Smallies, not Steelhead

Smallies, not Steelhead

We got skunked steelheading.  No worries, as the smallmouth fishing was cooperative!  This weekend, Mike and I headed to a local tributary to target drop back (post-spawn) steelhead.  With bright sun and clear, low water, we never saw a steelhead.

The trees may start to bud and the flowers may start to pop their heads in the gardens but the arrival of Smallmouth Bass is a good measure of warm weather to come....

Now Is The Time For The Big Fish

Now Is The Time For The Big Fish

Spring seems to have sprung early this year.  If you are waiting until April to catch these big bruisers, you might miss the opportunity all together.
