Spring Steelhead 2013 - Week 3

When the fishing is as good as it is in a particular week, at some point it will eventually slow down as river conditions change or fish move through the system.  Fortunately, this was not the case last week as we again had one of our best Spring weeks to date here at Nicholas Dean.  Agent, writer and photographer Jeff Bright, hosted the week, and along with him were guests Jim Leithliter, Steffen Juhl and Columbus Leth.  Steffen is no stranger to the international fishing community, nor is Columbus.  Steffen is the owner and CEO of Salmon Junkies, a company that offers first rate  Atlantic Salmon trips on the famed Kola peninsula, and Columbus is a professional photographer who specializes in portraits, food and outdoor photography, and more recently, high quality travel/destination videos.  To see some of his work, check out Columbus Leth Photography.  

Below are a few snap shots from our fishing this week, courtesy of Jim Leithliter; look for more to come shortly from Steffen and Columbus.  In the meantime be sure to check out the Salmon junkies blog for their first and second trip reports from last week.

When the fish are this nice, everyone wants to photograph them!
