    Re: Southern Claifornia Steelhead stories....

    Am taking a newbie to Lake Casitas and in checking up on it found a video of a native rainbow in smolt colors going down through the fish ladder on the Ventura river nearby. The fish ladder hasnt had water in it for 5 years so it was probably a rainbow who went "rogue" lol
