The Early Spring Swing

Posted by on April 4, 2014

With the early lock-up this Winter and late thaw this Spring, Cabin Fever has been all too real.  Not to mention, I’ve been stuck in mandatory training at work the last 6 weeks away from home due to my promotion, so I’ve been unable to sneak out and fish.  I was worried about the water clarity when I decided the Milwaukee was my best option and my worries were instantly put to rest when I got to the water…30″ of visibility is a very sexy stain.  The morning weather was dreary and misty…perfect Steelhead weather.  I swung with the big stick and sink tip where I could at 1050 cfs and went 2 for 3 with flashy and dark leech patterns.    The weather went south as each minute passed.  The day started calm and misty @ 43 degrees and ended with 35 mph gusts, sleet flurries, and wind chill in the low 20’s.  That being said, I’ve never been so glad to be fishing in shitty weather.



Look at those cheeks

The Milwaukee has a certain urban charm…at times
