Single digit temps this morning when Berk and I arrived to the river. It definitely felt like winter after such a mild start to the winter steelheading season. For the first time in about 10 years I threw in a couple plug rods, just in case my office paws couldn't handle the cold. This chrome hen just slammed a hot.n.tot as I was warming up with a bowl of chili for lunch...bonus! Explored some new water and hit four more steelhead on my float rod. Two of them came from some sweet looking water that I will be dredging with flashy streamers during the next warm up. With dime bright fish like this in the rivers, steelheading should remain strong all winter long!
