Injured/Deformed fish

I wanted to wait until I got the film back to post this so now that I have the picture I will go ahead.
I have caught quite a few cohos with deformed mouths, probably from rough releases or trawlers but never an atlantic. The picture isnt very good but you can see that she was missing most of her snout. Any ideas for what might have caused this? It was all healed and didnt seem to have caused any other damage, although maybe she wasnt in the right river... who knows.
