We have fished the Kenai many times,the river is so thick with them they'll swim between your waders. Sockeyes don't feed during their final run prior to spawning and death. The fish was most likely "snagged" with the fly as the line passed through its open mouth.Just for fun we would catch and release with a bare hook. They turn red from silver as they travel from salt water through the fresh water rivers and streams. Their flesh gets softer as they turn more red and literally falls off. The bears, rainbows and sea gulls love them!Fun to catch on a light fly out fit.

Congrats on the catch anyway!!

I was wondering myself ;)

When salmon look like this, the only way to catch them is by snagging them and they're to rotten to eat. If he would have caught it sooner, the Length would have been shorter. Got to do better than this!

I always went down to Chitina on the Copper River or swoop down south to the port of Valdez across from town.

I was just at the Kenia at the end of July. It was so much fun. One of the salmon I caught was on a 6 weight fly rod. But the one I got was all silver. I have to say I'm a little jelous. Congrads!!!

Mak, when they are deformed like this, there's not much of a fight and the meat tastes rotten
