Nice fish but "Fall" that's the one right before winter isn't it? When I lived down east I chased the salmon from when the Atlantic's started to show in June through the Lake Effect snows of Ontario and Erie rivers and creeks. It never quit, when the salmon were done the steelhead were in but here when fall gets here you service the snowmachine, hook on the plow, and hope you've got enough wood put up; so nah I'm never anxious for fall anymore.

Nice fish,

Ard

Blake,
Not so much pumped about the salmon but the browns and steel are on my mind constantly! It's just around the corner. Only issue is that this is also a pretty good time to be following a well trained dog through the grouse and woodcock coverts as well

I have to say that I am looking forward to fall. The fishing, the cooler weather, and all the great seasonal beers......
Cant wait.
To me theres nothing better than kicking back after a long day of hokking up with some native brookies and enjoying a great Octoberfest brew. Or other frothy beverage of choice.......

Hi Blake,
Right now, I'm so concentrated on dry fly fishing for resident Rainbow Trout (big ones they are), that I have not given Fall much thought.

Now that you mentioned it, I am looking forward to it. Like Driftless, I have Steelhead on my mind. I'll be making long swings with my two handers. I also will make a trip to the Pit River for the Isonichia mayfly hatch. I love throwing large dry flies at stupid big fish. I also make a trip to the Eastern Sierra for big Brown Trout.

A positive for Northern California is that this year had record amounts of rain. With most of the waters that I fish being tailwater fisheries, there will be plenty of cold water for the fish.

You know if they don't go to the Ocean, they don't really count as steelhead right


Seriously though I am looking forward to fall. We are supposed to have a great run this year. Looking at the current numbers they are about 6 times what they were last year at this time. I am counting down the days till Sept. Then me and my spey rod will have some fun.

Steelhead or Big Rainbows if you prefer; they put on a great show when you hook one whatever you choose to call them...
