I would find it hard to get excited about small fish like that with big Chromers in rivers but im glad to see you find pleasure !!! Great fishing to you !!!!
Fish on !
Meh steelheading is fun but nothing beats catching small coloured up resi's on a fly rod. Plus it takes more skill. 😆
Seriously though I got out had my fun catching some chromers before and on opener on the pin. But the crowds are garbage and searching for fishable water is painful. Chucking bait is mindless poop. I went out my first day steelheading and hammered 9 fish. Now fly fishing is a different story. Go try and paste 10 resident Browns in 2 hours your first day fly fishing and let me know how you do.
