Kings and Steelhead

We started out the day float fishing skein for Kings and the bobbers were dropping, after picking up a Steelhead in the mix we were motivated to get after them.  The next thing you know the kicker motor was running and we had another Steelhead within minutes back bouncing, now we are real excited thinking it's go time but that was to be it until later in the day after switching between fishing for Salmon and hitting the occasional likely spot for Steelhead finally picking up one more.  There are not many Steelhead around yet but the fact there are any at all in these low water conditions is promising and with the amount of Salmon on spawning gravel it's only a matter of time before the scent of eggs draws them in if we don't get the water we desperately need.  Brian is pictured below with a nice skein eating King and a couple Steelhead from today.
