    Couple fish from yesterday. We threw a few smaller browns back. There's finally an egg bite now instead of the way I've been normally getting them. Nice to see a coho in my neck of the woods too. Skunked all morning and then that snow storm moved in and went 7/10 in like 2 hours. Broke off one of those browns and then caught it an hour later and got my bag and leader back.

    I've been catching LRB steelhead @ an 8:1 ratio. Great spring brown fishing lately, for sure!

    Verrrry nice brown! Photos can be tricky, especially that angle! What did it weigh?

    Just wondering what the limit is out of the pier and lakes for trout and salmon? Mostly fish rivers except chasing salmon. Thanks.
