    Steelie. Those fish out Erie and Ontario seem to have a really greening cast to them going off the ones I’ve seen

    Oncorhynchus mykiss my a**, oh, wait, never mind. ::) (irrideus)

  17. Of course it is an oncorhynchus mykiss but would it be of the irideus subspecies or the gairdneri????

    I thought the gairdneri species name went out back in 89' and got replaced with mykiss?
