This thread is for you @Lucky Pete. As you say, summer is over. Not a lot of color yet in Hokkaido, at least not down low. Autumn is also salmon season so having been on the Shiretoko Peninsula in eastern Hokkaido for many years in autumn, and unable to fish due to work, Covid-19 has freed up my schedule. Caught my first ever salmon yesterday, and it was a beast. These are Chum salmon and Japan, surprisingly, is on of the world's biggest producers of commercial salmon. Runa River, full of spawning salmon, near Rausu, Shiretoko Peninsula. Fishing with a few of my close mates, mouth of Onnebetsu River, near Shari town. A beast of a salmon. Would have gone 8-10 kgs.
