How very "awed"...


One of the silver salmon I caught at a pristine
city lake not claiming to EVER be stocked with salmon:


This one has obviously had some time in the ocean
to achieve this size and it's markings, or it would
beat any Kokanee size record - hands down.
How many coho salmon are in this land locked lake?
How did they get there? The lake is miles from shore
and has no obvious connection(s) to other streams
that have been known to support a coho run.

Sure, this rainbow trout is only 12 inches, but there
are bigger trout in this lake. This one was caught from
the same place as the cohos and many other trout -
including a 16" rainbow (no camera on hand).
This discovery leaves me in awe of how prolific
a breed the Coho salmon specie really is.

Could be the underwater stream!! Good call!
I believe the cherries were poisoned. The sooner you can get me another large sample, the sooner we can test the integrity of the product.

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
