Salmon Season is Here!

We really feel so fortunate that we live in this wonderful area. Surrounded by mountains, trails, lakes and rivers. With the main river a 5 minute drive from our home, when it’s salmon season, we try to get out there. Right now the pinks are running, they aren’t the greatest for fresh eating, but they are great for smoking and using in recipes!

Right now we have salmon that is cured and going in to the smoker, and salmon that is in the curing process. As well, salmon our for some salmon chowder tomorrow. Thank goodness for Pinterest is all I can say!

I had to chuckle this morning at 6 am, walking to the river with my purple salmon rod, with my husband, son in law and their friend. I was the only woman out there, and I know I got some looks with my ‘girly’ rod. Well don’t discount that my rod looks girly and I am a female! Who was heating it up out there, and getting some of the non-catchers (men) talking, yup ME!!!

Here are a couple of our pics from our early morning adventure! Stay tuned for pics and recipes to follow! If you have a salmon recipe you would like me to try, please feel free to share!!!
