Something to Smile About!

Tina Gardener from Oceanside California caught this 65 pound Kenai River king salmon just two hours after hitting the water on July 15th. Big Eddy was the location where this trophy fish was taken. This year, 2003, saw a fairly respectable number of bigger fish in the harvest. The Department of Fish and Game sealed FIVE kings in July that were 55 inches or longer in length. Fish of that size are in the 80 pound and up range. Many years have passed since that many trophies were landed so we hope that maybe this is the beginning of another cycle producing some genuine wall-hangers for lucky anglers.
