    I say LLS but that caudal fin seems like it should be more forked. Wish I could get a look at the vomerine teeth! It was caught in an inland lake in New York if that makes any difference.

    My gut says salmon, but I've been wrong before!

  4. Well if you know the body of water it has a fin clip and you can probably track it down. It looks like an ATL to me.

    Looks 200% salmon. I actually can’t figure how they get confused with browns

  7. Juveniles it can be hard to tell closley related salmoniod species apart even for a trained eye. That's where anatomy comes into play, lateral line scale counts, mouth teeth rows, fin rays, etc. Parr and adults are not so bad. But you start getting them in their pure silver lake/ocean forms in the 1.5 year range and even I occasionally get stumped.

    The hitch lies in that once you try to lay down rules over how a trout should look, they break them!!! You can have parameters, and guidelines, but the only rule for a trout is that they can ALWAYS break the rules!!!

    Just my opinion based on 55 years of close observation, but I'm stickin' to it!

    Angler did not list that on the angler forum which is typical. Usually want to keep it a secret.

    Found it was Lake Colby in the Lake Placid area of NY. Is stocked annually with 5 to 14 pound broodstock salmon. Case closed.

    I’m referring to the mature adult fish that most any of us would possibly be getting in for taxi work. However even smolt Atlantic look quite a bit different then browns

    Depends on what strain and time of year Mudbat. There are some lake subspecies and sea run brown trout even as adults that are dead ringers for salmon. I saw where 30 percent of landlocked salmon in the Great Lakes do not have forked tails.
     
  13. lloks like a brown to me based on spots, tail, head shape. The LLS I see have an "X" type spots, a pointier head and forked tail.

    I understand there is an area by the finger lakes that holds seeforellen browns. It looks similar to ones I’ve seen from that area before.

    I get that. There was a post somewhere on something where I had posted that 30% number before. I’ve got photos of broomed tailed Atlantics that are Square. Just me personally have never question them. They both look very distinct to me. But that’s just me

    This is an Atlantic salmon without a doubt.
