New York steelhead

Postby 9ft4wt » Tue Apr 21, 2009 11:14 am

Fished Oak Orchard for two days in early April. Pretty slow most of the time, but we had about 2 hours of red hot fishing on one day. If I were a better fisherman, I probably would have caught 10 or so in that period. I lost more than I landed but ended up with three, the bigest a 12-pound hen. Picked up a 9-pound male the next day.

When i figure out how to post a picture, I will add one.

I wanna see the pics!

Short pic answer is...you can upload the pic to photobucket or other on-line photo service. Once done, right click on the uploaded pic, click properties, at the end will be the URL, copy that. When back on this forum, click the Img button and (img)(img) will appear in your thread and past the copied URL there in the middle of the 2 (img)s.

35 degree high, rain and snow mixed most of the day, Wind gusts to 40 mph and my waders got a puncture at mid-thigh. Amazing how you forget about being miserable when the fish come out to play.

Thanks for posting for me Jeff.
