Coastal Rivers Steelhead and Salmon

Charlie and Brady couldn't help themselves.  They headed out in the pouring rain for a day of salmon and steelhead fishing before the predicted storm makes the coastal rivers unfishable for a few days. A fun couple of hours landing 2 large steelhead and a salmon, all returned to the river.  What will they do for the next few rainy days?  I'll keep you posted.

Winter Steelhead Fishing on the Sixes River

 
You've got to love the gauge on the Sixes river (oh the simplicity of spray paint and a boulder)! The river has been hovering just below 2 feet for days. Eve and Brady had some luck yesterday running plugs for winter steelhead.  A fun day of catch and release.
