I just got off the phone with my pal Gill McKean of West Coast Fishing Adventures in Terrace, B.C. and he told me I should hop on a plane immediately and head for Canada, where he has been absolutely whacking big steelies to 20 pounds like the 20 pounder above (on flies!) and lots of rainbows.
“It’s been nuts, eh!” said Mckean. “The other day I had 4 guys out and they had a fish hooked up literally on every cast! Of course, it’s not always like that, but we have been having some awesome late-season fishing.”
Unfortunately, I can’t make it, but I’d love to! While Gill’s done for the season, I bet he’d listen to all offers if you wanted to head up there for a last second shot at glory. He didn’t say as much, and I don’t want to put words in his mouth, but if you can put a group together, I’m sure he’d fit you in!
