Same here with the wild...went out to the Wilson this morning, water looked beautiful and thought for sure I'd end up 9 for 13 Instead, went 1 for 1, a fat, wild hen released.1/2 Friday afternoon, a couple of other takedowns that didn't stay. Huge native released.
Steelhead will go all the way up. I have been seeing reports that it has been getting slow. So it might not be technique as much as the fish aren't biting. If your not sure if you are using the right technique Find a more knowledgeable person. After getting pointers from a guide I was able to land two nooks on the Trask by using what I had learned from SteelmonKiller.Went out Sunday morn and started down by mills bridge. Didn't spend much time there cause by daybreak there were people everywhere. Worked by way up the river and hit every hole that wasn't full of cars. Worked on my bobber and jig technique with no success then switch to drifting a spin-glo. Surprise to no success. Worked a spinner over every hole after I fished it and surprise no success. Getting very frustrated. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, are there fish up high. I'm usually between mp 10-20. Love being out on the river but one fish in three years is starting to take its toll! Cant seem to figure it out, I'm i just not being patience enough?
Very cool! Who's your guide?I guess the timing couldn't be better cause my dad just booked a drift boat trip on the Wilson for February for the two of us. It's with a guide he's used many times and is willing to share secrets. Hopefully he can point me in the right direction if I'm not already headed there myself
