Birthday Browns & Changing Weather Steel

Last weekend Casey and I had plans to head north for two days of Steelhead fishing, but with the temps dropping, water rising and falling, we were about to call the trip. Last minute we decided to just go for it, so we took off Saturday night, headed to my sisters to pick up the boat and take a "nap" before launching the boat. The fishing was tough, but we each managed a nice fish the first day. Day two we had high hopes, but after pounding every hole with nothing, the trip got progressively quit as the day went on. Finally Casey connected with a fish, sucker spawn and stoneflies were the ticket. Our number was low, but we went 3 for 3, nothing to complain about.

Yesterday was the first day of my upper 20's so we decided there was no better way to welcome it, than to head out for some wild browns. Fishing was winter fishing, but what wild brown can resist a hot collar pheasant tail? We managed a few fish and had the creek all to our selves. Great Morning!
