Reply To: Coleridge Rainbows and Salmon Identification

Allan Burgess

Thanks for that Mike. I know in the past I’ve looked at a fish sometimes and been quite sure it was a rainbow, a brown, or a landlocked salmon, without really knowing why I was sure I had it right. If that makes any sense! The anal fin checking method, shown by Hamish Stevens, is a good quick way to be certain. Some of the maiden rainbows in Lake Coleridge can look just like silver coloured landlocked salmon at times. I agree with you about looking forward to Coleridge Opening Day. It gets in your blood after a few years!
