First Steelhead of the Season

Recommended Posts

I only had a couple hours to fish this morning. So, i headed to my favorite trib and caught my first steelhead the season! I got it on my favorite... the Pink Worm. It was on the first cast too.

Tibbs, one thing I was wondering about....that water you were fishing seems like flat glass with very little current,...not the typical Steelhead water I would be used to....so Im wondering is there faster water near by? an extremely deep hole ? or was it sortof a fluke with cruising steelhead going to their next pool to rest? Im not saying anything deragotory in the least, just curious...cheers

Yep, that was the water i was fishing. It must have been around 6-7' deep and was one of the few pools that i couldn't see bottom. I had to use a small float to get it moving since the current was so slow.

nice fish,,, i like the small pink trout worms.... but that one almost looks like a Senko 5" ?

 

Thanks.

 

I was using a Riverwood pinkworm. They are a lot thicker then the berkley ones but, it's the same length. (3")
