    anytime you see a wild Steelhead on the Stilly give thanks. after all that river has been through.
    poor river has taken more sediment load than the Toutle . At least according to the figures i last read.
    way to go.

    Nice job! What a gorgeous native steelie. That is a prized little gem you were graced by for sure.
    Just try to pick up a 3wt weight now and go hike/fish for some small trout on a small stream....nada, don't think that will happen for a while. ;)

    Nice pic Troutpounder! Pay no attention to the d-bags on here. Most of them have never caught a Steelhead.
