with only being a week into January, it has been extremely busy and only getting busier. Browns and steelhead have been tricky to find and catch in the harbors but getting off the beaten path in the rivers have been the trick. Friday, we only had one swing and miss with a shiner on an Automatic fisherman but took 4 fish (including one fully loaded female coho) and missed two others jigging. White tinsel jig was the star followed up by a Rapala Slab Rap. Saturday I ran my

At our first spot I missed two takedowns with a bobber and spawn. After an hour or so we decided to move spots.
