    Re: Smith / Chetco

    I fished it Thur and Fri (24th and 25th) with a friend of mine. Conditions were perfect. Mid 10' down to mid 9'. Steelhead green and not many on the water where we were. First day we got only a couple of small trout and no steel. Second day my friend landed a 6 lbs steelie and I hooked and lost one in the 10 lbs range. I hooked him maybe 10 yards from the tail out rapid and that is where he ran. Nothing I could do.

    One guy I ran into was from the Monterey area. We fished the same hole for a couple hours. Was that any of you? :)

    Most everyone we talked to was skunked. We talked to two guys in a raft landed two.

    Cheers,
