Got a call from my brother today. He was at the French River and caught more than 30 pink salmon today. So the run is on so if you want action go for it. Now these pink salmon in my opinion are only good in a brine and smoked making sure they are fresh run. They start to die fast once they enter the steams and spawn so make sure they are a fresh run. good luck.

thanx RH....

Another thought Rein about cooking,when I lived in Alaska and colorado we would catch land locked silvers called Kokanee,like pinks they were mushy to pan fry or bake so we made patties,about the only way we could eat them,have you tried this? I suspect smoked they would be good as well but I perfer a more solid flesh smoked like steelhead or atlantic salmon,but thats me,even chinooks get mushy smoked but make darn good salmon jerky in long strips.

What did he use to catch them? I've only been on the shore once during the run, and remember talking to a guy that told me he was using small orange and yellow twister tails. Of course I forgot to ask him if he was casting them or floating them.

He was using spawn bags just like fishing for steelhead and loopers, drifted under a bobber. No I have not made patties out of them. I will try that using smoked pinks. thanks, good luck.

I'm wondering if the pinks are still in and how long they run? I'm coming up next weekend to fish the rivers. Are there any other salmon or trout that I should expect to be running? Any information would be great. Thank you.
