This morning I hiked in to the Hanging Gardens hole again. Started fishing with a drift setup but the water was a little hazey/slightly off colored emerald green so I switched to a blue fox spinner #4. No luck on the spinner for about 30-40 minutes so I decided to tie on a Heddon Tadpolly (silver body w/ orange stripes and ribs). Second cast I hooked a beautiful 1 lb rainbow trout which was extremely surprising given the size of the lure vs trout size haha. I carefully released the Rainbow and said, "I hope your bigger brother is out there too." (On a side note this was the first trip to the Green, out of many, that I landed a fish). So the Little Rainbow was already a pick-me-up). Considering it was starting to rain pretty heavily, the morning was going well (I love fishing in the rain). You won't believe what happened next. The very next cast my lure stopped dead... Which I thought might be bottom because it wasn't the typical strike on a retrieve. I set the hook anyway and the rod bent in half. Feels like bottom... But then it starts head shaking and goes on a run! I was all alone down there but you bet I yelled FISH ON! Landed a beautiful 8-9lb Native on my brand new G.Loomis medium action rod and it couldn't have been a better fish to break in the new rod and break my streak on the Green. It was a great day!

I've been fishing the Green River quite a bit more frequently even though the Steelhead population is lacking, at best. The first few times I hiked in to the Icy Creek Hatchery area. The first trip out there this year I hooked into a nice 8-10lb Steelie using a silver Blue Fox spinner (sadly it spit the hook). Five trips since then I haven't hooked or seen a thing. This past Sunday I decided to try out the Hanging Gardens hole because I had never been there before. After quite a bit of research and Satellite analysis I was pretty sure that I knew where to park to hike in. Sure enough I found it easily and hiked down to the hole. I was extremely glad that I did because once you get down to the river bank you find out just how beautiful that area is. If there is a Steelhead in the Green River, this is the spot. I was using jigs under a float for a couple hours before switching over to drift fishing with a corky & yarn. The hole is absolutely gorgeous and even though it was pouring rain, I had a great time at Hanging Gardens. One of these days I'll hook into another Green River Steelhead. That day can't come soon enough......

Just Moved to the area a couple months ago and have never fished Steelhead before so can't say I was doing everything right. Mostly just getting used to the river and a couple of spots. Used a float and jig for a few hour with clear water and didn't see any fish at all. Good day to practice I guess.

This morning the river got a little dirty compared to Sat. We fished the Isaac Evans park area. We saw fish rolling around but they were very tight lipped. We used Eggs, Prawns, and sliders. No takers.

Today my friend and I fished the green river. This is territory I have never stepped foot on. We usually hang out on the OP but with 6 inches of rain forecasted out there today we said hell! Lets do something new. We floated the green valley stretch on our craigslist bought pontoons boats. And although we didn't hook into any steelhead, it is a really nice river to float. I won't say too much since this is not my territory, but we will definitely be back here for next years pink season.

I went fishing on the upper green river yesterday and today. The chum run is going to start tapering off by now but there are definitely still some in there. I caught 3 yesterday and 7 today floating a bobber and jig. Man, chum hit hard and fight hard. Still no steelhead yet but they are still coming. chums are always fun to catch.

I cannot believe what happened today. Started off around noon and as the sun was starting to go down I called it a day having landed about 6 chum. However, the good fishing was hardly what made today so crazy. After hitting the road I was about halfway home on highway 18 and realized my rod wasn't with me... The last thing I remembered was leaning it against the truck and then it hit me. I drove off and left my nicest setup, a Loomis 1263c/Calcutta D combo, lying in the parking lot back at Metzler park. At this point I had just about $#!% my pants and immediately headed back to the park. After what seemed like forever I finally arrived and it was pretty dark. I couldn't find my rod but after looking around for a bit I noticed a piece of paper on a dead chum carcass someone had left there. It read, "I have your fishing rod. If you want it back call with the rod and reel you had." At that point a huge weight had been lifted off my back and I called the guy back and in 10 minutes him and his buddy were there with my rod. I couldn't believe how much I lucked out having two people find the rod who were genuine enough to find its owner, as they could have easily made off without a hitch. After they left I regretted not giving them something to show my appreciation like $20 to grab a bite on the way home or something. People are amazing and I'll be forever thankful of those two gentlemen!!!!

Report for November 22, 2014


Fished the green at Metzler Drift all morning. Hooked up on a couple of chum using bobber/dark purple jig. Had a piece to table shrimp hooked on it as well. Tried eggs/shrimp/ and jigs+shrimp. Not many bites all morning for the whole bank.

I met a younger guy Garret (?) with his uncle - also floating pink jigs and occasionally drift fishing. He was pretty good and landed about 5-6 chum while the rest of the river had 5-6 total. They left early for lunch and didnt see them again- although they were coming back for more!

I ended the day around noon with just 3-4 hookups and most were quick pull and spit out...Nothing landed. Too bad- the rain was starting to weigh down and my damp clothes didnt help.

Most people had luck with about 4 ft leaders under their bobber and almost EVERYONE was tipping their hooks with shrimp. Going to try some sand shrimp tomorrow or cured shirmp at least. I tried drift fishing with shrimp and pink/pink corky & yarn but no bites. Felt a few bumps so at least they were down there. They sure were rollin... just no biting.

Tomorrow is a new day!! and as a weekend warrior, i have no choice but to wake up early and catch me some chum again tomorrow!

Going to the exact same spot tomorrow to test my luck (this was my first time here and i heard they were killing it Friday -- yesterday) .... but for some reason, that's what i hear a lot from people nowadays - "it was great yesterday, slow today". haha

Best,
Linh

Got to the river really early, good action right away for the next hour. It slowed down around 8:00am, I was targeting Chum, no problem catching those, hooked about 8 fish, kept two. But the highlight of the day was when I hooked into this little Steelhead!! my first one ever, it was good eating.

I fished the Auburn golf course area, not very many people out fishing. Lot's of bright chums moving through that area.
