Pictures are really fuzzy, hard to tell.

Looks like a salmon to me , not enough spots for a brown
Fishing isn't a hobby it's an addiction

if the head or tail or both had been clear in the pictures, it would have been easy.

Did you Tail it ? It's kinda hard to tell but if it was as you described " bow and brown like " I'd lean toward it being an Atlantic. It does look to me like it has a bit of a butter belly going which says brown to me.

Although the spots look more like Atlantic than not- the coloring of the belly & fin definately look more Brown. Did it fight much different?

fuzzy pictures but I would say brown as they can get really lite but I could very well be wrong as the pics are pretty fuzzy

That shure looks like an Atlantic Salmon to me, Did the bottom jaw have upward curve? 30 years of trib fishing during spring and fall never  seen  a spring brown with coloring like that

no idea what it was some say salmon some say brown? i usually only practice cpr( except for a couple steelies for eggs)  so this fish is probably back in the lake by now for someone else to catch

Looks like a Lake Ontario brown that just came in the trib.   The yellow belly and the shape of the spots look more like a brown to me... better pixs would make easier to tell.....   Most of the guys I know that egg fish would rather have brown eggs......Please let the steelies go....  their numbers are dwindling
