"Wading knee deep in the first run of the first day, I moved with extreme caution due to the significant hang over produced from a bit too much bourbon the night before. While this by no means aided on my casting, I will say that my slower-than-normal reactions absolutely saved my ass when a nice fish decided to rip my fly at the tail end of the pool." - Tucker Ladd

Seven anglers fish for steelhead for three days - nine hours each day. It is a do-it-yourself trip. Fish counts are at 60% of the 10 year historical average. On day four, three anglers fish for 2.5 hours. A total of 13 steelhead are hooked. What is the average “rod time” on the water required to hook a steelhead? First winning answer posted here on the blog wins a signature Trout’s Fly Box.
Casting for Recovery is another reason we volunteer.

The Olympic Peninsula is the westernmost point of the contiguous United States and is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and to the east by Hood Canal. It is also home to big and wild steelhead.
