Winter Mermaid and Gretzky Steelhead
Maybe behind that rock.
Spontaneous Rock Art
Suz and I went after winter steelhead. Unlike summer fish which strike like lightning, winter fish sometimes merely stop the jig or bait. If in doubt, set the hook. Hockey great Wayne Gretzky said "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." When your line pauses, reef back and you may be rewarded with delicious winter chrome.
