Check out Tim’s absolute beauty! Holding his translucent crystal chrome steelhead along with his son Andrew.
(Andrew with the biggest of the day)
Well it might not be the prettiest of the day but it was the biggest weighing in at 14lbs on the boga grips. You can tell Andrew’s kinda bummed by his expression in the photo…ha..ha! Great job Andrew!

This young male steelhead fought like a 20-lber with his aerial assault in full effect! Awesome fight!
(Tim with the last chrome steelhead of the day)
Really nice to see several nice chrome steelhead brought to the boat today by Tim and Andrew. Great sign of whats to come!
Good numbers of steelhead are in the river system now with several more on the move in the cover of high dirty water. Water temps are hovering around the 36 degree point with the cold spell to hit this week holding water temps in place. Next week’s warm up coupled with rain and warmer nights will help water temps to climb that magic 42 degree ideal spawning temp. Looks like we’re only a few weeks away from the start of the spring steelhead run!
