    Hit a west side river this AM searching for some salmon, but came up empty on them, but I did manage to take home this 5lb, 29" planted buck steelhead (missing right pelvic) at 6AM.

    Threw these Arctic Spinners from 4:30 until 8:00, but the version on the left was the only one that produced action (2 hits).

    Water level is a good 12" lower from what I saw.

    Fished 3 nw rivers the past 7 days. First 2 had a few fish to play around with the third had tons. Threw spins, cranks and Bob n guts. All took fish but guts worked the best. Orange seemed to be best for me with double hot red stuff taking 2nd. Also tried a nw pier and got a limit very fast chasing schools. When I got up and fished this morning the holes tha had been producing were empty. Im done for now, gotta spend some time with the family. Go gents

    At the campground cleaning station there's a lot going in the trash...right place - right time.

    Last year had problems finding skeins...this year tons available - go figure. What's next year gonna be like?

    That's what I thought, just wasn't sure. Thanks! Will be there after next weekend. Will try to post a report without being to specific.
