        Thanks everyone, I appreciate it.

        If there was anything wrong with those chums, I didn't notice it. None that I ate were "beat up," as in tattered looking. I was really surprised that in that area salmon, at least the pinks and chums I saw, came into freshwater already turning color. I would bet that most of the salmon in my pictures had been in freshwater two days or less. Some of those pictured chums still had sea lice on them.

        Regardless, I was happy to eat those chums, I can tell you that for sure!

            the turning before they hit fresh water pretty typical for chums and pinks in southeast (when the salmon has to run a whole 1/2 mile upstream to get to their spawning grounds they turn early!) we normally don't eat the chums if they are colored at all ( of course when you have a freezer full of kings its easy to pass up on chums!)

            I've always thought it would be cool to live off the land like that I thinksoutheast is the place to do it! thanks for obeying fish and game laws!
