Just got back from three days on the Salmon River. This fall’s steelhead fishing has been very spotty, so wasn’t I more than pleased to land this magnificent chrome hen a few hours into the trip. Full report to come.
“Do I look fat in this picture?” Yes, dear, you do, and bless every single one of your powerful pounds. She took me into into backing in just a few seconds.
P.S. Inquiring minds will want to know, “what fly?” Size 10 60-Second Copperhead.
Nice Fish Steve. Joel & I are headed up for 4 days and going out with Jim on our 2nd day.Where did you float Altmar to pineville?Joel and I like to walk & explore any sugestions on where we might find some fish and a few less people?
Glad you had a good trip cant wait for the full report
Thanks, Carl. I told Jim you guys were en route. We floated Altmar to 2A. One of the benefits of your float will be that Jim will point out lots of places for you to fish along the way. If you want to talk, give me a call.
What a spectacularly stunning fish! Did she jump at all? Either way that is a great way to start off a trip, I can’t see it getting any better from there though! 😉
No big leaps, but two line-burning runs. I’m with you — I told Jim I don’t care if I get another hookup today after this one. 🙂
