Outdoor writer Dave Graybill seeks out east side steelhead

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

I managed to pick a day to go steelhead fishing when it wasn’t raining or snowing, but it did turn out to be tough fishing.

I traveled to Pateros, with Rollie Schmitten, Brian Anatatmula and Tom Merrill.

I started at the bridges and but soon ran down river to the point across from the Rocks. I was pumped as I was going to be the first one to fish this productive spot that morning.

However, it disappointed me. We bounced back and forth from the Rocks to this point a couple of times, and I decided to change things up. I had everyone tie on Keith Roe Raven Jigs.

We were using larger jigs and now we’re going to be using just 1/16th-ounce jigs in blue and chartreuse and black and white.

On the next drift through the Rocks Tom hooked a wild fish that we released. On the next pass Rollie got another wild fish. Then Tom got hooked a third wild fish.

By then it was time to go, but boy, I learned a lesson. I am going to switch to smaller jigs a lot soon next time. In fact I may just start with them.
