A Record Steelhead from the Sandy

Joel La Follette - Thursday, December 07, 2017

Front page news from the Morning Oregonian on February 10th , 1910 

Dr. E. C. McFarland Makes Record Catch in Sandy River.

Dr. E. C. McFarland, a dentist, yesterday made a record catch with rod and line, when he succeeded in landing a steelhead salmon with a No. 6 hook after a struggle lasting 45 minutes. The catch was made at the Sandy River bridge, near the Sandy post office yesterday morning, and the young nimrod is much pleased with his feat.

This steelhead weighed 20 1/2 pounds. This as far as known is the record catch with a No. 6 hook and a six ounce rod. Steelheads weighing 20 pounds are rarely caught, for Government statistics we'll give this as the record weight attained by this species of salmon. A few weeks ago a 16-pound steelhead was landed, but with larger tackle than used by McFarland yesterday.
