    Finally there seem to be some winter fish showing. My partner and I had three hookups on Saturday, with two landed. I hit this nice 36 inch buck and Steve (silent observer of this board) had an equal size hen. I also lost another buck after a few seconds.

    We witnessed some gear guys catching fish too, all natives. The fish seemed pretty spread out: we got one at Buck Island and one up high near Startup. Both happened to come on heavy purple leeches. The water is in great shape.

    Here's a low-res pic for those who are interested. I think this is the first Sky winter fish posted this year? If so, that should help my street cred.

    Oh great, I was going to try the salt again, but I'll be heading upstream now. Nice hook up.

    We also fished Sunday wth nary a pull, although we saw one fish landed (and bonked) on gear. On Saturday we saw some gear guys land a nice wild hen and release it; I told them they were my heros. The same trio claimed to have just released a 20 lb plus buck, but that was before we got there. I haven't seen a really big fish like that out of the Sky in a few years.
