I am right now enjoying a day off, I also have tomorow off. Man I'm beat. its been awsome, fishing is off the charts. I have 3 days left then I will be heading back down south, cant wait to see my wife and kids. I would like to thank every one that came up to forks, jessica and I cant thank you enough, and we thank every one that fishes with us.
Any way, I have only one deal with washington this season, no 20s, a few High teens, but no 20s. Ill take 18 a day over a 20 any day of the week, but this will be the first steelhead season in a long time with no 20s.
yea, i know no entrys. Sorry, tired. Fishing has been good to great to stupid. I have had several days the past few weeks of 20 plus. I have had a two days that we got 11, and 13, but other that that 17,18,19 has been standard and I had Greg Warner and his crew and we got 24 one day, 22 another. He was also with me when we got 11. i got 21 today. Its just awsome. I have 6 days of fishing left. I am ready to go home, but Ill be glad to come back next march.
Thats pops the most interesting man in the world. Enough said. Fishing is great, water great. We got 19 yesterday, 25 today, and left a pile on the table. We had one place that we made six passes and got six fish, and they are small passes. Not chetco 100 yard runs, Pockets. Pops said I've caught enough, thats a wrap. Cool, but there was more to catch. We just rowed out for a mile. Its been great awsome dudes, and the fishing is good. We also had a few big ones. a couple ugly 18s, and a nice cromer 16 plus.
After my last post, I just got burnt out, I was fishing late, and weather was shitty, But fishing was good. I fished Mike Kierschmier for a couple days, and we got like 16, and 19 for two of the days, then we got blown out for a couple. High snow level, and 4 inches of rain put a hurt on us. After that I had Darrel Rogers for a week, we struggled with high water, still ended up getting like 10 a day, for 4 days, got 13 one of those days, and 8 was the worst. Still great fishing, and if the water would drop out it will be even better. I have had the last 2 days off to be with the family. It has been nice. I was supposed to fish some of my boys from down south, but one of my guys got tied up in indonesia with a bug bite for a couple days. So they are a couple days late. Its all good. I will get back on the horn with updates from here on out
