It's definitely an interesting video, but personally I think it's a sturgeon.
Sturgeons have whiskers above the mouth, and after re-watching the video it appears that what I first thought was the mouth is probably a massive
facial scar (I've caught salmon out of rivers before and I've seen some mean rips/scars). The white lining of the underside which goes up to around
the nose area that is on sturgeon also appears on this fish.
Of course sturgeon tend to be bonier too, but this guy already looks like an exception to the stereotypical stugeon look. Because of the whiskers,
it's pretty much a decision between a sturgeon, catfish or something new (yet unlikely).
He looks like he would put up a good fight though
