    Eastern WA steelhead or triploid??

    This 20" fish took an orange hot-bead wooly bugger. It was not clipped but the dorsal fin was a bit battered. At the time, I was thinking misclipped hatchery fish, but based on other threads, it might be a triploid that moved into a eastern WA trib.

    Whether fishing westside or eastside rivers, ESLs are my confidence fly. It helps that a resident trout (rainbow, cutthroat, or bull) may find ESLs attractive too and add a tug or two to the rarer grab of a steelhead.
