Well, I'm envious! I had a real tough season. In four and a half days of fishing pretty hard, my biggest fish was a sixteen inch brown trout - a nice brown in the little creeks near my home, but not what I was looking for up north. Beautiful steelhead - congratulations!

I thought I'd add my own fall recap with the disclaimer that none of these fish were actually caught on flies with a fly line. They were mainly yarn flies, which I'm not sure qualify as "flies", and one came on hardware. Still a nice fall recap though.

Very nice picts and reports guys...

Heres one from "out east" in upstate NY...

Dad and I made about 5 trips up for salmon and steelies. First few trips were mostly salmon with the last few being phenominal for steel... Most fish were caught on egg patterns and a few on big stones...

Heres an up river morning shot. My fathers the 4th dude up.

That river can be a zoo, especially during the salmon runs. With walking you can usually find some solitude. That day we joined the madness at the lower end of the river because a big pod of steel had come in, think I hooked 9 and landed 3 and my dad was 3-7. And they were scary fresh and gobbling up eggs...

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes. 
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
