I hit a week know trib yesterday with my Dad just to get some exercise.

Didnít expect much with no real substantial rain or decent water levels but I took a shot at it.

A couple of nice Chinook and to my surprise two beautiful Atlanticís. One of the chinooks had a mangled jaw from what I would guess was a injury from a spoon early in life.

Atlanticís look way more like fresh silver browns than any Steelhead. First Atlanticís have big spots on their gill plate and their spots on their backs are like an x where Steelhead spots are more round. Steelhead also have spots all over their tails where Atlanticís do not. If your having difficulty just do a google search for identification of each species. Itís not difficult to tell a Steelhead from an Atlantic at all once you research both species.

Nice Ticís!
Well stated above. The deep fork in the atlanticís tail is a dead give away as well.
Cheers

Some Atlanticís do t have the deep fork. I went 5/8 on the today mixed in with a ton of Chinook and one brown. The Atlantic here doesnít have that deep of a fork tail.
