Wow, ridiculous fish. Just a dream buck. Fish is dripping water and in prime fighting shape. I'm sure it dislocated his shoulder kicking off into the depths.
Yeah, there are no steelhead here, stay awayNever thought I'd desire to go fish steelhead in California, but I could change my mind!
how's the weather?Yeah, there are no steelhead here, stay away
Gradually warming up, 68 right now, 35 last night. Just drove home from MIL's funeral in North Bend last Friday and that was cold! All rivers blown, lower Sac about 4' below flood and chocolate, with all the snowpack future prospects are bleak. Dams are releasing maximum flows in anticipation of melting snow, so even the tailwaters are blown.how's the weather?
Rivers now look like this...All rivers blown yeah right, that's what I'd say too but it doesn't mean I believe you.
Impressive steelhead to be sure. Makes one wonder how many of this size simply slip on by each season. Maybe I missed it in the link, but did the lady catch it?What a brute! I have never seen a sea run steelhead that shape. Must have had a lot of food and not a lot of range to get that chubby.
Yes she did; on gear.Impressive steelhead to be sure. Makes one wonder how many of this size simply slip on by each season. Maybe I missed it in the link, but did the lady catch it?
Word! The picture would have been of this fish on someone's BBQ.Man that thing would have died for sure if it was a Washington steelhead.
Why do you say that? There's no more retention of wild steelhead allowed in the state.Man that thing would have died for sure if it was a Washington steelhead.
I said that because the subject picture is a California wild steelhead being held out of the water for a picture. Washington state is one of very few and possibly the only state where it is illegal to remove a wild steelhead from the water. It was a joke because the WDFW and some think if a fish is lifted out of the water for 10 seconds that fish is destined to perish.Why do you say that? There's no more retention of wild steelhead allowed in the state.
