    My current assignment ends at the end of October and I have several months of down time before my next one. In celebration, I want to take a 3-5 road trip for Steelhead, but not sure where I should go. Thinking about Snake or Clearwater, but anyone have any other suggestions? Also, guides?

    Since moving out here last year, I've done two trips to the OP and had a great time on both. My local Steelhead experience has been limited to NF Stilly and the Sky.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    Give Jeff Hickman a call, or look up his website. www.fishtheswing.com

    He is a really cook guy, and a great guide. Anyone that adopts a goose gosling and raises it, can't be all that bad.

    Give Mike Beard at Orvis NW Outfitters in CDA a call, great fiend of mine and an even better steelheader! I'm pretty sure at least one of his guys is on the Snake right now ...
