BIG FISH YEAR

Posted on April 24, 2017 at 9:35 AM



34" and 15 pounds of steel for Chris on his first day fly fishing steelhead

Well, I've been saying it all spring. We're seeing a big fish year. Fished with Justin and Chris the last few days and we netted 3 over 30" and the big one was 34" and 15 pounds or so. Damn, it's nice to finally put one of those bigger fish in the net. We've been hooking them up pretty consistently throughout the spring, but landing them has been a different matter. Certaintly looks like those back to back mild winters are paying off in terms of fish size. Can't wait to see what the fall fish look like! Last fall an angler showed be a pic of a 36" he caught a few days before, and it was every bit of that. We might see a record broken this fall.

We're still seeing good numbers of fish. Most are finishing spawning or already dropping back, but swinging the streamers yesterday resulted in some fresh run chrome fish. Nice to still see a trickle of fresh fish coming in. But their numbers are very limited. Things are running about 2 weeks ahead of schedule. I generally have decent steelheading till sometime in the second week of May. This year it's looking like we're getting pretty close to the last week or so, with more fish dropping out each day. But man oh man, what a spring. We were fishing pretty consistently from the last week of February on. Lots of fish. Hooked a number in that low-mid teens or better, and finally got one to the net. Hard to beat. Yesterday, also found the first smallie of the year. I'm sure they've been in for a while, but I've been fishing the mid and upper parts of the rivers. It's a sign of more good things to come.

Not long now till I start really thinking of bass. Enjoy the rest of the pics, and tight lines.
