    Default Wilson 4th and 5th, then Trask and Barney 5,6,7th: Chasing Steelhead and Cutties

    Insane.
    fishing Oregon in 35* in the forest on the thorny fern banks in the rain.
    eating **** all over and feeling the pain.
    Only way to explain it.
    the last 4 days I put in serious work.
    up and down several huge rivers.
    after getting lost four times and refusing to give up..
    i found the secret lake and hooked five cutties within five minutes of standing in the crystal clear water.
    I was not able to catch a giant steelhead yet.
    I have like two weeks left before the season closes.

    tons of video footage you won’t believe. No time to stop and make videos now. I have two weeks left to get on one of these fish. I learned so much **** the last few days about Oregon coastal steelhead you guys wouldn’t believe it. I promise some footage explaining it all. I’m dragging cameras around with me everywhere.

    I’ll put some pics in the next post before I get cut off ayooooooo
    im on the hunt 24/7 for a steelhead non stop! No joke..
    trout junkie over and out

    The cutties are on video coming later.. after I catch a steelhead I’ll roll
    them all into TJ TV episode IV if I make it out alive. I sleep in the snow quite a bit lately. Lol. Click image for larger version.

    oddest thing ever how I bought a high speed ratio micro baitcaster right before my excursions into steelhead.
    sure works well for fishing fast rivers!

    now if I can just find a fish between all the elbow to elbow anglers and people illegally using bait...

    PS.

    do come to Oregon and fish the Wilson and Trask.

    Don’t come to Oregon looking for Barney. You might die.
    I have seven years of logging road experience and I have maps when my cellphone dies. I do know exactly what I’m doing, and don’t recommend you try it. Very dangerous. You’ll want shovels and extra gas just in case. It’s 20 miles back in the cliffs and snow. You have to come up from Tillamook. All C&R
