My best guess an atlantic, but something is quite not right...

Could also be a small chinook, but the tail looks off.

Maybe a pink salmon??

No spots on tail is an atlantic trait,but spots on back are closer to being round than x markings, all other salmon have spots on the tail

Gawd knows I'm no expert. However, one thing my long life has taught me is that in difficult decisions, it is usually a bad idea to use a single discriminator. Based on the balance of the available evidence, put me on the Atlantic list. I've only ever caught one and seen one other but that's what it looks like to me.

Atlantic 100%.

No spots on the tail. Atlantic’s have their mouth equal to the middle or back edge of their eye. This one has the mouth equal to the back edge of its eye. The spots are not located below the lateral line.

This is just an awesome example of an Atlantic and what an awesome fish it is.

Well done.
