Once you are dialed in on the techniques and get the feel for fishing for sockeye salmon they can be easy to catch. These fish are hard fight, very acrobatic and can flat out destroy gear.

Chrome bright sockeye salmon are best for taking home. If you catch a fish that has been in the river to long I will recommend that you release it and try to catch a fresher fish.
