King Salmon Record

  • Weight: 6.2 pounds
  • Fisherman: Harry Stoner of Stockton, CA
  • Lure: Kastmaster
  • Location: Cowboy Cove
  • Date: February 28, 2010
Harry Stoner of Stockton broke the nearly three-year-old salmon record by .2 pounds with this 6.2 pound catch on February 28, 2010. He was fishing in Sunken Oak Cove (now known as Cowboy Cove) with a Kastmaster. There were two other large salmon caught on the same day.

King salmon have been stocked only four times at Los Vaqueros. The Department of Fish and Game planted fingerlings at Los Vaqueros in 2004, 2005 , 2007 and 2009.

Salmon don't breed at Los Vaqueros. Unless salmon are stocked again, it's unlikely we'll see this record broken.
