Went out trying to catch winter steelhead , hooked into this guy on #4 bluefox . Not really sure whether it's a Chinook or chum . Anyways atleast I didn't get skunked.

That’s a nice bright December chinook! Chum have no spots on the back or tail or very small ones. It would also be very uncommon for a buck chum to be in fresh water without some sort of coloration. They mature very quickly, sometimes before entering fresh water.
