    Not to burst your bubble, but no sense heading down on the peninsula. The rivers here are blown out. Rained good all nite and some today. Watched the river rise more than a foot today. Very muddy.
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine!

    Be sure to check on rivers daily, even hourly. Best fishing ever is often right as the discoloured water begins to clear and drop, and KP streams can go down nearly as quickly as they come up.

    Steelhead fishing isn't july reds, its usually blown out, pouring rain, or cold and snowing. Last year was an exception. I fished through the "blow out" caught lots of steel in pocket water. My modo is go alone if you have to and do it anyway, you'll meet the cool guys down there.

    Ya very true, last year I fished while there was sheets ice coming down the river. If there's fish there is fish, it takes more time to figure out the fish. If have gotten fish in blizzard like conditions, that's just a part of steelhead fishing. It's makes it challenging and a fun fish to catch.
