Wind burnt

The past few days I have been on the water with the one and only Gabe Hillbrand from Hillbrand tackle, Swinging his custom designed jigs for steelhead. Thursday was windy, so after being punished for a few hour with Gale force wind we motor up river to find cover for awhile . As luck would have it we managed to find a couple fish that wanted to come out and play,catching one great looking buck and missing a few others.
  Saturday was a blue bird day. No wind, high sun and warm. motoring up into the same area as the day before proved to be a waist of time with only a couple northerns  that came to the boat, later in the day and downstream a few miles, we found another beautiful buck that smacked a blood leech pattern. with rain in the forecast I would expect good fishing today.
