    Re: River Steelhead Brag 2018

    I released them unharmed. Considering they are one of the few native species I don't think they affect the Eco system and neither should you. Great fighters and I hear they are tasty to eat too.

    That would be your opinion. Striper predation is merely a red herring propagated by the water grabbers to defend and/or justify increased exports and the damage being caused as a result. Many experts on the topic tend to disagree with your statement

    Definitely a Salmon - in addition to the spots like Calndn pointed out, you can tell by the shape of the anal fin - long and shallow with 15-19 rays vs a Steelhead that is short and deep with 8-12 rays.
