Idaho Spring Steelhead Fishing

by Cory Glauner

We just got back from a Northern Idaho Steelhead fishing trip this spring up the East Fork of No-Tellum Creek.

Cory, Bruce, Mike, Chris, Ben and Brett all went up for the weekend. We had a great time and landed a TON of fish. Most of these fish were caught on fly rods too!

I went Idaho steelhead fishing this Friday and Saturday with some friends. I had an awesome time!! I managed to land 3 steelhead. The first I caught on a Fly-Rod, and it was incredible! It took me about 20 minutes to land the fish. It was a huge hatchery female. She was about 37-38 inches and around 17-18 pounds!!! My arms were sore after fighting her in!

I didn’t get any other pictures, but I landed 2 other fish on regular spin casting rod. One was a huge hatchery male. He was about 39 inches and probably 18-19 pounds! The other fish was a smaller female around 30 inches and maybe 10 pounds. It was awesome!!!!
Enjoy!” ~Ben
