Friday Fishing Report- Steelhead edition

Quick report for you guys.

Tuesday, my new classmate Andrew and I, along with his fiancé Lisa made a quick evening trip to the Clearwater. This was my first time on the Clearwater, and fortunately it was not Andrews first time so he was showing me the ropes. We got to the river around 5:30 and met up with a friend of Andrew's who gave us some beta, and we quickly got ready and headed to the river.

The three of us spread out along the long run and started working down. We were fishing traditional style flies with intermediate tips. Within 30 minutes Andrew caught and landed the first/ only landed fish of the outing. An hour or so later I got a promising bump but was unable to connect. And a time after that Lisa had one on but was unable to land it.

All in all it was a good trip, that reminded of the importance of taking a break from a busy and stressed schedule to get a line wet.

Next time your fishing as the sun is setting point your lens at the sun and snap away. You might like how things turn out.

Andrew attributes his catch to his new Evolution Anglers cap.

A much needed break from the anxiety and stress of medical school
