Steelhead 2022 show OFF

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.

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.
