14.0 lb. Steelhead caught by Brian Andrew fishing in Oregon on 01/11/08
32.0" / 14.0 lb. Steelhead caught by Brian Andrew fishing on Friday January 11, 2008 at 07:31 near Elkton in Douglas County, Oregon (OR), United States North America using a Salmon Egg

My father, close friend and I were just beginning a side drift and my line hit the drift last. A few moments later .... BAM!!!!! the pole went down like somebody wanted to take it home with them. The beautiful native ran on me twice then tried heading for the boat to get free and I basically had my pole in the water because I was not letting it go. After about 5 or 6 minutes it began to tire and slowly was half breaching out of the water towards the boat and my dad quickly grabbed the net and there you go, A 14 lb. 32" native winter steelhead. The worst part is that I caught this beauty on the Main Stream of the Umpqua River, and since 2007 a person is only allowed to keep Adipose fin - clipped steelhead. So I got the picture and away she went.
