    Looks like a humpy / silver hybrid. Notice the mouth and hump but it's oddly to silver

    A really scrawny chum.

    The tail looks chum-like, no spots, what appears to be black gumline. I'm sticking with chum.

    I agree. Small chum.

    No question. Male pink salmon. When they first show up in the ocean, that's how silver they are.

    Hard to see if those are spots on the tail (bottom half). Also I think I see the tell tale vertical bars (albeit faint) that say it is a chum. Then again, could be the shadows from the grass.

    Ill say chum, officially

    I'd say that'd be a dog.

    Noticeable fork to the tail, faint vertical bars on the sides, and a very large pupil makes me think that it is a chum and a scrawny one at that.

    A skinny, chrome red. The vertical stripes apear to be shadows from the grass clump between the fish and the sun! Not dog stripes!

    Aft of the shadows from the grass are faint vertical bars. I'm assuming that's what folks are talking about.
