In Topic: For Sale Steelhead Flies

The style in the first and second pic seem to be very popular. Every time I go stateside most of the fish are decorated with those things, it's like there's one in every fin.


In Topic: Salmon and Trout Identification

28 October 2019 - 05:13 PM

I catch Rainbow/Steelhead nearly everyday, in my backyard spring and fall every year(outside Owen Sound). You'll get the occasional Chinook, Laker or Brown, but rarely this time of year. Have heard there's the odd coho, I have never personally caught one. Out of the hundreds of Bows I've caught over the years none have looked quite like this. Maybe a hybrid? The tail really throws me off. So I'm hoping someone in this forum might help. I did not fight like a Bow either, came in like a laker (no real fight). The colors it flashed rolling at the boat reminded me of bass (not shape just color). Maybe everyone will immediately say it's a lake phase steelhead, if so great, this is just the first one I've seen that has made me question my salmonid identification skills.

 

Congratulations on your first coho. 100%

Person who posted it took it down within hours after being (rightfully) flamed for it. Vid showed blatant poaching with bare hands and nets, and right in front of little kids.

 

However, MNR do have a copy of it :mrgreen: and ARE pursuing it.

My digital and analog scale both said 3 lb 3 oz.

 

 

 

And yet ....

 

 

 

5 or 9 lbs by the looks of it

 

 

I'd say about 4.2 pounds. The guy holding it is about a buck seventy, give or take a few ;)
