Bent Rod Steelhead Report #2

Dustin Webster of The Bent Rod Outdoors in Challis reports,  "Fishing Locally has been spotty at best.  Our water temp is pretty cold at 35-37 degrees so the fish haven't been too active."

"That being said," Dustin continued, "We are supposed to see warmer weather by this weekend so the water should come around fairly quickly.  The folks that have been picking up fish are using beads, roe or dark colored jigs.  Hopefully well have better news next Monday."

The Bent Rod Outdoors is headquarters for the Challis Area Chamber of Commerce Steelhead Derby. Although the winners of the Big Fish Contest won't be known until the April 6th Steelhead Ball, the weekly Mystery Fish Contest continues to attract a steady stream of participants.  This week's winner is Walk Parker.  His fish measured 24.25 inches and he received a $50 gift certificate to The Bent Rod Outdoors.  Mike Rukavina won the Mystery Fish Contest the prior two weeks in a row.

Each week during Steelhead Derby a random measure is drawn and the fish closest to the measure wins.
There were 6 entries in last week’s Mystery Fish Contest. Derby cards & rules are available at the Bent Rod Outdoors on Hwy 93 in Challis. Derby cards must be purchased before fish are caught and measured.
