till the chrome is here. Last year i was catching them the first week of sept. Dee said im sick in the head for wishing cold weather, but i say bring it on. I went and bought 5 doz of minnows befor the price really goes up(shines already raised his minnow price. Threw some salt on them and in the freeze they went..... Does any one have any cool memories from last year they want to share... heres a cool one...... Me and Gobyoneganoby always went steelheading on a wed. They were calling for alot of snow that day out east but it looked good in the morning. so we said lets go... so we travled to our hot spot and a little snow was falling and it was "COLD". finger tip burning cold!!! by the time we walked to our hole the snow was coming down bad to a point we could barley see our floats 10 feet in front of us, and we were the only ones that we knew of fishing on the river that day!!! We each had about 6" of snow on are backs and the wind was blowing like hell... But the cool thing was it was like shooting monkeys out of a tree. That front turned the chrome on like viagra to a 80 year old. Between the both of us we landed about 25-30 fish in that crap!!!! I had alot of people say they dont know if we liked death or we were just die hard fisherman that day!!!!!!
