Went out this morning to the lower Clack. Started fishing around 6 with some #4 Blue Foxes. A little after 7 I hooked into and landed about a 15 lber.

Years ago I caught a very dark Coho at the mouth of Eagle Creek but this is the first bright one Ive caught. Unfortunately it had an extra fin but I was more than happy to release it.

Sorry about the crappy pic but I was a little amped and I wanted to get it back into the water so I didn't think about putting my pole next to it for comparison so it looks like I took a pic of a smolt or something.

Thanks fishingfreak for the tip

It was a beauty. I would still be there but I promised the boys that if they slept in I would take them to Salish to try for one of those trophies. So now it's trout time

Then I caught my first steel. It's all kind of new to me but I wish my phone took better pictures.

Good fish for your first steelhead! My first stealhead was an 11 lb summer on the Willamette just below the mouth of the Clackamas.

Thanks everyone. I haven't caught a lot of big fish so I'm not sure of the size. I once caught a 12 lb rainbow and this seemed much bigger. I sure wish I would have got my rod in the shot.
