Not sure what kind of Trout this is. I watched this Pickerel Frog struggle for a while and eventually get freed after fending off another darker colored trout. The frog ended up making it to freedom at the cost of its two front arms.
Here's one of the first Chum Salmon I've seen this fall swimming up Chimacum Creek to spawn. It was about 3' long, and swimming near a few dozen others in a few inches of water. They are amazing to watch as they splash their tails and progress a few feet, then rest in a shallow pool and seem to get another burst of energy to continue onward.
Bones from salmon carcass found along south fork Eel River.
Two steelhead with wounds from sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus).
Very colorful, don't usually get bigger than 12 inches or live longer than 3 years.
