Family Fishing

I took the family for a quick float to the estuary the other day from the house, Jocelyn hooked some nice trout. The pic shows her casting from the boat, not a bad cast for someone who rarely does it! She hooked 4 nice cutthroat & one immature Steelhead just over a pound, I guess it didn't like the ocean and decided to come back after a year! We're still waiting for the mature summer run Steelhead to show up in the Campbell River, soon I hope. The pinks will be arriving in 2 weeks! I'd like to have some Steelhead fishing before the salmon show:) We encoutered what I guess was a Summer Steelhead over on the west side of the island while guiding the other day. The fish was in the deepest part of the pool (10ft deep under fast water) along an undercut bank so it was impossible to temp him to a fly, next time I hope!
