I spent close to a week and a half down on our Humboldt County rivers. I started out fishing the South Fork Eel for four days where fishing was ok. 2 to 7 hookups a day was the range here. These fish were a mix of downstreamers and fresh fish with a ratio of about 70:30 in favor of downers. I relocated to other rivers starting last sunday due to the excessive crowds on the south fork. My move intitially got me into more crowds unfortunately, but that improved over the week as we made other adjustments. I ended up having my biggest day of the winter on Tuesday as we hooked 16 and landed 11, most of which were chrome bright.
Tuesday evening the rain returned and I was back on the Smith yesterday. Fishing was pretty tough for the day. We put one on the boat and I saw only one other fish hooked and lost for the rest of the fleet, although I did here of a few others caught.
Anyways, here are a few pics I took since the last report. Unfortunately my camera disappeared for a couple of days, so no pics were taken for most of the week. Thats what happens when you have a toddler running around the house!
As a side note, I have an opening for sunday, which looks to fish good for the Smith. Let me know if your interested.
