    Females have longer hair than males, most of the time ;)
     

  3. Females stay more silver when they are in the rivers for awhile, whereas males turn dark. Also, the male developes a kyped jaw.

    the eggs from local fish are the best.
     
  9. I would never keep them just to eat...
    I would though to have enough spawn to make my own sacs...
    I think the steelhead fishing is one of the best examples of C&R that we have in this state...
    Bass fishing maybe more so but steelhead is next in line unless you talk to the carpers ;)

    SO much information my head hurts LOL
