    Take a Last Look

    Ycryndashots_013_2 Rare to see YC holding a fish out of water for even a second but this 26 pound Zolotaya River chromer required closer inspection. This Russian beauty had been caught on the nearby Rynda two summers ago and blue-tagged to identify it as a product of Rynda waters -- proof of salmo salar's wandering capabilities, and what happens to salmon when allowed to swim freely and spawn repeatedly without estuary nets or pen farming. Maybe the Canadian government will take the hint before the entire Skeena drainage is lost for steelhead and the eastern province rivers no longer hold Atlantics.
