I love winter steelhead season. I especially like chasing winter steelhead after my duck/goose season has ended. From now, until the first spring Chinook start to arrive in my backyard, I can totally focus and concentrate on getting my clients, family and friends (and myself!) into the greatest game fish that swims!
Watertime Outfitters guide, Rob Crandell with a beautiful winter steelhead he caught while out with me last week.
Some folks at ODFW recently told me that we have some very strong runs of winter steelhead up and down the coast right now. High water kept many anglers from fishing through most of December and January so lots of fresh winter steelhead have been able to make their way into the stretches of water that I typically fish with the swung fly. Its going to be a great February and March!
The past few weeks have given us multiple fish days so grab your gear and lets GO!
I have openings so give me a shout.
