I had seen this steelhead a number of times over about a one and a half year period over the summer of 2014 until late 2015 when heavy rains began. Finally it disappeared from this small pool on El Corte Madera Creek. Prior to the heavy rain the pool had gotten so small it was apparent the trout had little time to survive without rain. Hopefully it made its return to the sea successfully. While I and other had spotted it a number of times it was very elusive. The photo here is barely recognizable to anyone but me but it is there. I also spotted a steelhead in another location further upstream in the summer of 2015
