8.0 lb. Steelhead caught by Keith McCartin fishing in New York on 12/07/11
28.0" / 8.0 lb. Steelhead caught by Keith McCartin fishing on Wednesday December 07, 2011 at 08:50 near Altmar in Oswego County, New York (NY), United States North America using a Lytle tied Blue back nymph

About 45 minutes on the Salmon River. 2nd fly of the day, river was running somewhere between 1500ccf and 1000ccf as they lowered it through the day. Warm for Altar, NY in Dec, about 35 degrees, low cloud cover, damp, no sun and NO net Man.

My bad depth perception made for an very cold left arm as I tried to tail her from what I thought was just below the surface, she ran then I tossed my rod to get a second hand. A good start to 2011-2012.

Now a steelhead is a rainbow trout that has been out to sea. How did this one get it's time at sea? Was it out through the St. Lawrence River?
