Salmon in Lake Michigan

September 6, 2015


Brooks' big catch

Pacific Salmon

Right now Pacific salmon are being caught in Lake Michigan.  These anadromous fish, fish that run upstream to spawn and then return to large bodies of water, are not native to the Great Lakes fresh water.  They were planted to the delight of people who like to fish.  King or Chinook salmon and coho salmon are being caught this time of year.

For more information about fishing and the Great Lakes, read The Dynamic Great Lakes  I’s a handy book to take with you on your boat or to read and learn about the ever changing Great Lakes freshwater system.
