30-inch Coho Salmon
Coho salmon, silver salmon, is a highly sought-after game fish found in the Pacific Ocean and its tributaries. These fish are known for their silver-colored bodies, aggressive feeding behavior, and strong runs when hooked. Coho salmon feed on a variety of prey, including small fish, squid, and crustaceans, and can grow up to 30 inches in length. They are typically found in areas with fast-moving water and plenty of covers, 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 afterward. Anglers prize coho salmon for their challenging behavior, and acrobatic leaps out of the water when hooked, making them a popular target for sport fishing. 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, strong runs, and aggressive behavior, coho salmon provide anglers an exciting and memorable fishing experience.
