Yep.   Cohos are called silvers due to body color.  Technically they have black mouths with white gums but they usually look more light gray gums with black mouth to me.  Kings have very dark gums.  Trout will have white gums and mouth although it's easy to tell steelhead and lakers from salmon.   18lbs would be a pretty large coho.  Nice king but not huge.  Still a great fight though, especially now. 
Thanks for the info...yea the fight was awesome

Ya that's a king for sure! Coho's put up a better fight in my opinion. Both taste good when they're chrome like that.

Nice king.  We are hoping to get out of Olcott or Wilson on this Saturday afternoon (as long as the big waves and thunder holds off).  If it is too windy out on the lake (or hopefully if our arms get sore from reeling in all the big kings), I hope to bring back a bucket full of bluegills and a largemouth or two from in the harbor in order to re-stock our pond that I re-excavated last fall after it dried up in the drought.  Is the lake level back down a bit now ?  .

Based on our dock, it's still close to 3 feet high.   Dropping but very slowly.

That's interesting.  I hope Olcott and Wilson will be open for launching.  My brother said that the St Lawrence was down about 1.5 feet last weekend, from it's peak earlier this year, at his place up on the St Lawrence.  They are just down-river of Alex bay.

This may help a little. I heard hatches have been early evening lately around WNY. We've been out mornings , early afternoon and have barely seen any hatches.
Are fish you're after fished a lot ? Maybe need to sneak up on em a bit. I'm terrible at fly fishing so take my advice lightly lol

Tricos are your best bet right now. Also beetles and ants.

My nephew is back in town, we fished a couple local ponds last night and this morning. We probably caught 20 largemouth and three smallmouth. No hogs but we had a blast 40f7a81e6485ac1d71d75379107de32b.jpg

We fished from 2-4 this afternoon.  One of those days where it seemed everything went wrong.  Swivel on downrigger pulley snapped, another rigger stopped working (still can't figure out why) and wire dipsy line broke costing us a spin doctor and fly.  But, the kids both landed one and it was Natalie's first all on her own.  Thank goodness because she lost one too and she was upset. But she felt a bit better when we netted this one.  Not enough time to run deep so we pretty much focused on lakers.  Now to figure out why the rigger won't run and find the right replacement swivel.

Lakers that size  ^ are pretty tastey, cut into steaks and grilled over tinfoil and fresh off the cob sweetcorn.   Much better than chicken and almost as good as ruffed grouse.

Not much of a fish eater.  They live to fight another day.   Both were pretty spunky when released.

We don't really fish for Northern. I know they are caught in Irondequoit bay on occasion.

A lot of our lakes up here the fine fishing has been destroyed but them being introduced. Everyone we catch we keep because their predators and will eat anything. Were you fishing Lake Ontario Ive been wanting to fish there for salmon and lakers. Had a buddy who lived in Oswego but moved to Constantia.
