Every spring, I bump in to other steelheaders who only fish here, away from the crowds and the ensuing madness of other streams. Its like being part of a secret society, whose only aim is to truly enjoy quiet and solitude. Its all the more remarkable because its exactly 1 hour from my home.
Some of my grandest moments in steelheading are from this very spot. It's funny to think that so few of them actually involve catching fish.
