Super fresh first cast of the morning a few weeks ago.I have hardly fished this winter. Good to at least check a winter fish off the list since I moved back. Hopefully a few more before season closes

Yesterday and today after work. Hooked two others. I tried at getting pics but when I'm alone its difficult to say the least. If someone has a suggestion to get good selfies with fish that will be released, I'm all ears.

I have my little waterproof Panasonic Lumix in my pocket ready to go and can do it with one hand. Sometimes it's too hard, though, trying to unhook a wild fish at the edge of the water, take a picture, and he wants to have a wrestling match.

I like that shot too but hard to do from a boat. You'll see from my pics that I tried.

Hooked into two with a spinner this evening. I woke up and was bored of stocked trout fishing, so I went steelhead fishing late in the day and it paid off lol. I think the one I landed is a hen and the one I lost a slightly larger buck.

Went on our last trip of the season recently. Didn’t disappoint. We went 5/7. Did a little jig testing/development.. new pattern outfished the usuals. Always fun and a pleasant surprise when that happens.

The crowds down south came on like a virus this steelhead season. Seems every ding dong with a drift boat decided to become a guide. Now that they've died off all of a sudden it's been great getting out. Pics from this weekend.

Seems that way anywhere anymore. Even non stocked hush hush places are full of googans now. Nice fish!

It's insanity down here the last couple years. 30 boats per drift. Parking lots full. Honestly tho, at least the guides know what they're doing and have a system they all follow. It's the weekend warriors that only come out when they hear "its hot" that drive me batty.

My plan this season was to go where other people were not, scratch out a couple fish and have a pleasant day. I only got caught up in the crowds a couple times and I still only got 2 or 3 fish anyway.

It’s pretty rough these days man. Still worth it for the fish to an extent though. A plus is most of those people don’t know the river as well as some of us and there are still fish if ya work for em. lot of this is the product of unfortunate fisheries mis management that has led to everyone congregating at a handful of rivers. That and social media. I ran into a big group from Washington on my favorite stream that I don’t see hardly anyone on. Super disappointing, but still had a decent year. There have been a good amount of fish around
