No fish story here, and he has the photos to prove it

Angler John Cerrato displayed a large steelhead he caught while fly fishing in the Sauk Creek Nature Preserve in the Town of Port Washington Sunday. Then, with his cell phone carefully perched on the shore, he made a video of his catch. Steelhead and rainbow trout are essentially the same species, but their behavior differentiates them. Unlike rainbow trout, Lake Michigan steelhead return to tributaries to spawn, and of the three strains of the fish stocked in Wisconsin, two spawn in March and April. Sauk Creek is apparently a particularly attractive spawning ground, which makes the tributary a destination for fishermen throughout the state and beyond every spring.
