      Nice photo, but I think it is a trout or salmon.

      Thank you both.

      Really? (on this not being a northern pike)

      All I have to go by is the sign that was conveniently located about a yard away from where I took this photograph. Both trout and salmon are in that river--but this looked more like a northern pike to me.

      I'll have to see what other people say about this.....any fisherpeople out there?

      Check out the Rainbow Trout on this website and compare it with your photo. Notice the black spots on the top and the very small fin on its back near its tail. Then compare it to the Northern Pike. website.http://www.state.me.us/ifw/fishing/fishidentification/index.htm

      What a great shot! It's as if the fish was just waiting for you to take its picture! Lovely clear water, too!
      You got lucky... Great capture!

      (Not a fish person, but it is spotted like a trout; we can't really see the pink "rainbow" stripe too well, which would be closer to its tummy...)

      thank you pesotum, smoe, chamante, and loveberries for the comments and with id'ing the fish.

      ....I'm still not sure. I have a professional fisherman in the family--married to my niece. When I can, I'm going to show this to him for identification. In the meantime, calling it a ....fish. :)
