    Is there such thing as a fake nate? aren't they either hatchery or native?

    mike, there is certainly nothing that comes close to a true native. I'm not sure Idaho's hatchery policy (perhaps only wild broodstock are not clipped) but they appear to not clip many of their hatchery fish. In this case a worn or deformed dorsal is a dead give away, as they've been raised in a concrete tank. Real nates however.....are REAL sweet

    To clear this up, the Nez Pierce does not clip their hatchery fish, while the states does...
