Well we all though it would be completely done after the last surge of high water but low and behold there are enough fish around to make a good day. Ed hit the water with me for the last 2 days and hooked a bunch of Seelhead putting a good number of those in the net. Some are in good shape and others look pretty rough but we are happy to be able to still put a bend in the rod in mid May on a year it looked like it would finish up in April.
The end of Spring Steelhead season can only mean one thing, it's time for Alaska!!! June 4 looks to be the date this year, my return date is tbd. Anyone looking to book Fall Salmon or Steelhead dates your best bet is to get them locked in before I go, they can be booked while I am in AK by e-mail or through voicemail, but they could be full by then. As of right now my openings are October 6, 7, 8, 10 then November 3, 5, 6, 10, 13, 15 - 19, 21, 25, 27, 29, 30. Other guides are availbale on dates I am booked so call or e-mail for availability.
Ed is pictured below with a few Steelhead from the last two days including one that pulled the boga grip scale to 15lbs.!!
