There have been a number of steelhead being caught from the western beaches of Whidbey Island recently. I wouldn't say that the fishing has been hot by any means but at least there are a few being caught. One of the regular beach fishermen was in this AM and mentioned that he had hooked five and landed three in three trips. Not Bad! A fish per trip average. Though there has been some better steelhead fishing in a few places so far this season, overall this fishery has produced better than average. This is a very unique fishery and the setting is nothing but outstanding as far as the view. There are few places that are as picturesque as the Island on a clear winter afternoon with the sun setting over the Olympics.
