Sifting Through Trash For Feather Steel

Earlier this week I fished the Feather again for the ever elusive steelhead. I wanted to give the high-flow section another try since the low-flow section has been packed with anglers in almost every run. I stuck to swinging my Sculpinno the entire day as I worked my way up the Oroville Wildlife Area. Although I didn't hook any steelhead I caught fish.

Yellow Steelhead

From past experience I've found that spring-run steelies like to hold in the high-flow section more than their fall-run cousins. After this trip I'm going to call it quits on steelhead fishing until the salmon die off. I wonder if I'll be more successful once the salmon are gone...
