Dean River Chinook Salmon are pretty awesome critters.
At BC West we catch them mostly in the bottom mile and a half of river, so they’re hot and bright, and just like their steelhead cousins, they’re as powerful as they come. We hook quite a few of them and we land lots of smaller ones, but everything has to go right to land the big boys (and girls).
Brian Niska pulled it off last week. Great fish, Brian.
