DRY FLY STEELHEAD?

22 inch steelhead on the gray drake spinner fall last night!...fish was smashing drakes with unusual enthusiasm...spraying water!...usually a good sign of s drop back steel chomping back down to the lake.....it was a spawned out hen that still had one egg in her when I picked it up for a shot...took me into the backing three times on 4x flouro and lifted anchor for a good chase...plus several nice 14-18 inch browns....if you want these dry line steels, they love to hang out in the deep troughs behind sucker beds and eat sucker caviar by day and drakes in the evening....the drakes are so thick that the ducks, geese and swans are scooping them up in their bills. Never really seen that before...cheers!
