    Steelhead: A Rainbow trout that has left fresh water and headed to the ocean for a few years and is not returning to fresh water to spawn, then head back to sea.

    Yes, she caught them herself and no, she is not holding them closer to the camera to make them look larger. The 'scar' on the one fish is, in fact, a scar from a close encounter with a seal or sea lion.
