December Coastal Creek Steelhead

A few days ago, I caught these two hatchery steelhead chromers on a coastal creek. Today, I saw elk, eagles, spawning coho salmon (third photo), and cantaloupe-sized agates.  I hiked 6 miles along the water in old growth forest without seeing one other human.  There was no cell reception so it was easier to think.  I honestly don't know how I survived away from here.

At the fish processing market, I overheard this: "See the straight cut on this fish? That's how you can tell my girlfriend got it, and not a seal."
