Looks just like a catfish I caught years ago in a rare lake in west Texas years ago.  gc

Used to pull 10's of those babies out of the Yukon River when I lived in N. of Whitehorse.

Mepps # 5 or a small spinner are your best bets.

The wife still has her fur fish boots.

Thank you for posting this , it brings back many great memories.

I'll bet those are fun to catch on a fly rod when the salmon aren't running. Plus they look about the perfect size to make a nice pair of socks or gloves out of one.

You will have to take it to a Hudson's Bay Post on the Canadian side or la icensed furrier on the US side , if it is untanned ; expect - 40 .

Be sure your trapping license up to date at point of sale.
