I finally landed a steelhead this morning! albeit native and small (18"), it was still a rush on my ultra-light with #8 line. Just as soon as I got him to the bank and somewhat stable, I went for the camera and I guess he wasn't in the mood for pictures because he took OFF with my all black #3 spinner. So, that was about 6:15, then at around 7 I hooked up with something much, much bigger. Unfortunately, that fight lasted about 5 seconds until it spit the hook. I continued to drift shrimp under a bobber for the next couple of hours, until some neighbors came down and totally jacked my spot. This is a private property hole on the clack, and I didn't want to make any enemy's so I called it a day.
