Quick River Note from Sunday August 29

Nothing like the free-feeling of a Sunday afternoon spent on the river; a river empty of angler folk but full of fish. Fished Slate Creek, the bridge run and the super secret tailout water all with a steady pick of half pounders on a cool, cloudy afternoon. Took advantage of a water temperature drop to below 20C. First adult came to hand and adds to my small, but growing list of adult steelhead landed before September 1. Called it quits before evening set in, as the cool winds kept at it and the evening began to fizzle out on the heels of the afternoon. Will try it again mid-week as it warms back up and returns to summer for a more classic evening jaunt. Stay tuned….
