Virtual Trip - Upper Base Camp - Kanektok River with Dave Duncan and Sons - Alaska

Susan with a Chum Salmon. Some call them pretty, some call the ugly - I call them tough hard fighting machines. As they move up river, they take on their spawning colors. They develop large intimidating teeth that will help them protect their spawning beds. Their nickname "Dog Salmon" may come from these canine looking chompers. You certainly don't want to put your hand in it's mouth.

 


Sandy with a chum on his 6 weight.

Clint had to walk down the bank to land this Chum, as this guy wasn't coming up river.
Though trout were are main target, you can never be quite sure what you will latch into on the Kanektok River. Catching a powerful Chum Salmon on a 6 weight rod is no small feat. Actually getting it on was not the hard part, it was the landing that was the challenge. It becomes a real team effort with the guide and angler working together to land these beasts.
