Our group of Ontario salmon/steelheaders had an amazing time fishing BC tributaries from Kitimat Lodge, BC. Our featured image is of Claudiu Albeanu with one of his many colorful “water-marked” Chum Salmon.
Tracey Hittel (top left) and angler Joe Kubassek who was part of our group (top right) show-off a prime male Chum in it’s spawning colors that gave Joe a real fight!
While many anglers think that once Pacific Salmon get dark and into their spawning colors they loose their fighting qualities I would disagree. On our trip I hooked Chums that jumped up to 15-times out of the water making long runs up and down the river and eventually throwing my hook!
