8.0 lb. Steelhead caught by Brian Andrew fishing in Oregon on 04/16/08
26.0" / 8.0 lb. Steelhead caught by Brian Andrew fishing on Wednesday April 16, 2008 at 18:35 near Eugene in Lane County, Oregon (OR), United States North America using a Salmon Egg

After work a friend and I had discovered some great bank access in some fairly swift water on the Willamette River. I had some cured salmon eggs with my father's special touch,and I was hoping to get lucky. Right after telling my friend that this cast was going to catch us something, I casted at 10:00 position, Immediately clicked the reel over and by the time my bait was at the 2:00 position, my pole folded over and I knew right away I had lucked out with a late winter steelhead that had somehow made the mistake of running through the shoot at the wrong time.
I caught this 8 pounder on 8lb. test and a 7.5 ft ultra light rod with a abu garcia ultra-light reel. That is what was amazing. I thought for sure with the 15 minute battle It took to bring it in, that I was going to lose it for sure. But indeed I tired the beauty out and took home a 8lb. 26" hatchery steelhead.

You predicted it! But if you are anything like me you predict a big fish on every cast ;-) Seriously, congrats on a nice fish.
