Nice fish.  Those are fun on the fly when they start coming in.

Looks like a Silver to me, but what do I know about fishing :dunno:
Might be a blackmouth or jack

 I should have flipped it over, two distinct orange slashes on the throat.

 Thanks, tough to throw those back, but I knew I just had a short time to fish, no point in keeping one.

Again, not a fish expert, but sea-runs usually have spots throughout most of their whole body, and especially throughout all of their fins.  Their mouths tend to be white, with NO color.  Just because there are slashes doesn't mean its a cutthroat.  Still a fun catch.  Good job for throwing it back.

I would pay money if that was not a jack chinook from the salt.
 a little bit of money, like maybe a buck or 2 but i swear thats a 'nookey.
i don't see cutthroat at all. forked tail, black gumline, no bronze-ish cutt coloration, etc.

 I've caught probably four dozen Cutts at this particular lake, they all look like this one. The picture may have enough glare to distort a bit. If you look at the Lake Wa. Cutt in this link, it's very similar, tail, head, etc.. A chinook would have even larger spots yet and if it was on the return would have more of a kype to the jaw. I've seen returning salmon also caught in the lake and they are always fairly dark and mostly in the river-phase.

 Here's some other Cutt photo's for comparison, notice the tail, adipose and back specling, just as in my photo. You'll have to paste in your browser. The males also have many more spots than do the females, likely I caught a female.
