Guiding update Sept 2 / 09

Well as I have mentioned in recent past, we've had a very dry summer! The Rain is here & I'm very excited about some potential great Summer Steelhead fishing this week! As one can see in the pictures above, these summer fish have concentrated into pools in good numbers due to the dry rivers they've encountered for 2 months, staring at blue skies. This is the least I've been on this watershed in one season but my client yesterday really wanted to walk a remote mountain stream away from it all so we went for a look. Well what we saw was very inspiring, one pool alone had over 40 large summer Steelhead in it! Click on the picture above to enlarge them for a better view of what we encountered and enjoy! As I mentioned to my guest yesterday, I see salmon regularly swarming in the home pool but when I see Steelhead like the pictures above it's a different deal for me all together! A beautiful sight indeed, hope to be back later in the week when the waters up to skate one up on a dry:)


  1. Amazing sight fishing !
    That's wonderful to see that much steelies swimming in one pool .
    Did they bite ?

    Take care .


  2. Hi Adrien, thanks for visiting the site! The Steelies are concentrated due to extra low water on the island these days... Great sight to see hey, we weren't going to attempt to catch one of these fish due to their location in the river making them next to impossible to hook! My client did however make a cast or two because he'd never had an opportunity to catch a steelhead before but as you could imagine an un-experienced caster made short work of it which resulted in swarming fish! We're now getting rain thanks goodness:)
