私は、関東の神奈川県育ちです。神奈川県の河川には、サケマスは溯上してきません。下流域ということもあって、河川改修済みで、川に直接下りることも難しい状況でした。また、見られる魚もコイやボラばかりでした。これらの魚もそこそこ大きくはなるのですが、迫力がありません。
I grew up in the vicinity of Tokyo of Japan. In the river of a thing of there, salmon and trout (Oncrhynchus spp.) do not go up. In the place where I lived, there was the downstream region in the river, too and the river repair, and going down to the river directly were a difficult situations. The fish which I could watch was only Carp (Cyprinus carpio) and Mullet (Mugil cephalus).These fish suffer greatly, too, but are not big so as to be impressive.

北海道に住んだ時、目の前の川を1m余のサケや、「せっぱり」のカラフトマスがぐんぐん溯上する姿には感動を覚えました。
I began to live in Hokkaido. And, I was impressed to see the appearance that Chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) one meter over and “Humpback” Pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) do the river in the presence after.

このSnakes logでも、「FISH」というカテゴリを作りましたが、陸のカメラしか持っていないと、なかなか写真も増やせないですね。水槽など駆使すれば、また面白そうな写真が撮れるのではないかと思っています。
I settled a category called “FISH” for this “Snake ‘s log”, but the photographs do not increase too much because I have only the camera that I use it on the land. If I devise water tanks and use it, I think that I may take the photograph which seems to be interesting.

それにしても、カラフトマスのオスの、成熟したピンク色は見事なものです。サケマスがピンピンと川をジャンプしながら進む姿も撮ってみたいですが、時期を少しはずしてしまったので、もうヨレヨレとした元気の無い魚しか残っていませんでした。それでも、大きな魚が目の前で何十と泳ぐ姿は圧巻です。
However, I think that a pink color mature of the male in Pink salmon is splendid also in such a photograph. I wanted to take the figure that a salmon and a trout jumped cheerfully in a river, but only a fish without spirit has already stayed because the time was late. Still, I am impressed by the figure which a big fish of dozens of swims in front of my eyes.
