Ladies putting in work this fall!

I had a great day fishing on Saturday although I didn’t land any of my fish! I had a little scuffle with another boat and while it didn’t ruin my day or my mood, it clearly impaired my ability to land fish! Lol.

A friend text me today and told me that their client is a frequent reader of Steelhead Girls and was inspired to fish. My heart skipped as I thought, “this is exactly what I want to hear!” The purpose of Steelhead Girls is to empower, encourage, and help women  and I got the best news that I’ve heard all weekend: Someone was empowered, encouraged, and inspired! So this week, I decided that instead of writing about my weekend succeeding at hooking fish, but failing at landing them, I would share a few ladies that have been nailing fish lately :)

The woman who inspired my blog this week: She fished with Joseph Princen ( and got this beautiful coho twitching a hoochie jig


A good friend Kari Smith went out this weekend and not only slept in, but limited early!


This summer I met an awesome girl on the ocean trip. Kelcey Helvey and I share a few fishing buddies and we’ll be out again in  no time! She recently went out with her fiancé and got a few chum!


Shawnie Roney hit a major accomplishment this weekend. Something that I’ve never done! She got all 5 Pacific Northwest salmon knocked off her “fish list”! Not only did she fun hooking chum, she got a bonus coho as well!


Stacy Mayovsky is the beautiful girlfriend of Joseph Princen ( and snagged one of his open days to fish coastal kings.


Joyce Williams had a great day salmon fishing a couple of weeks ago and shared her catch with us! 


And last but certainly not least….Lora Varju, Just For Does prostaff, got her first ever salmon! What a great fish!


Great job to all the ladies working hard this fall!

New rod, new records!

What an fun weekend! really put the wood to my Loomis SAMR1265C and will not be turning back. Caught my record salmon, and had awesome company! :)
