Winter Steelheading in March on the Oregon Coast provides a month of varied steelhead action. One just never knows what's going to grab the end of that line. We caught some hatchery kelts, right along side chrome natives and fresh broodstock hatchery fish. Numbers of native fish seemed about averge. We caught good numbers of wild fish but not the crazy ridiculous fishing for hatchery brats we had in February. However, we would gladly trade a handful of hatchery fish for a shot at big natives over 15lbs. We hooked a few and landed one monster that made the month worthwhile. We finished up with a month-long average of 6-7 hookups for the boat in a day, nymphing most of the time and swinging some too when conditions were good. Sure beats working for a living. God bless Oregon, we love our State.
Thank you to all who joined us this 2009-2010 season, making it our most fun and best season ever!
We'll be fishing the Sandy and Nestucca for the rest of April and then start thinking about Summer Steelhead on the Clackamas and trout on the McKenzie. To arrange a guide trip for Spring and early Summer action, give us a call at 503-515-3533 or email us!
