I caught this sea run beauty fishing for Steelhead on the elk river the other day. It hit a 12mm soft bead in the tailout of a swift pool. It was large enough that I thought I had a small steelhead on for a minute.

Is that the spot past the hatchery where you have to grab the rope on down?
No, it is further up river from that. A rope would be nice to have though, it is a bit of a steep climb down. This is the big corner where there is a bit of dramatic drop in the river.

Wow, beautiful scenery and fish! That tailout looks like a winner! Always wanted to fish down there
The runs are pretty depressed here this year, but it is beautiful and if you're willing to put in the effort of getting into this terrain you can mostly fish alone. I really enjoy the experience and will likely give trout a try this summer down here.

That's my childhood stomping ground, thanks for the pics. I haven't made it there in the last few years. Most of that stretch is impossible to access or tough to fish.

Caught this 6lb female late in the day at Henry Hagg Lake near C ramp on March 6th. It put up quite a fight and jumped out the water twice. My biggest fish ever at Hagg Lake.
It's a beast! What did she take?

Great first post Kaotic1! Hopefully it'll be even more chaotic next time; with an even bigger brute! :D
