First Coho salmon caught in Lake Michigan

Three quarters of a million small Coho salmon were stocked in the tributaries of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. By 1967 people began catching Coho with rods and reels. Read how and why Pacific salmon were planted in the Great Lakes in my book, The Dynamic Great Lakes.
The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon’s Kindle.  Also at Barnes and Noble and many independent bookstores such as the Bookman and Hostetters in Grand Haven, MI
This photo was published in Newsweek Magazine at the time Pam, age 10, was cut out of the photo.  Her teacher called her the Coho queen.
