Would make a great combo but here is my report from today...
So WOW.. this is the 5th or 6th day with record warmth here in the NW Indiana. I have been itching to get out. Today I was able to get out for a few hours and man was it nice. I know the spring steelhead run is in full swing but I looks like it all messed up. Compared to last year the fish were running up little by little each week. With the warmer temps last week we seen a huge surge. This week fish are falling back and lots of steelhead have came to the end of road. One part of the creek looks like a murder scene. I counted about 12 steelhead on the shores washed up after their spawn. I seen alot of fish getting ready to do the same. I dont know if its going to last till end of April. But we have some storms rolling in and maybe that will bring a new push of fish up. The Mother SUCKER run is happening also. I landed over 30 or so on the fly rod today.
Today I went 6 for 8 today on a bunny leech. Then at a undisclosed location were steelies are not the norm. I seen about 10 of them jumping into a lake up a dam. This lake does not hold steelies at all. I lost one at my feet on a egg pattern.
Well the photos of the day......
Enjoy and Tight Lines
