Steve hit the lower river last week, just after the ice broke up. Possibly because they were one of the first boats through that stretch in months but they had an awesome day, landing many, many steelhead and a 31″ brown.
While Steve has landed many larger browns trolling in the big lake and on lures in the river, this is his personal best on a fly and better yet it came on a streamer.
Steve says the streamer was copied from a friend, Greg Senyo. The fly is called Artificial Intelligence and was in Green Goblin color. Steve says the Artificial Intelligence has become a favorite steelhead streamer.
Steve wanted me to also pass along that he has fallen in love with the Cortland, Compact Switch saying, “It’s the only line I’ll use for swinging.”
