John and I are steelhead junkies - or as much of a steelhead junkie as you can be living in Maine. We fished steelhead together for the first time on the Deschutes River two years ago. The next year we fished the Grande Ronde and Clearwater rivers. While both trips were met with limited success, just being on steelhead rivers, fishing two-handed rods and swinging flies was all that was needed.
John is heading back to Washington state in a few days and I've got a trip planned to the Cattaraugus (western NY) towards the end of Oct. We'll be sharing pre-trip details (flies we're tying, etc) along with reports from the river as well as post-trip info and photos. We hope you'll follow our adventures as we chase steel separately from two very different eco systems... Think Steel!
