Cold but productive day

Cold but productive day
Big beautiful steelhead

Stephen Palbykin

Tempe Arizona

Snowing, windy and cold...but very productive with two fish over 30"

Dodging lake effect snow the day started out looking like it was going to be one of those tough hard unproductive days. That is until the guide spotted a redd with fish on it. After numerous casts we were successful in hooking up and landing some nice big beautiful steelhead. After pictures and measuring the beauties we released them to hopefully produce more of these wonderful species.
