I was on LO for the second time and it was quite successful. I got three fish out of 6 pop ups and I am happy with that.
I finally got fish in the freezer, some experience and little more confidence now. I appreciate the advises I was given here, some technical stuff and suggestion that I better go to LO than GB for now. It really paid out. Thanks a lot to those from the forum who took some time to advise me.
Here is what I got. I'm not good in identification, but I believe on the bottom is a rainbow, on the top is a chinook, but what is in between?
Thank you!

Also, do rainbow fight harder than chinooks? I lost one fish after furious fight and this rainbow I hardly brought into the boat. While the salmon's fight even comparable in the size was relatively easy.

Looks like a coho salmon on the top and possibly in the center as well, wait till you get a chinook over 15 lbs, thats when the fight really gets good

congrats, the bottom one is a rainbow. the two other are coho. look at the mouth next time.

rainbow= with gum and white tongue.
coho= white and black gum with black tongue.
Chinook= black gum/mouth with black tongue.

other things like spots on the tail help identifying them.

anyhow congrats and I can tell you are getting hook on our great fishery from lake O.

as for the fight, I found that rainbow fight more on the surface/jump. The salmon want to keep deep and a lot more runs.

Thank you, Steph!
I now read about it and hopefully next time will know my catch.
Yes, LO fishing is superb. I only wish that GB fishing would be at least half or even third productive as LO.
