The Magic of February -pre-spawn Dino-red banders

The stage is set . 4900 cfs. A winter warm up.This is a February gallery of what could be had . Dino-donkey double red banders that are love sick for action despite 34F water temps. They jump from the shy selective pool pacifists, to aggressive police protecting their turf. Our biggest steelhead come from this pre-spawn period. Let the red band trophy hunt begin! B.C. sized steel ready to crush a deep swinging fly, nymph or egg pattern with a vengeance- it's all good stuff!- bucket list time!
