Time to Grind

Steelhead fishing on the west coast has been a grind this year to say the least. We had a month with no rain then the rivers blew out and since that point the fish have been making you work hard for your bites.

The past couple weeks I have had customers out on the Klamath, Smith, Chetco, Umpqua, and Rogue rivers and the story has been pretty consistent across the board, tuff conditions with a few opportunities a day. The Klamath has been producing a few more fish a day and the half pounders help to fill the void.

Myself, Robert Perez, and Shane Blair have been working hard for the clients and doing our best to keep those smiles and memories coming. Thx Shane and Bob.
