2015-2016 OCBS CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES STEELHEAD OUTING RESULTS
The third leg of the Championship Series Steelhead Outing has been held with many fish which fell short of the 24 inch minimum length requirement. A tough day on Steelhead Alley. More fish are coming into the rivers now as the lack of rain this fall has slowed the run. Now after all our rain, there should be many opportunities for steelhead from now, on into the spring. Below are the winners of the first three legs of the series. Two more to go, so good luck to all!
1 Nov 2015 1st Leg Results
# NAME Fish #1 Fish #2 Total Length 1 Tom Krause 25.25” – 25.25”
