New Year, First Fish

Headed out on New  Year’s Day with Marty (www.canadawaycreek outfitter.com) for our annual New Year’s Day attempt to land a fish on the first day of the new year.  Goal was a steelhead, but they have proven to be very sparse this tributary season.

Tried a couple of the regular spots for winter, no good.  Opted to move to a new spot farther upstream.  Water nice and green, temps not to cold and good flow.

No steelies, but we managed to hook up with a couple of brookies!  My first brook trout ever.   These are not a native fish, but have been planted thru the efforts of another local guide, Alberto Rey.  So thank you for that!
