Sitting here today, hoping this cold front gets out quick along with the wind, and started thinking about past fishing trips. One of the memorable trips was last fall on Elk Creek with a friend (Dan) from the Cleveland area and another fisherman (Ron...a great name ) we met that day on the creek. Ron was really into the steelhead in a fairly short run and he invited Dan and I to share it with him. We took turns at the hed of the run and caught fish all afternoon, one after another. Finally, that run closed down as the late afternoon sun shaded the stream and fresh fish began to migrate upstream. Dan found a run behind a large flat topped, slightly submerged boulder that produced a fish on each cast provided you landed the fly on the top of the boulder and let it was down. Steelhead after steelhead, some in the 28/29" range with most around 24/26" and all chrome. What an evening, right up to dusk. Dan and I bid farewell to Ron and started our long ride home but talked about the fantastic day and relived just about every catch. Ron and I spoke by phone the next evening and discussed how much fun it was to share the water and the day and wanted to do it again. Unfortunately I lost Ron's phone number and have not been able to see him again on the Elk. Maybe this year when Dan and I start making our steelhead forays again. This trip will always be remembered by me.
