We may not make it to Avonia Tavern until 900 PM or so, depending on traffic. We'll be at the pavillion around 600 AM, give or take a hangover. Like to be on the water by 800 AM Saturday. Can't stay late Saturday, but will try to stop by the pavillion after fishing. See you all up there.

I hope there is a fresh shot of rain for you folks to fish with. I fished Thursday - had a horrible day on lower Elk, with little I could attribute to a steelhead bite (meaning, I fished all day and don't think I had a single hit). Saw four fish caught all morning, as I walked from a bridge above the Conrail tubes, to a bridge below the tubes. One fish I saw a guy catch was a nice brown trout. In the afternoon, I saw 10-15 fish caught from the tail end of one of the larger pools - all on sucker spawn or blood dots. I was just upstream from that, but in deeper water and with the murkiness, I think shallow water was where the action was. The fish were on the move and that's the second time I've seen folks nab them as they come up out of the rapids into the tail of that pool.

I was going to fish today, but was frustrated enough with yesterday's outing (and had a work conference call to make), that I decided to sleep in and pack it home. I stopped by upper Elk, just to see if any fish had made it. Low and clear, with more leaves (or maybe the same amount of leaves than lower Elk, but less water, so a higher leaf density). The wind was certainly kicking more leaves into the stream - I predict it will be a mess to fish for a few days. Anyway, couldn't resist getting the rod out and finally hooked two. Landed one, about 25" and lost a monster that never surfaced - headed straight for the lake, and then had a long, soft release, with a little chunk of the steelhead's mouth still attached to the hook after I reeled in the line. Should have opted for fewer fish, but lower and clearer water yesterday - I like to walk and sight fish and all I ended up doing yesterday is walking :) I know they were in there yesterday, but I and most other people couldn't solve them.

Ahhh geez Jack, I wont be there till atleast 2:00 saturday, might not even get to bump into you and Greg. Considering the success of the last times I fished with you, that might be a good thing. Now fishing steelhead success with Albatross on the other hand.....

Hope the copperheads are gone. ;)

Steelheading to remember.

...fly fishing is solitary,contemplative,misanthropic,scientific, in some hands, poetic in others and laced with conflicting aesthetic considerations. it's not even clear if catching fish is actually the point...

Thanks for the nice pics SkyBay. I enjoyed meeting you.

Jack was whinning about not catching any fish, but here we have photographic proof that he did catch a steelhead.

Thanks for the photos. I was afraid no one would believe I caught that 40 inch, 25 lb. steelie, so I kept it under wraps to make sure the photo came out.

Nice to meet you Jerry.

Always wondered what happened to Gamber, kid, and Farmer. Were they there? Did I just miss them?

ST- I ended up at a halloween party and pretty much sealed my fate. Wish I would have fished Sunday with you guys- looked like good conditions. Fished the Tuesday after and it was decent- been terrible since then. Some day I meet more of you guys.

You make to the May gathering? Been to the last 2 of those.

The May gathering is a bit too much booze for a man with my past, but Paul assured me I can weasel in at his trailer this year.
