I have been at some med sized tribs this week with very good results, lots of steelhead and a brown caught today by tom. the water was very clear and tough to fish, but we switched to smaller Hairballs
We went back to the catt as it is the only game in town for now, all I can say is wow what a day. I haven't seen the numbers of kings in the river like this for a very long time. The water was off colored and up a little and very fishable, the kings were spawning, jumping and moving all over. We did catch some steelhead along the way and all of the fish were taken on egg patterns.
Jeff and I hit the catt today, the weather man said we might get some rain in a narrow band by the lake shore. The freaking rain came down so hard we had to seek refuge under some trees to stay some what dry. The fishing was good with 5 hook ups and only one landed, all the fish took egg patterns. We swung all morning with no results, so we went to eggs and bam fish on.
