I love to steelhead fish and try and take advantage of rainfall and rising tributary levels that normally draws fresh fish in. We recently received a full day of heavy rain and ventured off to some of the tributaries in Upper NY.
To our surprise when we arrived, water levels were high with about 1′ visibility. Few anglers were out, probably discouraged by the cold wind-chill & high water.
I was able to hook-up 4-steelhead which fought extremely hard.
Our friend Stefan landed a chunky 5 lb. brown that was still holding over from last fall.
Benjamin Reubeni was also able to join us to test some of his gear and had a great time. We were all wet, cold, but loved it….I guess you could say we are gluttons for fun!!
