David had his limit by 7:10 this morning....had to wait around for the old man to finally put a couple of fish on the bank! He actually said....."When did you get to be so old and clunky!!!" :think:
Been have a tough run of luck myself! I was 0 for 5 this morning before landing back to back steelhead....that on top of a 1 for 4 out my last trip in which I lost the last 3 fish I hooked! 8 fish in a row while he was 5 for 6 in his last 3 trips!!! Sometimes that's just how it works! :D
Caught a nice native then landed this hatchery and left before I caused any more mayhem! Slipped on a rock and twisted my knee sideways while trying to help David beach his 2nd fish....I laid half out of the water whimpering like a little girl while he calmly tailed his fish! Had to drink a 6-pack just to knock the pain down while I BBQ'd!!!

Nice fish MD! Sounds like your son has got the touch! If you don't mind divulging, what river did you catch those beauties on?

There is a rumor that a 49 1/2" 30lb hatch steelie was taken at Swiftwater this week and there is supposed to be a photo at the Idelyld Store...any truth to this rumor?

I haven't stopped in there in a few weeks....but now I have a reason to!!! :think:

A 49 1/2" Steelhead would be an incredible winter fish.....it would be an unbelievable summer fish!!! :D My youngest caught a native that was around the 35" to 36" length the summer before last, and I have heard of 20 lb'ers....30 would be huge!!!

I'll look into it! ;)

Sorry for getting everyones hopes up, turns out the cashier didn't know the difference between a steelie and a springer....fish was a springer...oh well...guess you do need to go to the Babine or Kispiox(sp?) to get a 30lb Summer...
