Winter wading fun in the snow – fishing for steelhead isn’t always about how many fish you catch. Sometimes it’s just about escaping the crowds and spending some quality time with the river. For the DRYFT waders crew, this crisp, cold, and damp winter day was just that.
With a last hurrah spring steelhead is going out with a bang. We saw some great fish this winter and spring, but are looking forward to trout, bass, and other warmwater exploits soon.
Stay tuned for product updates soon, along with some new shirt and hat designs for summer.
Winter steelhead season is in full swing in the PNW, and even though Puget Sound rivers are closed down across Washington state now the opportunities continue throughout the area. From BC to California, March and April hold promise for big hard fighting winter steelhead.
Steelhead season has already been pretty good to us here. A few fish here and through spread thoughout a few fishless days (ok, quite a few fishless days) has been the norm.
We explored some new water.
We swung flies. We fished float rods and spoons too.
We saw a few fish.
We’re looking forward to a good rest of the season.
The winter of 2014-15 brought challenging fishing conditions to the Pacific Northwest. Warm wet weather early saw most of the areas usual snow fall as rain, which led to more blown out rivers than normal, and then a switch to dry warm weather turned the rivers low and clear. To get their steelhead fix, the DRYFT crew was forced to not only range farther abroad and visit locations from the coast of Oregon up to BC, but also to employ a broad range of tactics- from getting a little dirty during low clear flows to swinging overly large intruders in colored up water. This is Winter Wandering for steelhead in the Pacific Northwest.
