Well after flirting all fall with the 30 pound mark, John finally put us across the threshold. This beast bottomed out my Boga Grip, and we had to borrow a higher scale from a fellow guide that was fishing nearby. 32.5 lbs and just shy of 44 inches long.
Steelhead have started to show in modest numbers, and more salmon continue to show up. A very bountiful fall. It's an absolutely beautiful time of year to be on the river. Make sure you get out and enjoy it.
