Got this hatchery buck quite a few years ago. Roger D named him “big red”. Don’t think I’d keep one this dark nowadays. Biggest or second biggest hatchery steelhead I’ve caught. 35 1/4 inches, did not weigh
it. Long arming a bit😀

This is the last salmon I caught before retiring from the ocean. Nice chinook on a pink hoochie out of Newport. The catch of my life is my first mate. We have been fishing together for over 50 years. Going to find a picture of her big chinook.

Mrs. Irishrover with a big chinook she landed in 2004 at Bouy 10. Largest chinook she has landed and that fish was all over the river. We were fishing near bouy 29. Whole herring for bait. Had to give her some help holding the fish for the photo.

Does anyone else think fish caught while angling with Tanner should be disqualified from the photo contest? Fishing with Tanner can be a little like cheating
