time of year is a gamble. One cut good, one left a lot to be desired. Maybe I’ll have another “last trip of the season.”

It was by-catch and the saddest looking steelhead I've probably ever caught but what the heck, I'll post it up here. The rod gave a quick little twitch that I thought looked like a fish but then just stopped moving like a snag. As I reeled it in I thought for sure I was just snagged on a branch because it literally gave me no fight.

He’s a tired warrior, but a warrior none the less.

Nice little winter slab caught back in February. I was fishing a sweet pink cherry BnR soft bead. That was literally fist cast into the hole and I landed that beauty out on the Wilson.

Last year was my worst winter steelhead season ever. Got out for the second time this winter yesterday and landed a beautiful wild buck before the rivers blew out. Fish was released of course and swam OFF strong, this season is shaping up to be better already😀

Nice one! I have to get my '23 evasive species permit, I mean, "tag" and get started once the water drops.
