Both Pete Dube and Marc Leblanc have both landed Steelhead in well known Atlantic Salmon water in the Maritimes. Pete's came from the the smaller branch of the Margaree and Marc had a client land one on the Petite just this year. Needless to say that both fish wound up on the local biologists desk.

I agree that it's bad that farmed Salmon are showing up in numbers with the wild fish, how about non-Native Steelhead there as well?!?! I've heard these are farmed fish. Which begs the question, why are we farming non-Native species in the same waters as the Natives? About the last thing I want on the end of my line is some mix of the two, though it would be quite the fight I'm sure.
