Default Re: Kokanee Salmon on the Gunnison/East river

The fish are landlocked sockeye and will get red as they ripen. For landlocked those are nice fish!

As for the use of a five weight, it can be done and you can kill deer with a .22 rifle but I would recommend a #7 for fish like that. If they are stacked in the river why not get them in quick and catch a bunch? Light lines and light rods are hard on the fish and take up way too much time. If you are harvesting the fish how do they taste?
