So I started my day doing my part in clipping 109,000 Fall Chinook for the Rhoades Pond Facility on Three Rivers. It is a volunteer run rearing facility 6 miles east of Hebo. There were a hundred or so volunteers and the clipping took about 3 hours. Afterwards they had a bbq and raffle. We decided to drive home through Tillamook and up Hwy. 6. I snapped my steelhead rod a couple days ago with Autofisher so all I had was a 5.5ft ultra-light with 6lb line. Third cast hooked into a beast! 30 inches and in the 12-14lb range. One of my buddies is an executive producer for Fox 12 and he asked that I take some pics of the event for the news. I threw in a pic of me holding my fish so just maybe if you watch the Fox 12 news tonight at 10 you might see me holding up a nice chrome steelhead on the news! Here are some pics from the day.
