The Chum Salmon is as close as you can get to a roughfish, while still being a salmon. Although despised by the white man for its bland taste, the native Inuit prefer the chum for smoking and drying, since it has little to no fat and thus can be preserved for long periods without spoilage. These are very hard fighters and will savagely strike at artificials. This is the second largest of all the Pacific Salmon; only the Chinook or King Salmon grows larger.
