That photo looks like absolute misery. If it is that bad, I hope I can lose the 100 flys I tied in the last two days in short order.

That picture was taken at walnut in the stream improvement area. A few years back they made some log jams and a large parking lot that holds several hundred cars. It gets a lot of traffic and is just a hundred yards or so from the mouth. Thats what it looks like early in the run. That was my first day ever to catch a steelhead and didn't really know where to go at that point. I'll probably never fish that area again. Once you know where to go and walk a ways, you'll find some spots all to yourself. It's only that bad early in the run when the fish are just barely in the streams, the weather is nice, and hunting season hasn't started. Once all those things turn around, the crowds go away.

Stay off walnut unless we get a lucky year when they get way way up. Elk is my "go to" stream most of the time.

McFlyfoam eggs almost always works for me. The key is the color. I have about 15 colors of them and can almost always find one that'll get some action.
