Comments: Went up after work again. Water was low and clear this time. Again, egg patterns and shiner patterns worked the best. This time up, I had 15 hook ups and had the pleasure of landing 9 beautiful steelhead. I made some changes to my setup and I think it helped up my ratio of getting fish in the net. I added some line in to make my leader longer for easier mends and upsized to 3x tippet. I also used less split shot, but I'm not sure if that made a difference or not. Two fish were in the 18" to 20" range, most were in the 25"-28" range, and I did get one over 30". As far as I could see, I was the only one on the river.
