Bill Herzog from Salmon Trout Steelheader Magazine recently called me for a few quotes for an upcoming article he is doing on big steelhead. He asked if I’d send a pic of myself in with a big fish, which was a perfect excuse to sift through the archives and do a little steelie dreaming. While drooling over a set of pix from a British Columbia trip several years back, I found this one, my biggest steelhead to date. Remember it like it was yesterday!
Okay kokanee junkies…ready to go troll for some truly giant kokes? You’ve got to check out Washington State’s Brewster and Baker lakes, where there have been some interesting new fisheries developing this summer…The salmon in these lakes aren’t truly kokanee but instead ocean-run sockeyes that are open to fishing for the first time. Check out out pal Bill Herzog’s Zog Blog at Northwest Wild Country for more details and some cool pix. Also be sure to click the “Rasticle” link for some cool rigging photos that should help ya out in future kokanee endeavors.
