Great Lakes Steelhead
« on: April 02, 2013, 07:18:34 AM »






Had a great weekend chasing steelhead in the Salmon River tributary of Lake Ontario.  Had lots of fish on and the snow was gone from the banks, so only post holed in the woods.  This is a regular trip for me from Sept.  until April.  I also catch large browns, domestic rainbows and King and Coho salmon.  The sunset pic was taken at a mouth of a creek entering the main lake.   The hot fly this weekend was a fly I got in a  Kern River Forum fly swap developed in Ca. by a fellow named Mike Mercer. It's called the Psycho Prince and a bunch are getting tied and going in my box. :clap:  I know they work well on the Trinity.  I have many fantastic  fishing oppurtunities in my region, and close in to home, yet every year we plan and save to come to the Sierras. And every year it's heartbreaking when we leave. Some day we won't.   Everyone has their special places, I'm glad this forum is here to share that.

Nice looking steelhead trout charlie!  A great shot of the sunset too!  And a chance at King and Coho salmon?  Does not get any better than that!  Thanks for the report.

OMG, that is beautiful, oh, I mean both the fish and the sunset.  You've got me smiling, Charlie!
Let me wake laughing from a nap in the afternoon under the aspens in the fall.
