    Looks like an adipose fin to me in the shot next to the Rod...

    Only thing questionable going on there are the neeps in August!

    Yeah, it was a wild fish that I thought I would post on here for the entire steelhead community to freak out on me. No adipose fin bro, that is a hatchery fish.

    Yeah, I left my wet-wading stuff at home by accident. The neoprenes were great early in the morning, but by 10am I was kickin myself for forgetting that stuff. Water temp was 62 at noon

    So are you calling me a poacher or a moron? Either the fin is there or it isn't. It ain't rocket science.

    Totally kidding Bro. I just thought it would be unjust if there was a picture posted of a steelhead that no one scrutized. Nice fish. I have yet to catch one on the swing.

    Good for you! I was looking at that very hole last Thursday morning but didn't put my line in because I couldn't see anything. Goes to show you, you can't catch a fish without a bug. Great eye :cool:

    Green apetizers fer sure! Come to think of it, some big 5 finger leaves would make a great garnish! Maybe a slice of lemon and cantelope or orange...

    That's not even close to an adipose fin :(
