I wish I had today off :(

4/9 - Working the late shift, and knowing that I didn't have to be in the office until 10 or so, I woke up a little after 4am and got started on the root around 6. I was able to put in 3 hours of fishing. Man, that place was packed, especially around the weir. I wasted too much time in the crowd. I saw 1 or 2 confirmed steelhead caught and a good amount of giant suckers.

Around 730 I decided to move further downstream and away from the crowd. Had a fish on very briefly (maybe 5 seconds) and spit the hook. But I was plenty encouraged.

Hooked up and landed a beautiful 7-8lb hen soon after. Those river steelies put up a heck of a battle! Fish was caught on a float, 2 feet deep, running ktown gold.

Tried for a little while longer and then had to hit the road and go to work.
