Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you plan to spend some time outdoors while your family and friends are home for the Holidays. One of my favorite photos is of me holding a bright steelhead with a date stamp of December 25th,1991. My brother Rick took my brother Lane and my Dad fishing off the mouth of the Wenatchee River that morning. It was a very special day. On Monday, after being cooped for way too long, I drove up to Spring Canyon on Lake Roosevelt to try my luck from shore. I walked down to a spot below the swimming area at the park and set up two rods with slip sinker rigs and baited them both with jarred shrimp and a marshmallow to float it up off the bottom. After an hour without a bite I was about to leave and try fishing at Keller when one of my rods bounced. I landed a 16-inch rainbow, so I decided to give it more time. The next fish came about a half hour later and was 18 inches and I got another one not long after. This one was a 19-incher. It was about 12:30 now, and I wanted to stop and visit with Peggy Nevismal at the Coulee Dam Chamber before I headed home, so I packed up my gear. I am sure I could have finished my limit with more of these dandy rainbow, if I could have stayed longer. Oh, well next time.
