We went into our final 3 days of fishing with still not ideal water conditions. Some boats managed to pick up a few trash fish and a couple lucky ones with some steelhead. As usual, great times and memories were made on the river though!

Thursday 3/10

We had 4 boats out today. Cassea Daughtery on Brenna Montgomery’s boat with Rich and Paul was the lucky steelhead catch of the day with a wild one.

Laurell Lawson’s boat caught a sucker fishy and a fun time with Brian and Colt.


Would you say this was probably a pee stop?? Pee Stop selfie! 🙂


Fish concentration game…STRONG!

Colt loves fish…
