My buddy and I started at the hatchery at light. We decided to move quick and cover as much water as possible. Just down from the hatchery, my buddy got a small bright hen about 5 pounds so we had high hopes. We fished all the way down over the course of the day but no more steelhead. I did hook and lose what I think was a sucker. It was about 2 lbs, but no positive id. One guy I talked to said he caught a native early in the day above hatchery. I don't think I will go back there again this year.

I was bored so I tied some seahawks inspired jigs. I don't think they will catch any fish though.

I went down to with the kid and a friend, we knew the water was going to be high so we went right to the hatchery, at dawn there was a bunch of people piled in, but not one fish was hooked, we decided to cut our loses and fish a couple other spots quickly before we left. we fished for about three hours. The drive down and back takes about 5. That's how fishing goes some times.

My buddy and I fished the lower section first and did'nt get any action so we went up to hatchery. As were pulling up, a couple guys walking out, said only one fish was hooked then lost all day. We still gave it a shot, but struck out like every one else. We moved down river again and I finally had the bobber drop. It ended up being a sucker though. Since it fought good, for a sucker, I took a pic and sent him on his way. A few casts later in same hole my bobber dropped again, but I knew it wasn't a sucker because it burned off a bunch of line. It ened up being a native so he went back in the drink. We fished until dark with no more results.

Slow, slow, and more slow. One guy caught one who was stacked in the line of guys at hatchery. Only fish all day. Water looks good, just no fish. Hatchery worker said only one or two fish a day has been showing up to the fish pond.

My buddy and I fished from the hatchery down. One guy had one at the hatchery and one guy said he lost one farther down the river. I lost one that was in the low teens. Only had it on for a minute or so. We fish all day. I was hoping my buddy would have hooked up since it was his first time there, maybe next time.

So my buddy and I find a drift to our selves and he lets me go first. I'm throwing bobber/jig, he has eggs. I think the drift is a too fast for jigs but I'm lazy so I keep casting. Then, after about 10 min bobber down! It's nice and strong, finally get her to bank and ends up being a native(left pic). My budy says "I have hooked 5 in a row on this drift." So he casts out fish on! He tells me to hurry and cast and not to help him land the fish. So I make 2 casts and fish on again! we have a double. My fish burns off drag down stream which crosses over his fish. As soon as I'm clear of his fish his comes unbuttoned. I get my fish in though. A hatchery hen so I bonk her.
We fish the hole a while long then move on. After fishing the rest of the river, we walk back up river and check out another spot. I let my buddy fish first, then I cast and the bobber drops again! This time its a hatcery buck so I bonk him and I'm done. We move around some more so my buddy can get a fish. He hooks one more but a faulty knot loses the fish.
So at the end of the day I went 3 for 3 and my buddy 0 for 2. An outstanding day in my book. All my fish took a nightmare jig, but I used hot pink for body instead of red. I made the tails a liitle longer because the silvers and chum like them big. I geuss the steelies do also.
