Is this a rainbow or a steelhead in my profile pic?

Discussion in 'Steelhead' started by cboston1617, Jan 16, 2012.

  1. I just caught this about 2 weeks ago on the Yak. Identification between a local rainbow and an anadromous steelhead appears to have endless discussion.
    Can anyone confirm with certainty whether the fish in my profile pic is indeed a 21" bow?

    Thank you
  2. Looks like a healthy Bow to me
  3. Nice fish, you should keep it in the water and keep our hands to yourself.:thumb:
  4. Yeah, I agree with Evan. Besides the fish- nice one- that's a cool looking logjam in the back of you in that photo, that beetle pattern on the log especially.
  5. I agree with all of the above, rainbow.
  6. Typical rez Yakima bow.
  7. I would say Rainbow as well. Nice.

    What is the fish in your profile pic? Is that a trout or a steelhead?
  8. Sweet Fish!
  9. nice bow!
  10. bow for sure...
  11. Nice fish. Nothing wrong with a quick photo op.
  12. Gary - I hope you're just being a sarcastic troll - especially since you have a nice slab of rocky ford meat OUT OF THE WATER OMG OMG OMG OMG in your profile picture.
  13. Assuming that is a picture of you in your avatar?
  14. Looks like a Harvest Trout/ Sea Run Cutty. I caught a Sea Run this Fall on the East Fork Lewis, Hands down most BEAUTIFUL Fish ive ever caught. It was 17.5"!
  15. We all gotta learn the hard way. Hatchery V Wild
  16. Great looking fish (rainbow) -- man is the Yakima way underrated or what!
  17. Nice Rainbow.
  18. Fine to lift, but wet your hands. Thats a really nice yak bow so it deserves the respect :p.
  19. What? I'd thought for sure you'd tag this an an Atlantic Salmon!
  20. That was a hatchery fish? ahh, my bad.

    To the OP: looks like some fun water & very nice fish!
