How to Release a Wild Atlantic Salmon

Here’s a great lesson on how to land, revive, and release large fish. It was created by the Atlantic Salmon Federation and its partners in the Quebec government, so it’s focused on Salmo salar. But you can easily see how these techniques apply to steelhead, Pacific salmon, and even larger trout. Even better, the video features some killer shots, including a fish gobbling a bushy Bomber off the surface.

One thought on “How to Release a Wild Atlantic Salmon”

  1. Atlantic Salmon populations are way down here in New Brunswick but i was fortunate enough to hook a couple in the miramichi this summer. Unbelievable fight in them.. hopefully conservation efforts pay off, it’d be a shame to lose this fish in our river systems. Returns in rivers leading into the Bay of Fundy are just a fraction of what they once were. If the conservation levels were as high in Greenland, iceland etc as they are here in North America, i think the species would stand a good chance at a comeback.
