none of my chums have look like those,
You need to invest in Photoshop program... you can fix anything, even ratty salmon
Seriously, the majority of chum I catch are butt-ugly. That one was certainly not the norm.
They are called dog salmon for a reason
Yeah, chums suck. They are ugly, they stink, they don't taste very good, and they fight like a piece of driftwood. No reason for anyone to go fish for them. May as well just stay home.
Went to the nushagak river this year. Swung flies to a bazzilion chums. All chrome bright. It was hard to tell if they were Sokeye. You had to hold them in the light just right to tell for sure. The meet looked like a springer
I've had chrome chum a time or two on the grill. Nothing wrong with it whatsoever. I quite liked it, in fact. Just hard to come across in WA.
So true. I have never kept one in WA. Although I herd the nisqually run kicks out some chromers
This is the freshest I've caught myself. It got to live.
Solid chum for sure
Looks like a w river chum from that top secret stretch on an s river
