Fishermen in Oregon start thinking about Winter Steelhead fishing immediately after thanksgiving dinner. As most of you know I am a duck hunter so I typically do not start steelhead fishing until February. This year February 2nd was my day, and the steelhead gave me a warm welcome.
On the 2nd we hooked 7 and landed 5 hatchery fish. On February 3rd we landed 7 and also caught 5 hatchery fish, now this is a pattern I can live with. 🙂
The beautiful water and 55 degree sun shiny days were equally as enjoyable as our chrome bright steelhead catches. I will be steelhead fishing through late march with the help from mother nature, I can only hope that fishing remains as productive as it is right now.
See ya out there on the water…
