My first steelhead trip ever. I hooked four, landed three, and lost two. You'll have to ask John Dunn about the fuzzy math. The last fish was a 27" hen that gave me all I wanted, just before dark. Amazing! I'll be back.

I'm jealous, I really wanted to make it up over the hollidays, but I had to settle for Beaver-run steelhead on spruce creek yesterday.

Hey Jeff, I got into one of those a few years back. They're nice fish!
