Team SAA Friday Forecast 9/28/12

Team Steelhead Alley Angler “Friday Forecast 9/28/2012” 

 Rain from earlier this week has given some color and flow to the area streams in Steelhead Alley.  At first glance the USGS flow gauges point to a positive outlook regarding anglers chrome hunting adventures this weekend.  Spawn sacs as well as jig/maggot combos have been putting some fresh steelhead on the banks this week.  A lot of skippers are being reported as well as some medium sized fish thrown into the mix. 

Best opportunity for hooking into fish seems to be within the first 5 miles or so of stream.  As each period of rain rolls through the Northeast, the further fish will continue to migrate up the tributary systems.  If you are headed out this weekend, look to target lower waters for the best chance at some success.  Early morning and late evening seems to still be the best times to hookup.  Like a light switch, the fishing seems to turn off late morning and mid-day.  This is common for this time of year.  Depending on clarity, running a fluorocarbon leader this weekend will be a key to success if the water clears up quick.  

I would expect to see an increase of angler activity streamside this weekend.  With favorable weather and anglers getting the itch to find chrome, you are likely to have some company streamside.  It’s that time of season to strap on the head lamps and be standing in the water at daylight.  The early bird gets the worm per say. Team SAA will be spread throughout the alley area this weekend.  It is chrome hunting time!  Fresh King eggs in hand, we will be looking to land some fresh chrome.  If you have questions about gear, rigging and How-To questions, make sure to check out the Steelhead Alley Angler Facebook page.  There are a lot of anglers available there to answer all your questions.

Until Next Time…
Fish Hard…Fish Often…
