March Madness!

We have had a busy March of winter steelheading on the Sandy River. The fish get grabby when the weather warms and all the fish below were taken with a swung fly except for one. The warmer weather and high flows helped us this month. Lots of new fish lately and April can be hot! Will you join us?

What a busy month! Madness is the only way to describe it. It takes so many thousands of casts to come up with the photo gallery above. There is no way to describe the many opportunities that almost came. The grabs that didn't stick, or the hot fish that came undone mid cartwheel, and the heartbreakers that came right to our feet after a long battle and shook the hook at that last instance. Then there are the days that everything is just off and they just wont grab. Thats what keeps me coming back. That challenge. That madness!
