And You Know it Don't Come Easy

Joel La Follette - Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Pleasant weather this past week had our local steelhead streams a little low and clear. The fresh push of fish we saw last week has slowed a bit, but don’t loose hope the next push is just around the corner. Hopefully, so is some rain...

The coastal rivers seem to be staying in the best shape and producing the most fish. The Clackamas and Sandy are still providing a few fish to lucky anglers. For those that ventured further north to the Olympic Peninsula steelheading was rather productive although crowded from the stories we’ve heard.

With rain in the forecast one can only get more excited about steelheading. March is my favorite month for winter fish. Warming water temps and more wild fish usually showing up make it a better chance to get grabs. Don’t give up just yet if you haven’t landed your winter fish. Nothing good comes easy.

Speaking of not coming easy, Josh and I both escaped to our own separate rivers this last weekend. With water levels lower both of us know to fish a heavier fly in the deeper runs that fish feel more comfortable in. Apparently, great minds think alike because this thought proved to have both of us touch fish on our respective rivers. So for your steelheading tip of the week, low water fish deep, high water fish in close. As always, you can’t catch them from the couch. Unless your couch is inflatable and has oars. #newraftidea?

Trout fishing on the east side of the Cascades has been fairing rather well. Hatching bugs such as March Browns, Blue Wing Olives and Skwalas have been spotted flying around. The Deschutes, Crooked or the Metolius would not be a bad place to spend some time this weekend with nice weather predicted in the forecast. Along with those dry flies I would recommend bring your favorite smaller nymphs to imitate the BWOs and some March Brown soft hackles, which can really put a hurt on those hungry trout. If all else fails put a streamer on that looks like a sculpin and hold on.
