Steelhead Fishing

Matt went fishing last night on the river and caught his first Steelhead of the year. A Steelhead is a rainbow trout that is headed back home from a trip to the ocean. It's born in fresh water and at a certain time in its life makes it's way to the Pacific. Nice fishing Matt! Congratulations!

Wow - my husband would shock me to death if he ever caught anything that big! So far, after 13 summers at the lakehouse I'm buying my fish at the market! haha!
