Hello folks,

As usual, my big one got away - hook slipped. Must have been at least 36" though. By tomorrow, it'll have been 38"! :wink: Got a beautiful 21" rainbow to the bank though.

I gotta talk to Cutch. He needs to check the ODFW regulations. Trout over 20" are considered Steelhead in Oreogn streams and rivers :lol: :lol: :wink:

You're right, Dave but I wanted those monster Native Rainbows in the McKenzie,...because they are there. LOL They are classified as Steelhead but do not travel to the ocean and come back. (I know, I followed one all summer and it never ventured more than a few hundred yards,...never caught it either.) :wink:

The Summer Steelhead enter McKenzie a bright silver color. After a few weeks in fresh water they turn colors and look much like a native Rainbow. :wink:

So, a native 23" Rainbow Trout will look somewhat different than a fresh out of the ocean Steelhead. :wink:

Hi,
On this river mine has been a 38" steelhead but I've only fished each pool once so far! :D

my biggest fish

Postby Bobcat John » Thu Nov 15, 2007 1:26 am

I gat a 37" steelhead on the Dechutes River I wasn't sure I was going to get that one in I have found that in a long fight the hook pulls out and I keep trying though.

Thanks
I've spent the most important time of my life fishing. What was left over I wasted.

Hey Bobcat John,

I think I caught te same steelhead you had, mine was also 37"at the Deschutes river. I caught that one in Experienced mode and had a tough drill to get it in. I use a forcefeedback joystick what give hell of excitement in drilling big ones.

Greetings richwest.

I thought mine of 37" was good, but now you've spurred me on to fish the
site more often! My B+J fly accounts for many SeaBass and I would like
to know if other anglers have tried it yet? If and when, perhaps you could
post results.-------TIGHT LINES---Mike :wink: :!: :?:
