    is that a partial clip or a nate? I cant really tell. Either way great job, gorgeous fish. if that is a nate, its a pretty freakin sweet early run.

    I know, Zen was just answering the question. And I was not rippin on Zen, just puttin in my 2 cents. I never really paid attention when I caught it. I assumed it was a fall nate due to the presence of an adipose and body size alone compared to the other hatchery fish that are in the river.See my other photo in Gallery. (A definite hatch with nada for adipose and a much slimmer body line.) I would call the above fish a fall fish as opposed to an early winter.
