We saw this creature Saturday at the park. First person to correctly guess what it is wins, um, bragging rights?

Yes, the photo is murky, but the creature was pretty well camouflaged! Good luck.

    Dang Anna beat me to it! Salmon. Now what species? :0)

  3. Wow, you guys are good–I should have guessed salmon, though…

  4. Racquel Says:

    I could tell it was a fish. 🙂

    A-hem….pardonez-moi, s’il vous plait…”One man’s fish is another’s poisson…” ~unknown
    Nice catch — with your camera. :-]

    What’s the name of the park?

  7. Megan Says:

    HA! I SEE IT! Wait, was that not the whole competition?

  8. AnnA Says:

    Yes, it’s a male steelhead–who can swim back to the ocean and does not die after spawning. Your state has an ongoing program to up the numbers of this species. The speckled square tail gave it away. Am I correct? They can live in salt and fresh water.

    If not, it might be a coho who live mostly in small streams?
