I didn't weigh them but I have caught several in the 42"-45" range. In the creeks I fished in SE Alaska most were around 36".

The blind squirrel hooked up a 14.5lb steelhead trolling diver and bait in the carver slot above the bridge on the Clackamas. Got it New Years day in 2001. Nice Buck.

Caught my biggest fish plunking for summer steelies on the Columbia last year. Didn't get a chance to weigh it as it was a nate and I was trying to revive & release it, but the guys there gauged it around 13 lbs. Not a huge fish...but boy did she put up a heck of a fight :shocked:

43.5" X 24.5" native buck January 30, 2001. According to the formula came in over 33lbs. Could have been the new Washington State winter record? Mabey. Caught, measure, photographed and released unharmed.
