Took a client out before work this morning. Didn't seem real fishy this morning but managed this one after a few passes. No other bites in the 2 hours we were out there.

Caught my first steelhead Ever today, NW Oregon coastal river. 1/8oz white jig head with a pink body/black tail worm. I've been hitting the banks of the river at least one day nearly every weekend since the start of January, was just about to hang it up for the season. I didn't even think I had a bite, thought for sure I was snagged up, reeled down and gave it a tug to pop it loose, and I got a tug back and line started peeling. Ten minutes or so of back and forth and I finally managed to get her close enough to grab her tail. Beautiful native hen, safely released and on to spawn.

No tape or scale, but I'd guess she was maybe 24"-26" long, maybe 7-8 lbs. Not a monster by any means, but the largest non-catfish I've ever caught. I did hook into another not too long after I released this one, but it popped off at the first head shake, must not have set the hook too well. Disappointing, but hey, 1/2 ain't bad.

I was so close to just giving up and deciding steelheading was not for me, but now I got the fever. Going back out tomorrow to try it again, hopefully get a quality fish to take home for dinner, or at least some better pictures.

Picked up this hen on an Oregon coastal river 3 weeks back. Of all the steelhead I e caught, she takes the cake for hardest fight. She was a chunky wild fish that taped at 33” long with a 19” girth.

Got out on the Slaw with my buddy Ryan at Grey Ghost Guide Service today. He is the best guide up at the Whittaker run, and of course he got us into some fish. It’s been a tough year for everyone I know, was glad to get into some. I almost feel like going with a good guide is kind of like cheating, but I’ll take it😉
