I caught my first steelhead yesterday. I was fishing the upper Klickitat and I hooked her swinging a #4 Skunk pattern. She was an approx. 8 pounds wild fish. I got both hands on her but she broke my leader as I tried to get my camera out so no pics. This was my first time steelheading so I feel pretty good about the catch... I probably only had to cast about 500 times to hook one! The river was pretty high but the color wasn't bad, it was my first time on the Klickatat... what a gorgeous river and valley! It was a hot day, 100 degrees +/- so it was nice to wade in the cold water.
