The greenish back on one of the fish pics may make it look like coho but it seems a bit small for a mature adult coho that should run 10 lbs or more. Coho identification signs are a dark grey mouth with white gums with faint spots only on top half of the tail and bright silver sides and thick anal fin. The top turns bluish/green in older adults. But it's extremely rarely find coho south of Monterey Bay.

Steelhead have fine spots on top of body, slender body profile, fine anal fin with just 8 - 12 soft rays and light coloured mouth. And if this is SoCal, there are steelhead which still run in Santa Maria, Santa Ynez, Ventura and Santa Clara rivers I think. Not many though, so this would be an incredible haul - 3 in one day on a crankbait/plug!

Fine catches from shore!

Good work G... I was gonna say steelies breaking out from one of them there rivers down south... but not being the silverside expert like you... which in this case, they released a delicious dinner. Detaining Coho like that would have been a big no no...being an endangered species for a few years now....

Cool , Silver salmon are on the endangered list , think maybe Fish & Game should do their census / counts in southern CA also . Nice looking fish , very unusual that far south !
