I imagine an error occurred somewhere.

"A salmon was caught by one of the fishermen at Bay Point, last Monday, that weighed 187 pounds. It was taken to Concord by Mr. Black, and was the object of general wonder and admiration. If a salmon of larger proportions has been caught anywhere on the coast this season we would like to hear from it. Contra Costa Gazette.
óLos Angeles Times, July 21, 1882

I agree, not a salmon. The biggest one was caught in a trap in 1949:126#. Here is a link with a picture plus other big salmon. Big props to those who released their fish for the sake of the future. Rare breed these days, to be sure.

Still a nice weight for a sturgeon.
