    did you know that once a chum hits 30 lbs. it will transform into a chinook? so if you ever catch a 30+ lb. chum its actually really a chinook, so better check the regs!

    Don't be mad at me you broke the law just for a hero shot. Even it's not a steelhead as you claim a fish like that deserves more respect. Steelhead already have a hard enough time they don't need every yahoo lifting them out of water.

    I know the regs it's says sea run rainbow over 20 is a steelhead. You just claimed that was a 27 inch fish so by the state that's a steelhead. Plus you have no way to tell if that's a resident or sea run fish so why take it out? Oh wait you have to get a hero shot can't forget that

    The absolute only way you can be sure you won't hurt a fish when you catch it is not to fish.

    That's an awesome fish! Don't post anything on this forum. There are a lot of assholes. People make mistakes people. A gentle reminder is just fine.

    Im gonna assume that if Mcnasty's fish was a summer steelhead on the yakima in july... or probably anywhere really, which it wasnt... it would be a significantly brighter fish.
