Aaron’s First Salmon

My fishin’ buddy Aaron with his first ever river caught salmon. She was a mint bright 20 pound hen caught in late October, 1997 at the mouth of Salt Creek on the Sacramento River below Red Bluff California.

Note: The lure still hanging from the fish’s mouth was an old T-55 flatfish with rusty hooks that Aaron found floating down the river an hour or so earlier. Some guys are just jerks!
