To those looking for information,
You may be enlightened by performing a further reasearch into the biology and genteics of particluar species, while i am in agreeance with most of of the previous post's you will find that Sivler Salmon will activly feed once in a freshwater environment and after quite a lengthy amount of time spent in the that habitat, Silver Salmon will digest food in freshwater.  You will also find that some species such as reds are very aggressive feeders in the marine environment (primarily upon bait fish unlike the misconception that they only are eating zooplankton) in the ocean it just so happens that reds digestive tracts start to close up...deteriate...whatever one would like to refer to it as much faster and much further out in the ocean than do the other species.
One will also find that the Silver Salmon posted on the news last night is not all that rare...it is the only species that infact will or has entered upper cook inlet waters (especially the Kenai) all 11 months except for June.
Please do not take my word for it but i urge everyone to take a look at the Kenai watershed organization and ask one of the leading ecologists in the country if indeed this is true, or even your local fish biologist and you may just surprise yourself with the wealth of information these people will have for you, and how willing they are to share.
Oh and even though i could count on one hand the amount of times a year i catch a red on K16's or bait, it does happen, if it just happned to me once i might argue that i was extremely lucky and slipped it in the reds mouth as he was moving up stream, but when it happens to me every year i submit that they will strike, but i also submit that i am not going to stand on the bank for a month straight to catch just 3 or 4 agressively striking bright chrome reds.
