What a weekend we had, a lot of boats out every day and big fish with big lead changes!

Kicking Friday 2/22 off with Dawn Christian’s boat, bringing 3 nice steelhead in! Dawn landed a 32″ Hatchery which also lands her in 4th place Biggest Fish! Dusty Preece’s Team, Running Upstream, had a fun on the water and just one steelhead but it was a whopper! 36″ Hatchery Steelhead for Dusty which slides her into 1st Place Biggest Fish!! Our other boats out caught some wild fish and some trash fish!

We started having the snow storms move in Saturday and Sunday, so our fishing was a bit slower for the steelhead, But Glenna McClure’s boat found a nice honey hole and got 5 steelhead at Spring Bar. Rest of the boats had some luck with a few wild fish and definitely a good time! Rich’s boat on Saturday had a special treat too and they seen a Bobcat on the river, super rare thing to see and Devin managed to snap some epic pictures! Then on Sunday, Mike’s boat got to spy the mountain lion, Devin did get a short video of that too, check it out HERE! We also had a WWB longtimer, Judy Bauer. She has been coming to us for 18+ years, she was also the one that came up with the great idea for the food drive this year! She loves this community and we so appreciate you Judy!
