A coho fillet, fresh from Alaska's Egegik River.. JR Sullivan

The Super Fresh Shore Lunch by FieldandStream

A shore lunch doesn’t get much fresher than this.

After a morning of nonstop fishing, it’s always nice to unwind with a good meal. But sometimes the bite is so hot that you just want to get back on the water. That was the case last week, on Alaska’s Egegik River, where a few buddies and I were targeting coho. It’s safe to say I’ve never had fresher salmon.
