    Default Re: My Winter Steelheading Journey

    That's a "pro" reportthanks for sharing your journey with us

    Well today wasnt very successful. 0-2 over a period of three hours.

    Weather:

    Overcast
    40-45 degrees
    Rained all night and morning

    The stream:

    Definitely higher but not blown out at all or stained.

    Fish:

    None to speak of unfortunately. I had two hook ups but both threw the hook. I vet the feeling the fish had been pestered all day by the other fishermen around but idk.

    Flies:

    Hooked up on chartreuse and flame size 12. I tried white with chartreuse, white with orange, chartreuse with white, orange with a veil, and oregon cheese in 12s and 14 s with no success. I saw some fish movin upstream through a shallow section and even tried swinging a purple zonker...but nothin.

    Technique :

    The two fish i had on came from the same high stick technique i used Saturday. I used a large amount of shot to slowly tick the bottom of the run.

    Overall:

    Great afternoon nonetheless. After a while the other fishermen cleared out and i had it to myself. Didnt work out but i think if i had had more time i couldve managed one at least. Man it gets dark early this time of year! Ill be out again this weekend with a friend of mine who has never fished for steelhead. Hopin to have a good day to get him hooked. Update comin this weekend!

    Sorry for the gap in reports. Ive found myself extremely busy lately. Ive recently been hired to a new job in a new city so fishing has been back burnered for now. I ve gotten out twice recently and hooked up with a handful of 10 lb fish. Last outting a citrus clown egg, size 10, slowly drifted through pocket water did the trick. I also had success with a size 12 white egg with a chartreuse dot. Unfortunately no pics to show, but this has been my most successful winter yet! Ill post up when i do get a chance to fish but it may not be as often as i d like. Thanks all.
