Element Preview Rookie anglers feel the pull of steelhead
The Jaap Hole on Duluth's Lester River was encircled by steelheaders Tuesday afternoon. Several seasoned anglers in weathered vests drifted waxworms and yarn-flies in the pool just below a six-foot waterfall.
But sprinkled among those old hands were several anglers who didn't resemble the crusty veterans. These were kids, 14 and 15 years old, scrambling on the rocks, soaking waxies and salmon eggs. And catching fish.
It was spring break week in the Duluth schools.
