A pretty hen steelhead caught and released, fishing a North Shore tributary of Lake Superior.
Dog makes sure fish is legit, looks like 28 inches.
Phil's first steelhead fly-fishing in a river, a big healthy male with a big kype! A grand moment.
Not a bad looking hatchery fish.
Let's bonk that hatchery fish with the Big Kype stick! (Look back there! I think it's a fisherwoman!)
