These are females ready to let loose of their eggs. They did, all over the boat.

The days catch for the wife and I.

We only caught 45 for the two day trip, which is 3 under limit. My wife likes to fill the deep freeze for the entire year.

We will be taking another trip to a different lake (Heron Lake near Chama) in about a month, it will be better as the weather will be colder and they will be spawning at a better rate.

No problemo Zack. I make it to the great SW every year or other year or so. Maybe I'll look you up on my next Texas trip.

Owl, don't make me post pics of anadromous silvers.....

edit to add, err what we call silvers on the coast are cohos, Zacks are landlocked sockeyes.
