HOW TO ENTER/HELP
When you catch a Chinook salmon follow the instructions below:
1. Check to see if the adipose fin is missing, if missing,
2. Remove the salmon’s head and put it in a plastic bag.
3. Use a pencil to write catch information on a label and attach to the bag. Include the following information: date, place of capture, gear type and, if possible, the sex and length of the salmon.
4. Freeze the head as soon as possible.
5. Submit the head by contacting Shayla Lawrence for further instructions.
Note: Any heads that are not properly bagged and labelled will not be accepted, as this provides information to a specific fish. Heads that are starting to deteriorate or starting to smell will not be accepted as well.
