This 37 lb specimen was caught in the jaws of the Nehalem River where it meets the sea. It was a native salmon, meaning it was born of a wild mother and father on natural spawning grounds. These fish carry the future of salmon as a species in their DNA as they are heartier and typically have higher rates of return than hatchery fish. Hatcheries also depend on taking wild native eggs and sperm to maintain the genetic resilience of their program and without them would experience genetic decline.
