We had a nice day fishing small stream Summer Steelhead yesterday! The river was up but dropping fast as our island rivers usually do. My guest hooked & landed 2 Steelhead which we sighted in the pools before hooking them. It's incredible to watch these fish move for the fly! We fishing over one fish with many flies with no interest and then fished a very large pink tube fly which took one cast to hook up... I watched as this fish swam upstream 4 ft to take the fly aggressively! Small but mighty are these wild summer fish, they often leap out of the water and when you think you've tired them out they go crazy again taking runs & jumps. Fishing these fish in a pristine environment tops off a day west coast steelheading:) Today I guided a couple of newcomers to the sport. We floated the Campbell & hooked Some fresh Coho Salmon, Chum Salmon & some nice sea-run cutthroat, another great day on the water!
