Well a lot of trout are headed home after the Trout opener to a frying pan..It was a good weekend for the people that made it out for the big opener. Mushrooms have been poping too ( speaking of a frying pan)and the harvest for them is in full swing as well. I have been helping a friend Jeff get his KTM EXC200 ready for the trails. Him and I looked at it and he bought it a few weeks ago and it just needed some cleaning up and a few nuts and bolts were missing from ratteling out. Over all the bike is ready to go so the weather is right and the trails are calling.
I had a half day trip on Tuesday for Steelhead and Trout with Pete and Ken and it was great fishing for a half day the bite was very good .We landed a bunch of fish on streamers and nymphing rigs. We didn't take a ton of pictures mostly because both these guys catch a lot of Trout and so quick releases were the norm for the day. Biggest Brown was 17" smallest was 5" and some nice Steelhead were landed and lost. These warm water Steelies have NOS systems hooked up compaired to Winter and cold water Spring steelies. Some dries are poping off and a few fish are rising to them, mostly smaller fish is all I have seen eating them..
I have a bunch of good dates open to guide. If intrested in a trip give us a call and well wet a line. The Trout are really happy with the water temps and flow is perfect. I would say the river is full joy conditions wise.
