Posts have been a bit slow on here so I thought I would share what I have been doing to keep the duck boat wet this summer.

Not all year in the Columbia, but they pass through for much of the year. Steelies have a summer run (peaking right now) and a Winter run. Spring, Summer, and Fall we have several different runs of salmon and shad that go through to provide us some entertainment until duck season. Caught these two fish the same location I hunt.

A couple more from Monday's outing. I was the last person to arrive at the hot spot, but the first to leave. 10 pounder is my largest hatchery fish I've caught this year, but I have landed a 12-15 lb Native fish I released.

Oh, ok. How old does a fish like the biggest one have to be? I heard around four or so?

Those look exactly like the steelhead we get on the great lakes, must be the same strain. Biggest one we had this year was 16.5, but thats unusually large, here big ones run 9-12. Nice fish! Great fighters.
