The first leg of the OCBS Members Only Steelhead Tournament was held on Sunday November 3, 2019.

A sunny day with temperatures in the high-forties. Heavy rains earlier in the week pushed staging fish into the river systems. The East side streams were fishable despite elevated flows. The west side streams were running low and the majority of anglers chose to fish the east side streams.

Anglers reported a slow bite which was likely due to cold overnight temperatures which plummeted water temperatures in excess of ten degrees.

A total of 20 fish over 24-inches were checked in during the day.

Tournament Leg #2 is on November 24, 2019 from 6:00a- 4:00p
