Fishing the Gualala

My brother was in town for the weekend. The ab season is over, but steelhead season is just getting started. I've always been curious about the Gualala, so thought we'd give it a try.

This is new for both of us, and required some study and outfitting. He fished with a flyrod, and I fished with spinners and spoons. No adult steelheads, but had some fun catching smolts (younguns that have yet to make it to the sea). It's all wild fish, barbless hooks, and catch & release on the Gualala anyway, and we have a better idea what to do next time. In any case, any day on a river is a good day.

Some pics from our two days on the river.




Took pictures to show that we're not the only ones who obsess about water levels
