After 4 years of fishless steelhead seasons I finally landed a nice little 8 lb. wild doe today ;D. She nailed a silver RVRFSHR spoon and after a few runs and jumps I guided her into shore. There was another gent fishing below me and he had come up to have a look so I asked him if he could take a couple of pics for me. So I tailed her and removed the hook from her mouth and being wild I didn't want to lift her clear of the water so this was the best pic, I was hoping it would show the adipose. Great feeling to finally catch another of these beauties after so long.

Nice release picture and congrats on your first steel, the rest will come easier I am sure.

I remember when I was 14 and finally landed my first steel well into my second year of trying I was so excited I ran circles around my parents house screaming "steelhead" for close to an hour after my father and I got back from Chehalis.

Don't fight it if you feel like doing the same thing...who cares what the folks next door think! :)

Is it just me or does there seem to be more fish being caught earlier that the last few years, I haven't had the chance to pound the water hard yet this year due to commitments, but from what buddy's are sayin there seems to be a ton of fish in already.
Keep the catch pictures coming
Cheers,

Man, that's a nice looking fish! Were you using the Record reel? :thumbup: The river looks just awesome as well. I've been a drought for awhile, (due to new baby girl). Haven't been out in 2 years now and finally! might be able to get out on Sunday. Just hope to have the day you've had! Congrats!
