Fishing on the Great Lakes

Anadramous fish such as coho salmon and king salmon are now starting to run from the Great Lakes and then up the same streams where they were hatched.  This knowledge lies embedded in their bodies along the lateral line that runs up their sides.  They will find the place then the females will deposit their eggs on the streambed and males will follow and deposit their sticky milt on the eggs.

Sports fishers fish from piers or boats hoping to catch a salmon or even a steelhead.
