Rocky 21/ fish surprise

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by ying6, Dec 23, 2007.

  1. Well hooked up with Wes for a good day on the Rock. One of those days no matter what hole I was hot. Ended the day with no JOKE, 25 + fish. Worked with a guy who hadn't fished for them much and we ended the day with a nice double. Check out the picture... top fish was 19, the steal was 27...

    sooo the rocky isn't blown like the other rivers?... I was under the impression it was unfishable right now... guess i know where I am headed wed. but it is hard for me to steer away from my fav tribs in the east... decisions decisions... well i am taking a first timer out i hope he hooks up with a fiesty one no matter where we go...
     
  6. I'm guessing this was a couple days ago, but I'm not sure. It was definitely blown today, but it's not as blown as the other rivers. The west side didn't get as much rain and it didn't have as much snow on the ground.
     
  7. Archman you are correct it was Friday. Mike said river was great. He was using jig and maggots mostly. Said it really did not seem to matter fish were everywhere and hungry. I missed out i was supposed to go and could not. Bummer!!!
     
  8. Mike,

    I'm glad you had such a great day. I wish I could have joined in on more of the fun, but some days you have it and some days you don't. You couldn't have asked for better river conditions though. It was nice fishing with you again. I'll let you know about this week once I get home and check out the rivers Merry Christmas.

  9. that is a nice brown, i am curious, when my dad was steelie fishing for the first time a few weeks ago he saw what he said look like a brown rising. are they a particularily rare occurance, or just not common enough to bother fishing.
