    It's Daniels's birthday on Saturday.

    Salmo you should take him on a float as a present and get him a fish

    How many of these were caught while pinning?

    Roughly 40 or so fish. 3 on spoons, and about a bakers dozen on the swing.

    Jesus that's a lot of fish...and lots of natives considering the mandatory kill rules. Are natives more likely to hit what you're throwing on your pin? Some guides swear natives are more likely to rise to a dry fly (deer creek natives in particular) so I wonder if its the same for what you're throwing

    Plenty of hatchery fish died. Many limits were taken.


    In my experience, hatchery fish are much, much more likely to hit on the surface.

    One time I caught a whitefish on a dry fly, it was a native if that helps.

    The wild whitefish coalition movie "Suckerpoints" changed my view of whitefish and now I'm a huge activist to protect our wild whitefish population. I hope you took great care in reviving and releasing that gorgeous specimen.

    I have found wild fish to be super aggressive. This is especially true of wild summer fish. To be honest though I haven't fished a river with a hatchery in a long time and then it was at a time of year when there were few hatchery fish.

    Man, do I love wild summer runs! There just aren't nearly enough wild summer run rivers.

    Go Sox,

    The fish I caught yesterday down the street from my house was a wild summer run. Definitely not what I expected to catch.

    Interesting! Especially this time of year. By chance, did you happen to get a picture of it?

    Despite its haggard/skinny appearance, it put up a really surprising fight. Did a few impressive aerials. Here she is fresh out of the net about to head on her way.

    You and Daniel should catch an open seat with Evan. He's the one fishing in the cold weather and catching all the fish lately.


    That's a lanky fish, even for a summer run. Looks like she could use a meal.

    She thought the same thing. Things didn't turn out how she planned though.

    I wouldn't have even bothered with a photo other than the fact that I wanted to show some fishing friends that I caught that wild summer fish where I did. Wasn't what I was expecting.

    Just waiting on an invite. Although floating with bass turds is great he let's me break his rod tips instead of my own

    I'd be happy to teach you guys techniques. But steelhead fishing is 99% about WHERE you fish, and that's classified information.

    I'm down. I caught more than enough fish to make me happy for the year but want to improve my techniques.

    Also we can swap secret spots too. My spot rhymes with beater.
