Dave`s dad`s native!!

I took a fella, Dave, his dad and their friend to a productive lil spot. Randy( Dave`s dad) caught his 1st steelhead EVER and was to humble to be in the pic. So I, Damon, did the honors. Dave is holding his catch. Good times, watching a fisherperson catch their first steel!! The friend, Rose also had a great fight but that fish was able to wiggle free.

Wow the first 2 commenters are pretty quick to jump to conclusions about what they think is a native fish. Hope your not that quick when you retain a fish on your own. You may accidentially retain a native since you can't pick one out in a photo

It put the pics up in the wrong order, sorry for the misunderstanding. I am holding Randy`s nate for release. Dave is holding the hatchery fish Dave ("his catch") caught. I said that, right up there. Have a wonderful day!

That my friends is NOT a native!!! Those are 2 different fish, held by 2 different people. I mean it`s so obvious it`s the dorsal fin in the pic of the HATCHERY. You`ll notice the pic of ME, Damon, holding the NATIVE in the water for release.WAKE UP

Amazing how people that fish alow people who dont fish hold a native steelhead like that out of the water amazing how some people want to destroy our native runs. Katu should be banned for allowing pictures like this what a joke.

You should not be holding that native fish that way, we don't do it that way in Alaska.
