It hasn’t been the easiest of years for steelhead, but we are still able to find a few most days. Most days there doesn’t seem any reason to get out of bed for first light, the majority of the fish we are catching are in the late morning to early afternoon. We’ve had most of our luck fishing light sink tips with big intruder patterns.
Trout fishing on the other hand has been real good. On the cloudy days we have been getting some good mayfly hatches around 1 o'clock. On the sunny days the caddis seem to be the better bet. There are some size 16’s flying around and still some big october caddis still lingering around. If for some reason the bugs don’t show, a stonefly nymph is never a bad bet under a strike indicator.
