I love chasing summer steelhead when the first rains hit because everyone is off salmon fishing, the rivers are empty and the fishing can be excellent. Today was one of those days. I was supposed to hit Siltcoos with Roger but we decided with the weather we should put it off. Since I had the day off and the river dropped to where I like it I decided to go try for some steelies. What a day it was! My best day of steelhead fishing, I must have hooked 12-15 fish. I am a little embarrassed at how many I lost until I decided to bust out my winter setup, the 8 lb. leader just wasn't cutting it since the water was pretty high. I landed 6 fish, one was a nasty ol nook so I cut the line. The coolest thing also happened today, I was using a #4 blue fox and decided to switch over to a #3. I was standing on a rock and just tossed it in the water a couple of feet in front of me just to see what the action was like at that water height. I'm just watching it spin and a nook comes out of nowhere and grabs it! It was funny and crazy to see. I had a blast today, ran into an old buddy and there was only 1 other angler out there. Wish I had more pictures but it was pouring all day and the phone stayed in the jacket. Just wanted to share this awesome day with you guys.
