Well, despite what I've been reading about the run coming to an end, I decided I'd get out today and find steelhead.

Long story short... I hooked up 13 times, landed a few, kept a pair. Caught a decent hen and male in the morning measuring 22" and 24". Went back in the evening and landed a few more, biggest was 28". The hen was full of eggs when I caught her, she spawned about 3/4 of them out, had enough to make 2 dozen spawn sacs upon filleting her.

Great day on the tributaries. Get out and fish. Its not over yet!







Males were roughed up, most had some battle scars, females were still as chrome as can be.

never think the run is over mike. There will be steel in the systems for 2 or so more weeks. Then it is over. Good job on those steelhead. Im surprised u found some hens with eggs still tho. But I guess that last rain pushed one last fresh batch of fish up the tribs.

LOL, Mike and Keith you guys argue too much! :lol:

Nice Job Cam! Man, I have been thinking Bass and would have thought the run would have been done by now. I haven't even checked TSS for a few weeks now. Great job getting some fish man!

You must've missed it. Here is my report from yesterday:

And why would I go to ktown? There is no May run of chinook. You let me know when you want to go up north like Sheboygan and we can get those July kings
