Please Note: This special run is expected to ship in May (Week of either May 9, 16, or 23rd). We're waiting to hear from the tribes when they expect the fish to be caught and we'll update you with a firm ship date as we get closer to the event.
This special run from Baker River, Washington is a true family fishing event, and is overseen locally by Tribal Fish & Game. The Native Fishing Families from tribes in the Upper Skagit Valley are on the river beaches or in their skiffs, waiting for their turn to fish the event. There are 2-4 people per skiff, and skiffs are known to include the whole family—from Elders to grandchildren. Ashore, a Tribe Member has a bullhorn and another has a stop watch. When they give the "go", each skiff has exactly 7 minutes to fish. The fish are caught via short net, gills are immediately cut, and placed into totes of slush ice to ensure the fish is kept cold and in perfect condition. These wild salmon have a high fat content, clean flavor, and beautiful coloring. And, it's one of the most sustainable fishing methods, with non-targeted species being released. We are thrilled to bring this local-to-the-Smokehouse event to our Fresh & Wild Summer of 2022.
About Wild King Salmon
Moist and mild, the largest wild salmon of all, Native Americans nicknamed it "tyee" meaning "chief” - a fitting tribute to the size, beauty and nobility of the King salmon. King is the largest and moistest of all wild salmon. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and full of flavor, the Fresh King Salmon is a true culinary experience, and we're proud to present it to you as part of our Fresh & Wild Summer.

You will also receive information about the niche fishery that provided your fish.
***Please note, due to these fish being so fresh and tender, removing all bones is not possible, so fillets will likely contain bones.
