Three good friends, Sean, Riaz & Thad took a whirlwind guided steelhead tour, traveling from the Bay Area and fishing the Trinity, Rogue and Klamath over a long weekend getaway. They opted to enjoy each other’s company in one boat with guide Craig Nielsen, and managed it exceptionally well. They all caught fish and Thad came up big on the Klamath landing a chunky colorful buck on the afternoon of their last day. The fish put up a spirited battle but Thad was up to the challenge and landed the heavy brute after a lengthy chase downriver. The fish had considerable length but the girth really set it apart as a Shasta Trout “Hawg of Fame” entry.
