Steel...

Steel...

Water is still a bit chilly for the Smallies, but the Steelhead are in; my neighbor went on Thursday and picked up two Nats, and one Bow, just down stream from Elkton....hang in there the water will warm up soon...

lots of NICE chinooks passing through the Winchester fish ladder. I'm also seeing a lot of boats in the river.

I plunk for winters down there but for springers I'm not sure. There are so many ways to fish for them. I here you can plunk for them but i have never done it and i think you would use a little heavier gear than i use for winter steelhead.
