Coastal Steelhead

Headed out this weekend in the middle of the rain and 30 mph winds along the Oregon coast in hopes of just seeing a steelhead jump. The day started out perfect, while I landed this 13 pound hen on the first cast.  It must have been my lucky day because a few casts later, I caught and quickly released a chrome 8 pound native buck.


My action for the day was then done. The downpour quickly turned the small coastal river into a brown mess sending me home early and wondering what could have been if the weather cooperated.
