We just experienced some of the prolonged coldest weather here in Western Washington that I can remember.
Frozen everything was the theme the past few days. Propane heaters, hand warmers, hats, gloves and layers of clothing were the rule this past week.
When your hardcore you push forward. That’s exactly what me and my crew did. We caught multiple winter run steelhead everyday this past week. The key to our success…, Side drifting Yarn, eggs, prawns, and beads. All of which caught us fish. 10lb main line, 8lb leaders, size 2-4 hooks, on Fetha Styx light action spinning rods put fish in our fish box. When it’s this cold out remember to slow things down. Your quarry is cold just like you, so SLOW it down
According to the weather man we are headed back to “normal” temperatures and some rain. Once we roll out if this Arctic weather we will again experience another mood change in our winter run steelhead. So adjust accordingly.
Otherwise call me and I will adjust for you and put you on The Fish. I have only two open dates left for December 2013′s early winter run steelhead season. They are December 14th & 19th. Get a hold of me if you want to catch some Steelhead and hopefully learn a trick, or two while your at it. Not to worry about the cold. I do have a working heater on board that really helps keep the spirits up
Plus I will prepare you a HOT BBQ lunch, as well. Hope to see you on the water and FishON!!
Here are a couple of pics from this past weeks guided adventures:
You know winter run steelhead have arrived in your favorite local river, when the air temps dip below freezing in November, here in Western Washington State. I have personally seen 5 winter run steelhead caught, so far this season. The proof is in the pudding…, Their Heeeeerrrre!!! Plus, I have trustworthy reports of many more caught from a few different river systems already :$)
With that stated, the winter run steelhead season is still young and we are at the very beginning of our winter run season. I know your itch’in to scratch off that winter run fix, so let’s get you out on the water.
When you come for a winter time steelhead adventure with me expect a first class experience.
