    kruggy, thanks for the kudos but not mine to accept. You can view them full size in the Spey forum here, threads 'April fools fish' and 'Another slump buster'.

    I wasn't crafty enough to find the means of linking the thumbnail shot.. Getting some tech help now, maybe I can fix it later.

    Again, congrats with yours! April is a big goose egg for me so far. Maybe thursday :)

    Good fishing..

    To me fishing is going out and having a good time. Maybe I'll catch something and maybe I won't. I'm not after a trophy, I just like to get out there and try to fool them very smart fish into thinking what I have on the end of my line as food.

    I have caught Steelhead and also salmon out of the river with flies. I just prefer to fish for trout. It can be 6" or into the pounds. I just enjoy trout fishing better.

    Now, if I could just get all my honey-dos out of the way I could get back out and chase the Browns and Rainbows.

    Playing inside a dome doesn't count. Real baseball is played outside. :ray1:

    I don't even get as stoked about steelhead from Alaska, Oregon, or some rivers in B.C. let alone the GLs. I have specific tastes and they are for Skagit/Sauk and the Stilly fish. I will fish those other places and have a great time but homewaters are always a different thing than far away waters.

    That pig of Ross' is the kind of fish I have been day dreaming about for the last 15 years. I did get one but I want another. ;)

    Thats one thing I have experienced on a fly rod is some good old fashion trout fishing with some nice dries. Here in Ohio we dont have any natural trout only stocked in a couple places so maybe get a chance to try for them. But much luck to you OLD MAN on your upcoming trout adventures and hopes you land a one in a life time size trout.

    "Just accept it." Great answer Dr. Topwater. Okay, since you took my question in the typical defensive fashion, no, I will not just accept it. The question was geared towards Kurt, Salmo, Will or one of the other biologists we have on this site. In fact the this is a technical question, and I thought I made that clear but you seem to have missed the whole boat. From a scientific standpoint, maybe there has been a broadened definition to steelhead and maybe lake run rainbows now are accepted as steelhead by the scientific community. And maybe someone like you who has the balls to tell me to just accept it has no business getting involved in something that from a scientific standpoint completely interests me. I don't give a rat's ass where a big rainbow is landed. A big rainbow whether it be landed in the Sauk or in Ohio is a big rainbow. Ocean going, freshwater running, they are all beautiful to me. You attached the strings to my question and then gave me an uneducated dumbassed answer. More of less "Because I said so". So once again, someone who knows what the hell they are talking about, are lake running rainbows who grow up in an area as large as the Great Lakes and then run rivers to spawn now known in the scientific community as steelhead? I also thought about the fact that the Great Lakes have to have some saltwater input in them and maybe this is enough to trigger the sea going instincts? Just throwing it out there. Coach

    What impresses me about the GLs is the success story that the pacific salmon and steelhead/lake run rainbows have had.
    the GLs and the rivers that flowed into the GLs were wasted, not wasted beyond repair and now have been repaired and have great runs of fish in them.
    Kinda makes me wonder what is wrong with the picture here in the PNW.
    Maybe we (the PNWners) need to take a lesson in fish management.
    Just something to think about.

    Kruggy1 sorry for the test hijack...shotgunner like this? Ross' April Fools photo went in fine. Golfman65's required resizing down to "tiny" in photobucket to make it come up as an image. Not going in as thumbnails, not sure why. Maybe because I've pirated the photos from somewhere else?

    Kruggy1, Ross and Golfman65, all damn nicel looking fish no matter what they are called!
