lots of options and good fishing
I've fished the last couple of days on the eel and fishing was up and down but not, I believe, due to lack of fish around. The day before yesterday was slow as we only landed one fish. Talking to other guides on different rivers and different floats on the river I was on led me to believe fishing was tough everywhere. The fish just didn't seem to be in the mood. Yesterday was a different story altogether. We ended up hooking 10 while landing 7 steelhead, a mix of chromers and spawed out fish. These fish were on fire when on a hook too. Again, talking to other boats on other rivers, fishing seemed to be good across the board.
With no perceptible rain in the forcast, there are a ton of great steelheading opportunities to finish the season off with. I have plenty of space for the last week and a half of the season, so if the mood strikes, lets go fishing!
