Thanks for the replies and info. It sounds similar to my winter efforts, worth some time to see if they will come back either through a second presentation, possible fly change, step back, or possible second pass in that area later, but don't dwell too long on it. Keep moving and looking for that one winter aggressive fish. I guess maybe, really the same for summer fish as well, unless you have a proven player that keeps coming back. Yes, I have worked hard to not react, certainly have had my share while learning of lifting too early or moving the rod in some way. I don't think that was the issue in these cases. If I had to guess, and not being a steelhead, most likely these are fish on the move, or just really not that interested given the colder conditions. Anyway, probably over thinking it, but always interested in what others might have to say. Thanks again.
