Drifted the Trinity river with Guide extrordinaire Mike Hibbard in search of fresh run Steelhead.
We found them. I landed 7 of the 13 adult Steelhead hooked, a salmon and a bunch of 1/2 pounders.
All fish had adipose fins intact so were born wild.
This is the nicest looking fish I've ever held.
30" 10lbs, amazing fight.
The man with the plan, Mike Hibbard
As always all these fish were released unharmed but totally pissed off!!
