A bit of a slow down this week due to river conditions taking a turn again. Ice and LOW LOW water! We were able to stay at Spring bar for a day then we most of the boats had to go over the hill to Hells Canyon and a couple boats did stay at Hammer Creek. But again, much slower on the catching ,unfortunately.
3 boats at Spring Bar today. We had Jennifer Ingraham’s group with Sam and Justin. Madi Ingraham landed a 23″ hatchery for the only steelhead on the boat today. And, Angela Padley off Stacey Jone’s boat landed a wild fish!
Nicole Doty’s group down at Hammer Creek with Rob and Billy, had Tiuana Hensley landing a HUGE wild fish! Billy says it’s the biggest fish he has had the pleasure of netting, super cool! This would be the only steelhead caught today..Our other boats did have some luck catching sturgeon and some trash fish though, so didn’t go completely with nothing hooked.
Tracy Bramwell’s crew in Hells Canyon with Brian and Paul had Tina Kelley landing a wild steelhead. Also, in Hells Canyon Kate Barne’s Baited Babes Team fished with Jake and Malachi. Kim Wood reeled in a 30″ hatchery fish!
The Reelin’ Rebels team with Rusty & Colt didn’t catch any steelhead but one big sucker and a good time!
Over in Hells with Rusty and Colt was the Bitch’s team, they reeled in few big sturgeon and some other trash fish. All the ladies fishing in Hells Canyon today dealt with some major wind which really makes fishing for steelhead difficult but they tried really hard for a good portion of the day! Thanks for your grit ladies!
Heather Borzick’s crew didn’t land any steelhead at Hammer Creek with Rob & Billy but they did have a great time!
Kendall Ridgley’s team didn’t have any luck with the steelhead with Rich and Malachi at Spring Bar but also had fun stories!
Over on Kathreen’s Steiners boat, we had some local gals fishing with Sam and James! Sandi DeVeny was quite the lucky catcher, Landing 2 wild fish, and the biggest stick fish!
Just one boat out today, Babette Monroe’s crew fished with Brian and Paul moving back to Spring Bar. Michelle Pruett landed a wild fish and that was it for the steelhead today!
