Chinook or King Salmon
August 4, 2015
Chinook Salmon caught in Lake Michigan August 2015. Brooks Wheeler holds up his big catch. Chinook salmon, also called king salmon were planted in the Great Lakes. They run up streams to spawn and then go back into the Pacific Ocean, but in this case, to Lake Michigan since they are not native to the Great Lakes.
Read more about Pacific salmon in my book, the Dynamic Great Lakes widely available on the www and in bookstores.
