Biggest doesn't necessarily mean nicest. Let's see those photos of your NICEST fish. Could be nicest fighter, looking, etc.

Here's my personal favorite. A 22 pound (measured) Skykomish River native steelhead, caught and released in 1999.

Ok, low 20's. It went 22 pounds on the measurements.

Here's a smaller fish. Some photos don't do the fish any justice.

I dunno, but this will probably be the only Husky game I'll get to see this year.

I hope the Dawgs can pull off a victory. Might be tough though, as those damn Ducks are looking pretty good.

THE game to watch this week is WSU vs USC. Should be a good game!

Go WSU. That way, it will be really nice when those sucky-Dawgs beat those high-ranked Cougs in the Apple Cup! :grin:

Just bustin' your chops Parker......nice fish!! I'll see if I can scrape up a photo of mine. One was in 89' caught on the Willamette in March it was 19# on the nose. The 2nd, but I think it was bigger, was on the Wind in the spring of 91'. The bummer is my buddy was on the opposite side of the river with the camera so it really is a bad pic. I don't want to speculate but it was bigger than the 19#er by a few #'s in my opinion. I know, I know....excuses, excuses. :rolleyes:

Not the biggest by any means, but it sure was pretty. And it really ticked off my fishing partner, as seen by the look on his face. Siletz river, January 2003

Of all the steelhead I've caught, this one stands out as the most beautiful fish I've ever had the pleasure of landing. The tail fin on this fish is absolutely HUGE. That is a size 12 boot in the picture. I've never caught a fish quite like it since.

Not really all that pretty but at 50 pounds who cares... :wink: Just kiddin' ya Parker. I thought this buck would be close to 20# when I caught him last year but on the measurements it wasn't quite 17#. Looks even smaller on the pic since it is laying on its side a little. I was more concerned about getting a quick pic and back in the water. Roger's seen this pic before too.

No photo, but mine would be a chubby girl I caught in March of 1987 on the South Coquille. She was chrome bright, 34" long and 16 3/4 pounds.

In the April edition of STS magazine, there is an Add for Andes Fishing Line that shows a guide and some social degenerate holding a fat Sandy buck. Said degenerate would be moi.

When I told Tim the guide that I thought that the fish had me hung up, because it was bigger than any steelehead I had ever hooked and it had just stopped in that hole, he stepped over the bow seat, tightened the drag, and said, " hung up, hell, there's nothing in that hole to get hung up on. Now get the fish to the boat because it's probably a big native I don't want you tiring that thing to death."

Even after tightening the drag the fish made two nice runs when we got it near the boat. Unvelievable fish.

This one isn't my biggest or necessarily the nicest looking. It's my most recent 20 ish caught last spring.



Please excuse the picture quality. It's a scanned 4X6 35mm photo. That's why it's a bit grainy. :smile:
