    Amazing fish. Did you know it was a steelhead right away? I feel like whenever I hook into a fish on the yak that's 20 inches or bigger, my instinct is that I've hooked a steelhead. I still haven't hooked a steelhead in the yak; they've just been brute resident fish.

    Also, it looks like a hen to me, but maybe that's just the angle.

    I thought below Roza, sure, but up that high? I didn't think there was fish passage, but apparently I was wrong.

    Solid fish BTW...sorry for the hijack.

    It was actually my buddy that hooked it.I've never seen anything that big on the Yak before,so I though there could be a chance that it was a steelhead.As soon as I got home I started doing research and it seemed likely.Then a few of the guys on the site confirmed it.
