Three of us fished Monday and did pretty good. Got a late start, in fact we didn't even get on the river until around noon. We fished slow holes floating spawn. All fish but one were super fresh chromers, the one oddball was a colored-up drop-back. One of my hens was loose, I hooked her twice. I rolled her the first drift through, threw back out and drilled her on the next drift. We had a double on at one point and almost pulled it off twice. The last fish of the day was pulled from a hole that had already been fished by two other people. We didn't hook a single male, all hens. Here's a few of them:

8lb loose hen that hit twice:


24", 6lb super fresh football:

thanks A/S nice fish....glad to see it...earlier this week i thought i had a steely from casveille...after further review it was a brown im thinking and as far as i have found it was a seeforellen ...im still laughing havent pulled that good of an april fools joke on myself in years...but if any one would know it would be you..the wild rose have more of a football shape and the seeforellen are more atlantic salmon shaped?.....after dark on the peir every one assumed shes was a steely but there are so few caught over here i can see how we all messed it up that night... I even asked a dnr officer he didnt know the difference in the strains..

again thanks for helping to hook me on steelheading even though im only catching browns lol ive had a ball and your advice along with a few others has really helped.......my average brown from oct to now is over 14lbs I love ever minute of it,,with 2 fish over 20lbs

I'm not sure which river your thinking, but it is a pretty fun stream to hit fish, especially on 4lb. This cold spell is gonna slow fish down from spawning, which is good. Hooked up on a few this weekend:
