You will get different answers depending on who you ask. Younger guys that haven’t been fishing long might think that it was really good while older veterans might say it was just alright. Fish returns are fickle and many different factors can play a role. If this year was thought to be better than last year that doesn’t mean the fish are rebounding. The next year could be terrible. Most find the steelhead returns to be somewhat cyclical. It’s also my opinion that other returns such as coho are not a good indicator for steelhead. Anybody that cares about steelhead should get involved with at least one organization. As long as there are gill nets in rivers steelhead will be on a decline.I'm curious whether this year's season was an improvement or if there are still declining. Also, is the part of the Wilson river above where the south fork enters open to steelhead fishing?
You read my mind. However the new age fisher person that travel and fish in large groups they count all the bobber downs between the group. It’s hilarious ?"mostly had double digit days. I did have two single fish days and one skunking"
Wow and were they all 20+ pounds??
LOL...looks like you had a good year. Anytime I get 1 I feel like I had a good day.Ha! I wasn't going to get snippy and fire off a rude response, but after rereading my post I see the problem. I meant MULTIPLE FISH days, not double digit... Minor mistake, right ; )
I did indeed "mostly" have multiple fish days this year, but sadly no double digit days. And no 20 pounders.
