I’ve never fished it but I think I’m gonna check it out Saturday and will report back.
Well not much to talk about yet. Water seems low and never saw a fish down there. I did find another access spot which I’ll head to next time. Yates cider mill was insane!!!! Whenever that shuts down I’ll go back lol
Caught this hen out of the clinton today. Pretty sure it's a chinook. Adipose fin was clipped. I believe canada stocks kings in huron still.
Yes king, several reports of them last couple weeks
Nice i was at lexington all day floating skein and throwing everything and only had 2 bites pry should have tried clinton
Pretty sure your right about clip being Canadian. Found one dead two years ago below Yates. Clipped also
Sarnia Blue Water anglers stocks them. Couple also caught in Lexington harbor in last 3 weeks. Fluke catches, not a fishery one can target. I caught an 8 lb King trolling out of Sanilac in June...not a common catch
I believe that these plants are not clipped. At least that's what I've been told. My buddy caught a clipped king in Lexington a couple years ago and turned the head in. It was planted in northern lake Huron, Swan river.
could be either. It your right about swan.
Was very surprised to see a fin clipped. Surprised to find the salmon in general. Based on what I've read Ontario gets a lot of wild kings in lake huron. Plus a bit of stocking of course. They don't get nearly as big as lake Michigan kings but they still push 20 and sometimes bigger. (Based on some pictures and articles.) Does the MI DNR clip the fins on kings?
All US chinook plants in lakes Michigan and Huron are clipped.
I was in Alpena a couple weeks ago, and saw quite a few Kings jumping, and rolling below 9th St dam. I also saw some really large hens spawning, watching off the bridge. Probably 20# fish, before their tails turned white. It was good to see Kings there, again. I talked to a local guy I used to know, and he said a handful of Cohos had been caught to-date, and there were some Atlantics around. But not large numbers of either. This is the year the planted Cohos should be returning in force. Perhaps the run is happening now, or yet to come. It would be sad if there wasn't a noticeable return from the plant they made a couple years ago.
The water was super-high, compared to what we got used to after 2000. I considered taking my motorized river boat up there, to fish the dead water in front of the flood gates. But it was a long drive from our cabin, and I wasn't really interested in fighting Boot Kings. Where we used to wade up, is probably at least 5 feet deep, right now. The high water should be fantastic for spring Walleye spawning, and hatching.
Checked the fin on my Sanilac King...not clipped- wild or Ontario stocked
thanks...btw, checked my of the Sanilac King...not clippe
Pretty cool to still have kings around. Some is better than none in southeast Michigan!
