4-20 What a Day

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by hollandbass, Apr 21, 2008.

  1. Took a trip a good 3 hours away to spend a day on the river, and the GF decided she wanted some torpedo action too. My buddy gave me some tips and directions and they paid off with dividends to say the least... What a day, we hooked into at least 30 fish in about 7 hours and landed a little under half of those. I had a 30+" fish jump 5 or 6 times in a row and lost an honest 12lb hog right at my feet to boot, after about 15 minutes of tangling with him. We still landed some good fish; the photos are a bit ominous as we were constantly on the move.

    Jigs/maggot got some fish and spawn and single eggs worked well also, but don’t be afraid to experiment.... grin
