Re: Kokanee Salmon on the Gunnison/East river
Man - those are big Kokanees! The Montana variety are in the 12-16" range but unfortunately do not reside in the streams anymore. The invasive Lakers have all but wiped them out in Flathead Lake, lots of guys pull them through the ice at Georgetown Lake but I've never done it. If there was a river population nearby I'd be all over that. Great catch! Congrats.
