READER PHOTOS 1 2 1 King of mooching. Dave Walsh from Kirkland, Wash. with a 20-pound king caught on 20-pound test while mooching a cut plug herring at Point No Point. WINNER 2 Picture perfect. Float fishing the Bogachiel River on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, Marshall Glasscock landed this beautiful winter steelhead while float fishing. 3 A blast from the past. Richard Zetteryall from Creswell, Oregon submitted this photo of himself when he was 4-yearsold. Fishing for sea-run cutthroat he stumbled into this summer steelhead from the Siletz River. “My father told me that I bragged about landing this beautiful fish for a really long time,” he writes. “I was hooked from that point.” 4 Marital bliss! Jeri Runyon fished Wadda Island in mid-July last year with her husband and landed this 42-pound king. After 20 minutes of fighting with the fish (and her husband), she landed it. In the process they bent the net over the gunwale getting it into the boat. And she’s happy to report that they’re still married. 5 First salmon! Ron Craft from Sandy, Oregon submitted this photo of his daughter Skylar and her first coho, which she caught on the Sandy River. “She reeled in this beauty 3 4 but was still hesitant to actually touch it,” he writes, nothing that she did the bonking. 6 First steelhead! Nineyear-old Freya Bodenner hooked and landed her very first steelhead while drift fishing the Cowlitz River near Castlerock, Wash., with her Grandfather Greg Kluh. 5 WINNER: Congratulations to Marshall Glasscock from Oakland, Calif.
