The Cowlitz River Summer Steelhead Fishing Trip

on Monday our Crew hooked up with a buddy of mine that is a fishing guide and set out for a Summer Steelhead Trip that I Won on an OA2 Auction a year ago, and to say the least … we had the time of our lives, as the weather was beautiful and the fishing was hot … the ‘Crew’ consisted my Wife and her coworker and my Nephew and I.

the fishing “Crew” … starting our day off early at 05:15

a big Bald Eagle

a few geese

my first fish of the day

a boated fish

notice the proper finger placement

we saw a lot of wildlife during the day and a few black-tail deer swimming across the river.

my wife’s friend hooked into a nice bright steelhead

my wife’s first fish

she was all smiles after boating that beauty


the catch; we each caught 2 steelhead and my wife’s friend caught 3

The Crew!

this is where all of the fun begins!

I really need to try the summer runs. It would be nice to come home without frostbite for a change. Looks like a great day and awsome fishing. I have some of the worlds best steelhead rivers in my backyard and only made it out three times last winter (damn gas prices).

Wow, what a great day...

I haven't done any fishing since last summer, that has to change!
