Good to See

I brought an unspawned winter-run native buck of about 12 pounds to hand today...excellent to still see wild winter steelhead around.

Sure hope he was able to find a mate...

Nice fish Ryan!

Just curious, how did you determine winter and unspawned?

thanks

Sinktip-
I dont brag about 'boots'....do notice I made no mention of the chromers I tied into before that fish.

Juro-
The green, red and orange coloration was an obvious sign it was a winter-run as I have never seen an early July summer-run that dark, plus it had an adipose and perfect fins...no wild summer-runs go up as far as Fortson.

Plus he had a big kype and his belly was not sunken in like a kelt and he still had tons of fight in him.
