Grilled BBQ Salmon Recipe

Garlic salt
Lemon juice
Lemon slices
1 untreated cedar or alder wood plank soaked in water

Spread mayonnaise generously over the salmon, then squeeze desired amount of lemon juice over the top. Sprinkle with spices to taste and top with sliced lemon pieces. Place salmon on plank that has been soaking in water for at least 30 minutes. Place on grill and cook over medium heat until salmon is done. About 20 to 30 minutes. To check for doneness, take a fork and lightly flake the thickest part of the fish. If it flakes easily and the meat has a consistent color all the way through, the fish is done.

Hook and Release

Basic Release Technique

1. Once hooked, keep a good tension on the line keeping a large bow in the rod. If the fish isn't moving try applying "side pressure" by dropping your rod to 45 degrees to the water. This often gets the fish moving.

2. Try to bring the fish in as quickly as possible. Over playing a fish will lessen the chance of survival.

3. Get the fish out of current to a slower area of water roughly 12 to 18 inches deep.

4. Use a dip net with soft scale friendly netting.

5. Place the net in the water avoiding quick or sudden movements. Try bringing the fish over the submerged net, lifting the handle once over the hoop.

6. Once in the net, keep the fish fully submerged in the water.

7. Remove the barbless hook from the fish quickly. Use hemostats if necessary. If the fly is down into the throat or gill area, simply clip the leader leaving the fly in the fish. This can help prevent bleeding.

8. Gently grasp the fish by the narrow section ahead of the tail, supporting its weight with the other hand under the belly area. If a photo is desired, have a friend get the camera ready to snap before lifting the fish out of water. Make sure it is only out of water for a couple of seconds or still partially submerged with water flowing through the gill area.

9. Once ready to release hold the fish head facing up river in the same manner as outlined in # 8. Let the water flow through the gills. This can sometimes take up to a few minutes. Once the fish is ready to go, it will kick its tail and be gone.
