My Steelhead outing with the Cascade Family FF group was not what I was expecting.
When we arrived at the fish hatchery the sun was shining bright and the road was full of cars…. more anglers than I have ever seen on the river at one time. EEEEK. So I put my waders on, boots on and got rod ready for the chance on the river. By the time I was ready to go the other people from the club announced to me we were moving to a different section of the river because there was no good spots to fish where we were out. We drove down stream a bit into this park, and no place to park our cars. We didn’t even get out of the car, they decided we should move to Clemens Park. Okay there was two spots left to park so that worked out well.
After using the horrible bathroom I headed to the water edge to scope it out. Always a good reminder to use the porta potties before you have your waders on….just an fyi ladies.
It was so beautiful, but definitely very low water level. I casted an egg pattern for a while and then hiked down stream a bit and switched to minnow. I think I got a bump, but it may have been a stick, unsure.
I did practice using my camera above and below the water level which was super fun.
but the true confession is the only fish that was seen by me and all other anglers I spoke to were the ones on this sign.
BUT I HAD SO MUCH FUN… will be back… alone or with my fishing buddies.
