3 Guys, 2 Days, 1 Fish – let’s hear it for steelhead.

I spent a little bit of time on the Grand River this weekend. In theory the conditions were supposed to be “favorable” for some epic fishing.

However, in reality the nice weather brought out the unwashed masses on Sunday and the tough conditions made Monday a little less than optimal.

For some reason, be it the sun or the fishing pressure on Sunday there wasn’t anything happening for ANYONE on the river. We shared a lot of boo-hoo sob stories with a lot of the people we ran into. Monday,even though it was national holiday, was devoid of the unwashed masses, but alas, also mostly devoid of fish. We ended up with only one Steelhead brought to hand over two days.
The fish in question was landed by Ron at 8:00 am on Monday morning.

Overall, that’s steelheading.

If it was easy, everyone would do it.

A conehead shiner pattern fooled this one into a strong take.
