The Pacific salmon is a different fish and is commonly looked on as a commercial food fish. There are a number of species but the Quinnat salmon is the most important and resembles the Atlantic salmon very much, though it is quite a bit larger, sometimes reaching a weight of 100 pounds, though the average weight is about twenty. With hook and line these fish are caught mainly in the sea, as the rivers are swift and as a rule the water discolored. They do not rise well to a fly, .though they can be taken in that way. The most of those' caught with hook and line are taken by trolling. They are also caught by baiting with salmon roe. Good salmon fishing may be had all along the northwest coast, and especially on Vancouver Island .and the salt water to the north.
