    I love that spoon dangling from that fish's mouth; it even looks like one of the el cheapo spoons. Seems like a good mix of hatchery and wild to me. You can tell there's a decent number of hatchery fish near the end. Looks a little like a certain WA river.

    Hey guys, Thanks for the positive reviews of the steelhead piece. Not a lot of story there, just a lot of fish. We did not see a lot of hatchery fish that day. The river had received a ton of fishing pressure last winter since the Methow was running hot, as you all know well.
    steel bull.jpg We swam the day after closing and filmed for about an hour. Very heartening to see a legit school of steelies after years of seeing and filming one or two at a time. I'm surprised none of you spotted the hog Bull Trout at 55 seconds. Take a look, he's a freakin' bruiser. Also a corkie is visible in the last scene still doing it's job after being lost.
    It looks like the link is busted so here's a link to the piece.

    I saw that corky hanging out in the middle of nowhere. Almost looks like you guys were fishing while filming, but I figured that wasn't the case.

    Upon seeing that big bull, I figured it was the river mentioned above. Call me old fashioned, but I feel nervous naming rivers like this, especially when there's a school of wild steelhead, a landmark, and a big bull involved. Not blaming any of those that do, though...

    I subscribe to the FB page- no secret when it's plainly posted there for all to see ;)
    I saw the big bull trout when I first watched it- love those fish a ton!

    Great shots. Really makes me wonder what the fish are like in my local spots. Amazing to think that some of those have been around for a number of years through quite a few battles. Kind of like gear-mouth there ;)

    Let the natives go! Catch em again later!

    I wish I had underwater of all the snorkel floats Ive done down the NF Stilly between Oso and Cicero. Probably snorkeled that river 20 times, from deer creek hole to the hole at Cicero bridge. Ive seen some pretty rad fish while snorkeling.
