McKenzie River Salmon Continue to Provide Good Sport
Spring Chinook are Challenging for Sure
(Yet Well Worth the Effort)
Garry, my guest last Wednesday, was quite happy to hook into several challenging McKenzie River Salmon during our 5 mile long drift. Though the first fish that was hooked on a diver and bait set-up, unfortunately shook the hook, the next 2 fish hooked were not quite so fortunate. Not one to just throw in the towel, Garry got right back in the saddle and found several deep holes and back-bounced his way into 2 more Springers, perhaps destined for a 4th of July barbecue. Spring Chinook Salmon is regarded as one of the finest tasting salmon due to the very rich nature of the meat. It’s hard to beat a fresh barbecued Springer! A moist yet slightly charred piece of succulent Teriyaki glazed Spring Chinook is an absolute mouth-watering treat ……. an epicurean delight indeed.
