9.1 lb. Steelhead caught by Jeff Steigelmann fishing in New York on 03/01/09
28.0" / 9.1 lb. Steelhead caught by Jeff Steigelmann fishing on Sunday March 01, 2009 at 14:30 near Altmar in Oswego County, New York (NY), United States North America using a Red Sucker Spawn 12 a Steelhead Fly

Salmon River in Altmar, N.Y. Another cold morning saw limited action. After lunch it warmed up a bit and in early afternoon the fish woke up. Several fish fought, 3 landed. Plenty of action up and down the river throughout the afternoon. I had been using Stonefly Nymphs, all varieties, not much luck. Changed it up a bit with San Juan worms, Beadheads, etc. Finally, in desperation, threw on a Sucker Spawn and got hit first cast. Got lucky, I guess. This female was fat with eggs. FISH ON!!!

That's a nice fish...who tied the flies? I bet your net-man was under control to land this one. The "Riv" was running too high last week to get one like your pic. FISH ON!
