    A buddy and I hit a small NW tributary today. Neither of us hooked up but we did see one good sized steelhead. I believe we were a week or so early for this tributary; historically we hook our first steelhead around Halloween. We should have went further north.

    I got skunked with my pin on the Ausable, yesterday. Fortunately I caught 3 Steelhead bottom-bouncing. ;)

    Fishing on the heels of spawning boots is where its at right now.

    Hooked a few hot chromers this weekend on a nw trib, lost em both, but the trout I caught made my trip.

    The river I fished had to many kings the section i was in. Seemed like once a few die then more steelhead will be there. I’m sure better numbers were closer to LM. I did hook some steel but lost em. Trying to re train my hand after battling fish on 17#. I did lose a pb, hog, damn thing was as big as a salmon, chrome and spunky. I did land 2 14” bows. Fished 2 different rivers, both had some fish just have to work for em. All were on beads
