Unfortunately my report is based solely on observation. I've had to work going on 16 days straight, so I haven't had a chance to do much else. However, I decided to on a walk down by Chicago's lake front this morning with my better half before heading into work once again. I observed the following:
1. A man holding a spinning rod in one hand and a clear plastic bag containing a steelhead in the other (probably a stocker but I don't love it);
2. a gentlemen who claims (I believe him) to have a caught a large king last week; and
3. a young boy with his dad holding a 5-6 pound Coho (or small king I didn't get the best look at it).
Seems to me like the fish are close.
