Just a heads up to everyone that we are slowly transitioning our blog over to a new site. This is going to allow us to do a little more with photo and video work as well as having some new people contributing to the blog. We have it started but will take a few weeks to get things going in the direction we want. Check it out at http://steelheadonthespey.wordpress.com
Go for the grab1
Fall steelheading is drawing to a close and while there are still some late fall fish pushing in, early winters are right on their heels. Last week saw our first encounter with a bright early winter as well as some halfpounders and a few chunky summer/fall steelhead in the mix. Water temps have dropped and the rivers continue to rise and drop making fishing a little hit and miss. We have pretty much switched over to tips and some larger than usual patterns seem to be doing the trick. I have a handful of days left on the mid-lower Trinity and then switching modes to winter steelhead. With plenty of rain, snow, and wind the last week I am ready for some early winter chrome to push into many of our North Coast rivers. Happy Thanksgiving!
