    I thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane and try to list the rivers that I have landed a steelhead on. Here's my list:
    N.Fork Stilly, Sauk, Skagit, Queets, Samish, Methow, Kispiox, Buckley, Morice, Thompson, Nimpkish.

    Its remarkable that the Snoho system and no other OP rivers are mentioned. Truthfully, that's mostly due to a weak effort on my part. I have never fished the Snake rivers either. In fact, aside from an epic failure of a trip to the Klickitat, the Met is the only CR river I have fished.
    I'm going to try and add an Oregon stream or 2 this fall. I have never fished Oregon at all.
    There are a couple rivers that I have fished and not succeeded on that I will return to; the Skeena, Babine, Susqwa, Gold, Heber, and Klick, are at the top of that list.
    One thing I truly love about steelheading is where it takes me and the beauty of the rivers. Hopefully I'll fish a couple new rivers and add them to the list of successful ones this season.

    Go Sox,
    Cds

    Wow, those are impressive lists! This is all I have, from most to least fish. Rogue is next on my list. Would love to fish the Trinity. You guys have scared me away from WA rivers with all your doom and gloom!
