What is it? Before I get the "Don't pick up wild/native fish" lecture, let me explain this one...because I have a question to go with it. I took this snapshot from my head-cam video. You can't really tell from this pic, but what I can tell you, is that when I was landing it - there was no doubt in my mind that it was a hatchery fish. From the top view (when I was looking down at it) there was the obvious healed scar from the clpping process. However, I didn't notice how much of the fin was left, until I picked this one up. Now, I'm no steelhead slayer by any means, but after 12 plus years at this, at 20 or so a year, I think I have a pretty good eye when I'm landing these fish to tell whether it's a hatch brat or not. However, when I catch a wild fish I don't even bother using the net, unless I can't release the fish on the first try with one hand. Therefor, I don't have any picks of wild fish to compare it to, because I don't take them out of the water to get a good enough shot of them. Notice by my hand, with the tail curving down, the fin still barely sticks up. Which you can imagine when I was landing it, it didn't stand out that much. It seems to me, that I've been catching more and more of these "half clipped" fish over the past year or so. It's kind of frustrating. Have any of you here experienced this? The good news is, I did go 4 for 5 to hand on Thursday. 2 brats, one wild, and this one - which I released on account of not wanting to risk it.
