It's been awhile since posting here, and thought I would contribute some pics from a trip this past November to the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. The first day the Sun was shining and fairly warm for the weekend before Thanksgiving. The next day Mother Nature covered everything with a beautiful layer of snow. Didn't catch a lot that day, I was more in awe of my surroundings. I have never witnessed the river being more amazing than day. Fresh snow covering everything making it ever so quiet.
On the way to the GR...Flaming Gorge...

The next day....from Sun to snowstorm....gotta love Utah!!

Haven't been on here long, but have certainly gained lots of good knowledge from several different sub-forums. Just saw this sub-forum today! Used to fish when I was younger and spent 20 years away from it. Two birthdays ago, I told my wife to get me fly lessons for my B-Day. Since then, I sold my car (First and only car I've ever had, always had trucks). Bought my tacoma and have put 29K on it in less than a year and a half fishing for Trout and Steelhead. I grew up chasing Steelhead and regret letting those 20 years slip through my hands not chasing chrome! So....I'm making up for it now! As soon as my daughter can chuck a fly she'll be chasing the gray ghost with me!
By far my most favorite river to fish for steelhead. It was the first river I ever hooked a Steelhead on when I was 12. The South Fork of the Eel River. Nothing like stepping out of your truck and being amongst trees that could be 1200 years old and seeing the coastal fog roll over the mountain tops bringing in that chilled air. There's really no way to describe fishing the coastal rivers of Northern California and Southern Oregon. Constantly watching the weather conditions, the river levels and hoping you timed your trip just right to get a chance of hooking into a winter run Steelhead is something I'll never grow tired of! It's certainly not for everyone, although I do have some photos of me holding a nice Steelhead, more often than not (And especially on the Eel) I come home with the wife asking, "How many did you catch" to which I reply, "None, babe bagels everyday".

Wow! Nice places. Thanks for sharing these great pictures. It will be really good to go fishing at those places.
