headed out thursady morning for steelhead fishing. we stopped along the big lost river along the way to get in some fishing for the day, got into a handful of trout. headed to challis where we had planned on staying for the 3 days but soon found out that the fishing was a lot better quite a bit further downstream so spent the first night tying flies and drinking. got up in the morning and headed upriver to the town of salmon, fished all day with only 1 stupid sucker landed and 1 fish lost. after the day of fishing, got back into town and got a phone call from the fish and game dept. saying that when wal-mart gave us our licsences they screwed up, so had to go to the dept. to get the situation settled. found out where the local hot spot was and spent the rest of the evening getting more [email protected]##y then we should have, it wasn't all bad but i won't say why on this site. didn't get up the morning until almost noon and spent the rest of the day having casting practice, i actually lost one fish, but could not confirm what it was. the next day was more of the same . i guess we were a little early for the bulk of the run so we are planning on it again in a few weeks. got home with enough time to get cleaned up and head to salt lake and support ryan and chris owens for the trout bum diaries showing. had a couple of pitchers with them and will probably be there again tommorrow, mainly to drink. 6 hours, and a couple of hundred bucks to get something besides steelhead, oh well.
