wow, thanks for the response, I have never eaten the browns or lakers so I dont have an opinion on those, I have eaten the coho and king and actually like both on the grill, I have found that if I keep ice and cooler handy and get them on ice after bleeding them they taste much better, seems if I come up late in summer or like first weeks of Sept. the flesh on the salmon is not as pink and some have been a little strong to taste. I have been told past years better eating before color change and have found that for most part to be true, not always but most of time. If the browns are good or better on the grill then will try them also.thanks again

Best tasting in order in my opinion

#1 Coho

#2 Rainbow

#3 Browns

#4 Kings

#5 Lakers

Brown are good smoked, baked, deep fried, or grilled.  Like any fish the bigger they get the more marginal they taste.  I bake/grill the medium to small ones.  Anything over 8lbs I smoke.

Lake trout are really the only ones that I would recommend keeping just to smoke regardless of size.  Kings I usually only smoke as well unless there on the small side.

are the browns good to eat ?, if so what are some of the best ways to prepare them, I live in Ohio and come up every other year and fish, I have kept kings and cohos but have been told to release the browns that they were only good for smoking ?. just wondered Im coming up again in August .

Was out 2 weekends ago. It was cold, but fish were hungry. Got 5 nice browns and lost one nice steelhead at the boat( Kids arms got tired) 

Their was no ice around. No docks in so you'll need two people to launch/ load. 

Im hoping to get out this weekend!!

Was wondering if it's possible to get the boat in or if anyone has been out in the boat out of port recently with a decent report.  Was thinking of giving er a go this weekend.  Any intel appreciated.  Pm me if you would like.  

Thank you
