    When I return from NC, I plan to get after them. I miss standing on the banks drift fishing, casting spinners and spoons for them.

    Nice fish and ride. I spent a few hours last Thursday on the bank. Only thing caught was a few hours of quiet enjoyment:).

    My favorite stretch of the Puy. Can't forget the Carbon itself, used to be able to pull a few out of there every year.

    True that on the Carbon. Years ago about a mile or two below the mouth was curve with lots of holes & gravel bars that held fish. Around the early 90's WDFW granted a gravel extraction to a big rock Corp (connected to a land development Corp) and they took out all the holes & gravel bars & made it like a canal, straight as the eye can see!!! :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    There are a places along that stretch are starting to come back into fish holding shape. A lot of good that it does as there are no steelies to use those spots. :(:mad:

    We had a ball today on a small Southwest Washington stream that just dropped into shape perfectly.
    Not a guide but a friend who knows how to hunt steelhead.;)
