Mission Accomplished!

Frank and I set out today with the goal of getting each of our boys their first steelhead. Mission accomplished! What a gift today was. Memories that will last a lifetime. You can see some video footage and more pics on our Family Lines facebook site. Click on the link in the lower right corner of this blog page.

Get yours!

Wenatchee steelhead fishing has been good, they are throughout the system now. Black, blue, pink, purple, red, orange, flies, jigs, they all have been working. Switching your stuff up isn't bad as long as it isn't so often that you're never in the water long enough to catch anything! The key ingredients as always are location and presentation. If you're drifing a jig or a fly off an indicator getting down near the bottom of the river is key. As water temps begin to drop the fish aren't going to work as hard to get to your fly, you've got to bring it to them. Get out there, put some experience under your wading belt, study the water, and get yours!

Good times on the Wenatchee this morning. Water was up a bit but we decided to throw the boat on for a few hours. Good news was that Mikey hooked up his first steelhead just shortly after catching a nice bull trout. Bad news was that it ended up being an LDR. Next time Mike... that fish is yours! We'll be back.
