The weather has continued to be very unpredictable but dang, we have been catching fish, ladies! Ya’ll have been determined and it is so fun to see! Leader board changes and new leaders every day.

Valentine’s day

For the ladies that spent it on the river was a good one…..Forgive them significant others 😉 Wanda Clagg’s group reeled in 5 steelhead for the day, Wanda had two of those and it puts her into 2nd Place Most Fish!

Brenna Brown’s all caught steelhead! Brenna and Courtney’s actually landed them on our leaderboard too! Brenna is in 4th Place for Most Fish and Courtney is in a tie for 4th Place Biggest Fish!

This day was extra special for these ladies, they dedicated this trip to some lost loved ones. Brenna’s dad passed away last October and he was an avid Steelhead fisherman and she was daddy’s little girl. Her first steelhead of the day, was not only her first steelhead ever and first on the boat for the day but it was tribute to dad, was a very emotional moment on the boat. Brenna’s best friend Amanda also lost her brother and grandpa within the last while and she got herself a steelhead too.

To top it off, they almost cancelled because the roads were supposed to be really bad and roads had been closed so they were worried about getting here or…..getting stuck here! Everything about this trip was meant to be! It means a lot to us that we are helping to create these memories and thank you Bre for sharing.

From Bre’s email:  It is my 6th year of coming up for WWB and I will be a life long participant.  BUT  this will forever and always be the most memorable and the greatest. WWB this year was much much more than just a fishing trip with our best friends,  it was a tribute to a man that meant the world to me.  Thank you for all that you guys do to make this possible.  Also, thank YOU for easing our worries about the roads, I’m glad we didn’t cancel!!!

Bre’s first steelhead, ever, and the one that goes to dad!
