Had an open seat for a sled ride on the Cowlitz river last week. The winter run steelhead were supposed to be in, but the fish didn’t get the message.
Got to see Davids new alumaweld sled with 90 pump anf F8 kicker. Some pockets of sunshine, but nothing to show for our efforts after a 2 hour drive and throwing eggs, jigs, beads and spoons for a bite.
I did have one fish that briefly mouthed my bait but was too slow on the Hooksett and lost the fish as a result.
