Straying Sockeye Salmon

A couple of days ago while on a walk up Indian River trail, I noticed a red salmon in Indian River. I was not completely sure at the time, but it sure looked like a sockeye salmon, presumably one that strayed from a nearby system (the nearest is at Salmon Lake probably 10-15 miles away). Yesterday I was able to get back and take some video of the fish in the water by setting up my GoPro anchored to the bottom where the fish seemed to prefer hanging out. Most of the fish in the video are pink salmon, but there are also some dolly varden (the smaller fish).
