    NW steel I agree with seeing a lot more 18-22" chrome bright males in June. I've seen and caught several over the last couple years especially and they are easy to ID as a mini steelhead. I've also tangled with a lot of resident rainbows and from the pic this seems like a classic example of a post spawn rainbow that moved out into the main channel and is on the feed. The larger rainbows are really migratory and move around the system a lot making them a sort of rare catch. In a month that rainbow Daniel is holding will be a thick and healthy badass sculpin hunting trout. They are an amazing fish and every bit as worthy as a steelhead. Who knows that rainbow may have just finished spawning with a wild winter steelhead or two.

    But I could be wrong! image.jpg

    Only Dan could make a rainbow so damn famous and talked about.

    You're like the Oprah of fly fishing, except ginger and not black.

    The fishing on the Skykomish has taken a serious nose dive, I've floated the lasr 5 days with only one dolly that came off at the boat.

    That's what happens when you have a proverbial circus of sleds, boats, and bankies in every piece of holding water for two weeks straight.

    In another thread you asked for citations as evidence. Maybe you can provide some to back up the allegation you make here.

    "They" = who?
    "Bay" : where in the bay and on which days, specifically please?
    "Mouth" : how many on on which days, specifically again, please?

    Thanks. Some of us like to keep track of what's really going on, and it can get laborious to separate that from the rumors sometimes.
