We went into the Final Weekend with some really nice weather, beautiful days but not so great fishing, for steelhead at least. Those trash fish were biting like crazy but we just didn’t get into many steelhead. Amy O’rielly, Becca Kosinksi, and Paula Purdome were some lucky ones to reel in a few wild steelhead! The River held enough for us to finish it out at home on the Salmon at least though which we all love.

We bounced right into Fish Dance down at Seven Devils!  It was a great night with a great turnout at as always! Thank you everyone that is involved in this tournament and all you ladies for coming back to do this every year! None of it is possible without you!


Thank yous!
