Brown or Landlocked salmon?
« on: Mar 16, 2018, 11:21 AM »
So, here`s for the context.

The following was caught in the Gatineau river, here in western Quebec, about an hour north of Ottawa, Canada.

I didn't catch it, but saw this posted on a local facebook page. It is claimed that landlocked salmon were stocked in a reservoir several hundred KM`s away, and at one time in the river itself. From the Reservoir to the location near where the fish was caught, there are 2 hydro electric dams to cross. It is also claimed and verified by several sources that the Gatineau river was also stocked with brown trout, that no one has specifically targeted, or caught.

Just looking for a little ID info. Everyone claims it`s a landlocked salmon, but I`m leaning towards the Brown Trout side. It has similar colour to a great lakes brown, and body structure.

What say you men and women of the shanty, BROWN OR SALMON???

Landlocked Salmon. Upper maxillary doesn't extend past the eye and I don't see any spots on the adipose fin, both characteristics that make it a salmon. You can throw coloration out the window most times as they both can have similar coloration.

I am pretty sure That's a LLS.
....A beauty too!
I'd rather bring it and not need it, than need it and not bring it

That looks like a landlocked salmon to me.

Only way to tell for sure is the vomerine teeth. If there are two rows itís a brown, one row equals a salmon.
