Mid-March Hen Steelhead
March was really wet, but we caught an awesome break in the weather, mid-month where we had all the steelhead action we could handle
Shane with a Glorious Chrome Steelhead
A stellar steelhead specimen. One of four landed in a single run.
Closing Day Steelhead
Bob had the honor of fishing March 31, the last day for smaller coastal streams. He finished up 2 for 4 on a walk-in trip. Not too shabby!
What We Live For...
Somedays the Oregon Coast can not be touched anywhere... This pig was just one landed during a solid double-digit day.
First steelhead of the morning
The most exciting fish of the day is usally the first. On good water days, it doesn't take very long.
Nestucca in April
Owen displays a nice April Nestucca steelhead. We battled a lot of high water on the Nestucca in April, but like most of the coast, when it was in shape, it fished great.
Noah's First Fish
Owner Jesse Sampson's oldest son Noah caught his first trout in April at Newport's Big Creek Reservoir. Next time, Noah gets to row!
First Summer Steelhead of the Season
Late April on the Sandy brought with it, high clear water, a few winter steelhead and the first of the Summers.
