Wow, there must be something going on with the moon or ?? I caught my first steelhead ever this afternoon on the NF Stilly. It was a 6-7 lb buck, very dark but quite feisty. Gave me the bulldog treatment for 15-20 minutes after the initial leaping and zipping 100 ft of line off my reel. The setup: 9' 9" 6wt w/ intermediate sink clear lake line (!!) and a DDickson fly left over from a guided trip I took last year. You may guess that I was not targeting steelhead . . .and you would be quite right. Surprised the crap out of me, actually. I guess there is a bit of good 'ol dumb luck involved even with the mighty Steelhead! I'll post a picture when I get it . . .which brings up another point. I wouldn't have been out on the river today if I hadn't met up with another member of the site and made the two car/shuttle arrangement to allow a float trip. He also had a digital camera to get a photo while my camera was 100yds upriver in my raft. THIS SITE CAUGHT ALLOWED ME TO CATCH MY FIRST STEELHEAD!! Yee-hah.
