    Nice fish Ard! I need to get me a pair of those wool fingerless gloves...

    And maybe soon, I'll actually catch another steelhead to post on here! Not today though

    On my second trip up to the Salmon River this fall for steelhead, I also landed this baby -

    and this pretty Altantic Salmon (or possibly a brown trout)

    nice fish but the "atlantic salmon" is actually a brown

    a few people weighed in on the Atlantic or Brown ? identification of this fish when I landed it-
    which is often confusing - examining the tail, and where the maxillary of the upper jaw falls under the eye identifies this fish as an Atlantic -
    we thought it was a tough call on this guy -

    I am just going by personal experience as it looks too odd to be a grilse, and this late in the year it's colour is just off IMO, if it was a summer fish it could pass as one but I really must go with a brown. Plus the shape of the head, body, and the spotting going down to the belly, I have just never seen a salmon like that.
