|Brand New Steel.|
Early Season Steelheading is a great, but not always for numbers of fish to hand. Early fish in the Colombia river drainage come in waves of good numbers of wild fish. But finding them is usually even more unpredictable. That only a small fraction of the run has entered the waters we fish. This makes finding one even more enjoyable to me. Work hard and your time and experience will turn into little bits of Steelhead fishing gold.

Now that I have said that, the real reason I am talking early season is that it is a great way to get all the tackle out and fitted that you have not likely used for 8 to 10 months. See what condition your leaders and tippet are in. Maybe take a look at you running line. or even CLEAN your lines. Organize your fly boxes and just take in a peaceful river… Which ever one you chose to fish.
