    I love internet steelhead reports. Its hot. It's cold. Up, down all around. All I really know is I have never landed 25 steelhead in 1 day.

    I too like internet reports, they seem to make and break the fishing in a river.

    Flyfished during the day, gear at night. Here's what some of the night fishing got us:

    All the gear-caught fish, especially the bleeders should go over real good here. Not that any fly-caught fish ever bleed.

    Great pics, I camped at Heller all weekend, I never saw any boats on the river at night.... Maybe these were a little farther down the river. Don't know for sure but judging from the water and lights maybe a little lower in the river, at any rate great pics and
    big fish.

    Tight Lines,

    If you're looking for some straight scoop on the Ronde in addition to fishing it effectively, Mac Huff, a senior guide on the Ronde, will be giving a free seminar at the Orvis store, Saturday at 1PM.

    Two wild A runs. The goddamn bass in the Snake kept hitting the flies we were swinging and annoyed the shit out of us. We bonked the big ones and made some killer smallmouth tacos.

    I hope those weren't smallie-heads.

    That hybrid is a best of both worlds for me and needs to be protected and propegated.

    Quan great fish. Im heading out there the 25th with my dad uncle cousin and grandpa. Seems our annual trip always results in a blown out river or low water. i hope i can get those kind of results!
