Some steelhead I spotted and was blessed enough to get photos of in San Luis Obispo creek, CA.

The winter has been 70% drier than normal so far below the SF Bay.  Hopefully a big storm comes to light up the rivers and bring in more fish.
It is amazing any steel came into this creek at all with the low flows, but it is also the reason that they could be captured by my camera.

This creek runs right through town; I took these shots after I saw a friend of mine who is a steelhead restoration specialist with the DFG peering over a bridge right downtown.  Pulled over real quick and flipped out.  These fish are in the 26" range, and there is a 5th jack size fish of maybe 18" that you can't see because it is in the shadows.  It is amazing the results of a little stream stewardship; not long ago this creek had almost zero trout and was an open sewage ditch.

Anyway, thought you boys back in The South would appreciate me sharing.

Cheers

Not sure about it, but I did hear that the biologists are predicting a mega onslaught of salmon this year (compared to recent numbers which were so low they shut down the fishery)

I know what you mean about wanting to just jump in get after em'....there is something primal when you see a fish that size and it's no wonder so much overfishing has occurred in the history of mankind
