I really hope I can swing a winter steelhead trip or two this season.  It's damn hard to time it correctly when one lives 5 hours from the coast!  The Trinity was mostly a bust for me this year.  Just small ones.  It's been a long time since I hooked into a DD steel, and that needs to be remedied.  I'm thinking SF Eel or the Duzen.  Bring on the rains!

Add me to the speed dial list!  Haven't been to the coast for several winters.

It would be a pleasure to fish with you both!  Winter steel are amazing.  I love that immediate switch when you're out there freezing your ass off for hours, then you get a bite, hook up, and immediately you're all warm as the adrenaline rushes and you watch 30+ inches of chrome erupt out of the water.  Steelhead have handed my ass to me on more than one occasion  :smt044.

Did some damage Feb-Apr.

The center pin is already spooled with fresh line, ready to go.

Nice! Don't see alot of pinners down here in Cal. Were you down here or further north?

I'd say this fall was just OK for me, labor day weekend on the Trinity was awesome with 11 fresh adults landed but other trips to upper klam and rogue were only average.

The windows can be tight depending on how wet the winter is, but you should definitely head over with the yak. There's almost always one two week window during the season window everything aligns.
