27-inch Coho Salmon
Coho salmon, also known as silver salmon, are a prized game fish found in the Pacific Ocean and its tributaries. These fish are known for their silver coloration and their aggressive feeding behavior, making them a popular target for anglers. Coho salmon feed on a variety of prey, including small fish, squid, and crustaceans, and are typically found in areas with fast-moving water and plenty of cover, such as near submerged logs or rocky outcroppings. Coho salmon typically spend the first part of their lives in freshwater streams, where they feed on insects and other small aquatic organisms, before migrating to the ocean to mature. They will typically return to their natal streams to spawn in the fall, with females digging nests in the gravelly bottom of the stream and laying their eggs, and males fertilizing them afterwards. Coho salmon are a challenging species to catch, as they are known for their strong runs and acrobatic leaps out of the water when hooked. To catch coho salmon, try using a variety of bait and lures, including flies, spinners, and spoons, and focus on areas with good cover and a steady supply of food. With their unique coloration and aggressive behavior, coho salmon provide an exciting and rewarding fishing experience for anglers of all skill levels.
