Sunny days can have an adverse affect on fishing. When the sun shines down on the water, the fish won't even move an inch. A sunny day will cause Steelhead to go dormant, and because of their fear of being seen by predators, they won't even move to bite. Well because of this, yesterday was the first time I have been down the Situk without ever touching a fish. I couldn't believe it. All day I tried every color, shape, and size of every type of fishing known to man, and still no bites. So today, I had my Yakutat Lodge clients arise at 3:30 am, and we left the lodge at 4. Getting ahead of the sun was the key to success today. I had the privilege of going down the river with the clients from Montana again. Brian Rogers is a client that came last year for the first time, and this year I was real happy to see them come back. Brian and his Daughter have been having a great time since they arrived on Saturday. They will be here until the end of the week, and I expect I will get allot more pics of nice Steelhead they will land in the coming days. Here are a few from today.
