Sweet Day On The Columbia For Lad

In the Walgamott Pantheon of Greatest Fishing Days ever, one stands — that February morning back in high school yours truly had a pair of those elusive Skykomish River hatchery steelies on the bank by 7:30 a.m.

But I think I’d trade it for the day that young Brayden Loyd recently enjoyed.

Out trolling the mouth of the Deschutes with his grandpa, the 9-year-old not only nailed a steelhead that dwarfs both those brats I caught, but he landed a pretty nice Chinook as well.

Even better, they were his first B-run and his first salmon ever.

Welcome to the sport, Brayden, and good job!
