Steelhead Season 2009 - Week 6

FINALLY...

Despite the low water and clear conditions, we finally got into some fish...

Not that the fishing was spectacular...but we did manage to kick up a few fish in our travels over the last few days...

Mike hit the door again for the second weekend on Friday night, and we were up early on Saturday...and headed East...

















As the sun rose up, we began to realize that the skinny waters were way to clear and low. A complete change from last weekend...

Anyways, we moved around a bit and Mike finally found a willing taker...












Unfortunately we were unable to fish through the afternoon, but we sent Mike home with a better feeling then last week at least...

Sunday Justin and I hit the river for the first time in a LONG time. We decided to let the morning circus move away from the spots, and the fish settle back down. Still dealing with low, clear water, we were forced to trek for the deeper runs and slots...

Finally, fish for TMT!



And Justin managed a November Smallmouth to boot...


Not that the picture does it justice, but I promise that the fish fought alot bigger then it was...

HOWEVER, despite the better fishing, we're facing a long road ahead. There's FEW fish in the rivers, and with minimal rain in the forecast, there's a fat chance that we'll see a fresh run soon. Looks like there maybe some surf casting in the future...

Till next time...
