Final Steelhead Trip of 2010 Report

As always we had a fun time fishing in Baldwin.  Water temps were around 35 and water conditions were low and clear.  We fished hard and had a few pulls but no fish to hand.  Nevertheless, we learned a lot more about swinging flies in tough conditions and there were a few fish in the river (we could see them as we floated over the hole after we fished it).  I expect if they get some more water in the system the bite will turn on.  Also, the clear water allowed us to see some of the PM's monster brown trout, which quickly directed our thoughts to streamers and terrestrials.  The PM gets a lot of attention for its steelhead and salmon but it is an equally outstanding brown and rainbow fishery.  Anyway, going back up in February 2011 for some pay back.  At least I'm down to probably around 500 casts and counting.

Tight lines.
