Kokanee Salmon

Kokanee are the land-locked form of sockeye salmon.  Other than their size, they resemble the sockeye salmon very closely.  Kokanee salmon are the smallest of all salmon.  They are slim with a bluish-green back.  They do have some black spots on their back, but none on the tail.  They typically live for 4 years.  Most fish are caught in the 2 to 3 pound range with a world record just over 9 pounds.
