Well, it's April 2019, and I've been on all of the southern Oregon Rivers' chasing winter steelhead. I started January 10th, 2019 and have pretty much fished everyday until now.
The only reason I am in front of my computer finally downloading pictures is because we are having one heck of a storm that is pounding Southern Oregon and it has turned all of the rivers from fish-able to not-fishable.
I wish I could have snapped a picture of every single one of these beauties that have hit the net thus far. However, most of the seasoned clients who love the sport, believe in conservation and not touching or harming the fish if it's going to be released. In turn, a lot of the steelhead that we've caught this year have been released without even leaving the water.
The ones that we keep though, are perfect candidates for a beautiful picture.
