    Man, you do get into some nice fish. Good work.

    By the way, where's your cigarette? Hoping to see some smokes in the mix..

    Nice pics.

    Hey the fish is on his way to Salmon Heaven anyway. Again, as long as it is legal, give the guy a break.

    Good grief! Here we go again. Please, please, please spare us the C&R lectures. Just tell the guy what a nice fish he caught and move on to the next post.

    Hey rainbow,

    Don't let 'em give you crap! :WINK

    I'm glad you're catching them and letting them go. Nice fish. That's one dark bad boy!

    I'll try to refrain myself from stating the obvious this time.

    I was actually wondering what type of fish that is. Almost looks like a steelhead, or mabey a hen silver. Steelhead usually stay somewhat fresh looking though even up to spawning, and silvers get red colored. That one is almost black. Whatever it is, that has to be the darkest fish I've seen in a while.

    Coho, Isn't it? The long anal fin rules out a steelhead, too dark to see the tail spots, but it's got the white gum line of a silver. That Nema -- full of tanic acid.

    I'd say it's a steelie. A very DARK steelie. I haven't seen the rosy red cheeks on anything else.

    But, of course, I could be wrong! :DUNNO

    Steelhead/Silver? red cheeks I'll give you that one, but the white gums, and (very acute noticable) black inner mouth...my bets on silver.

    I'd say silver, due to the long anal fin and white gums.
