Last weekend report

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by Mepps3, Mar 6, 2008.

  1. Fished the eastside the whole weekend (last). Both days started off with very slushy conditions until it burned off around 11:00. I fished with a couple other guys. We were able to catch fish in the open slots of the slush until it was gone. Everthing was caught on eggs sacks and color did not seem to matter. Here are pictures from the weekend.

    Jeff caught the biggest steehead that I have seen for a couple years.

    Me with a brute that took some effort. Matt had to help me land. It required handing the pin around many tree's and busting up some side ice to drop in and land.

  7. probably but i guess the question would be how did ya get back up it!?
     
  8. We left another vehicle at a down stream access a few miles ;) .
     
  9. I slid down a hill near the rocky a few years ago the same way. Problem was that I hit a hidden root that nearly came in contact with a place that would have been very bad. A bruise on the inner thigh was a reminder not to try to do that again.
