When I told Chad, an avid fly fisherman, that centerpin fishing is just indicater fishing on steroids, he took to the technique like a pro. With a short tutorial and a little instruction, he was making good casts and excellent drifts in no time at all.
The trout bite was exceptional, and Chad brought a number of very healthy browns and rainbows to hand. The native river population seems to be in great shape. A few nice steelhead topped off our morning and we headed home to keep the wives happy. I'm not positive, but I think that a new centerpin outfit will be on the top of Chad's Christmas list for next year.
Here are a few of our fish from today.
