Yeah, all the fish we saw in the canyon were dark, unfortunately, as it was the tail of the king run. I hooked it on a 6" fuscia bunny leech, hooked about 8 or 9 of them but that's the only one I managed to land. Not the prettiest fish, but my first king in freshwater, gave me a hell of a run for my money on a 9 weight XP, excellent acrobatics. Owens estimated it at about 22 pounds. If it would have been chrome, I would have been in serious trouble.
