    Default Pic - Upper Yukon Tributary King Salmon

    As many know, the chinook runs are down and subsistence fishing has been curtailed along the Yukon River.

    So it was great to catch one of the largest kings we've ever caught here, fifty miles up a tributary of the upper-Yukon. 42" long, didn't have scale but is forty pounds or so and just in fantastic shape after swimming 1200 miles! Very mild tasting king too.

    Hoping plenty more go by and our grandkids get to see fish like this in future.

    Congrats. Nice fish. Glad to see some fish getting back. If there's one, there's more.

    Nice fish, hopefully the stock will recover. Ive been reading a good deal about species interaction in the gulf of Alaska and the Bering. There is a great deal of research being done and hopefully solutions will be had to improve these fisheries (a stock collapse would suck).
