              This fellow hit the nail on the head....

              I've got a tissue sample that will be submitted for DNA analysis.

                Why? The tissue sample should be submitted to the BBQ!!!!!!

                  Does it have an adipose fin?

                        I never posted the followup to the origins of this fish on this thread. Better late than never.

                        ....

                        OK... I have the answer to the mystery question....

                        I finally sent the DNA off for analysis on Monday (yeah, like 2 days ago) and I already have the answer! Friends in low places I guess?

                        Here's the response....


                        You were in luck we were running some in-season samples today so I got the genotype! I assigned it to the GAPs Chinook baseline and it had a high likelihood of assignment (99.9%) to Lower Kalum River on the Skeena, so it looks like Coastal Canada genetically.


                        My original thought about what river consistently produces 60, 70, 80-pound caliber chinook was one of three possible places. Kenai, Skeena, or Rivers Inlet. Fraser was thrown into the mix for its propensity to produce a lot of white kings. And we even had a bio in AK comment that he thought these were Fraser origin. But there's no real evidence to support the ability to produce GIANT white kings. Kenai was thrown out because it produces ZERO white kings and even its giant fish are NOT built like that. Rivers Inlet (Wannock River) was thrown out because John Beath (outdoor writer and former Rivers Inlet lodge operator) said their fish don't look like that.


                        So there you have it... we've come full circle... iron-clad proof it's a Skeena fish!


                        WOW.... mystery solved.

                            PLEASE don't take this as argumentative as I have no doubt a few people here will. I'm just curious where you get the information that the Kenai produces "zero" white kings. I'm not saying you're incorrect. Just curious. Is there scientific evidence of that? I'm just fascinated by the phenomenon of white kings and would like to know as much about them as possible.

                              I love it when a mystery is satisfactorily solved! Good job. Maybe you should be the dickNphysician! "Dick", as in detective (but somehow, it just doesn't sound right...)
