Chad, saw your comment on the Derailed Cars thread about steelhead fishing on the Eel River and just wanted to ask how the fishing is on the river these days?  When I grew up in Ukiah I obsessed about fly fishing and made it to the Eel River many times with a couple friends, but our luck (and skill at that time) was not so good.  Regards,

Mark D.
