    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.

    The fin right below the tail is the thing that screams salmon to me. it’s much bigger than a steelhead. Not including the jaw, spots, and color. A spawning steelhead looks like a really colorful rainbow trout with a bright red band. That fish looks brown. But whatever.

    It's definitely a salmon. Here are the spots enlarged. One steelhead the other salmon. Just looking at in normal size you can see it's a salmon clearly. Good job on all the steel guys.
