Ok, there's a thread on another board about how to tell the difference between a winter and summer steelhead.

I posted 5 photos over there and told people to guess which ones are which.

So, thought you all might enjoy my quiz:

Which ones are winter steelhead and which ones are summer steelhead?

Hint: All of these fish were caught sometime between May and this Friday.

I'll post the results at the end of the week! Enjoy!

Fish 1



Fish 2



Fish 3



Fish 4



Fish 5

i agree with ole man river.
#1 summer, #2 winter, #3 summer, #4 winter, #5 summer; based on the clothes the fisherman is wearing.
i probably have it all goofed up, because #2 looks like a summer fish for sure and #5 looks like a winter fish to me. even if the answer doesn't come out, i'd like to know where the #2 fish came from please.

Although without knowing which river or date it was caught is difficult. Lets say you caught teh first one in may on the Clack, it could be either. However any of those caught in june-oct are 100% summers. The only two that have definate signs of winter fish are 2&5. the others look lots like summers.

I'm just going by the T-shirt pics vs Big coat pics :tongue:

I personally can never tell the difference just by looking at the fish. Can anyone clue me in?
Is it that the winter run is usually more "chrome" looking and the summer run will have the "rainbow" trout markings?
