Salmon and Steelhead

Is there any salmon fisherman here? I love fishing salmon and steelhead, I have 4 rivers within 20 miles of home where i fish, The columbia, willamette, sandy and clackams, all have salmon, steelhead. The willamette and columbia have sturgon that i fish in late spring, theres nothing like reeling in a 12 foot sturge that will fight you for a couple hours and just plain kick your butt. The biggest salmon I've caught was a king and weight 35lbs and the biggest steelhead was 19lbs, both are fun fish to catch.

Love going for those

I love fishing for both.  Unfortunately we don't have either of those where I live.  I get a chance once a year or once every other year when visiting the in-laws in Oregon.  I love smoking salmon with Alder wood.  That's the best stuff.
