caught my first steelhead today with my fly rod and fly that I tied. Supposed to represent an emerald shiner. It was a male and 22 1/2" long. I had another one on but it either broke my tippet or my surgeons knot came undone. I had the Walnut creek to myself maybe the rain kept other people from fishing.

Re: steelhead

Great job. DO NOT BE AFFRAID TO USE NYMPHS UP THERE. Last year I had caught the majority of my fish on size 16-14 pheasant tails, and copper johns. Streamers are very effective on fresh chrom especially the emerald shiner but the fish that have been in there a little while will crush these small bugs. I had success on some large stone flies as well.

Re: steelhead

Congrats on the steelhead! I am not sure what is more of an accomplishment; the first steelhead or having Walnut Creek to yourself. Enjoy that moment, you may never experience that ever again!

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: steelhead

Congrats. Easy to get hooked on steelhead after you land the first one.
