This monster winter steelhead was caught by Fred Anderson of Gold Beach while plunking a Spin-N-Glo at Social Security Bar on the Chetco River last week.
With no rain in the forecast this week, the Chetco River should be lowering and clearing, and that means that plunking techniques will probably be out the window. However, anglers can look forward to side-drifting from a boat or drift-fishing from the bank.
As predicted in previous articles significant numbers of steelhead finally made it to the Chetco at the end of the month, and January should be peak season for winter steelhead. On one particular day toward the end of December, the plunkers took at least 25 fish from Social Security Bar. Luckily, I was one of them.
