  1. Due to poor Chinook Salmon Returns in the Yukon and Kenai Rivers sport fishing and commercial fishing has ended. You can expect tourist fishing on the Great Lakes waters to increase now. Warm Pacific waters due to global warming and over fishing by Pollack Trawlers are among the causes suspected.
  2. Most dead salmon feed the new hatch as the mountain streams are low in nutrients. On the Kenai/Russian River streams, wasted carcasses are required to be placed back in the streams as feed for the next hatch of eggs.
  3. Always troll with the wind on your stern to keep a steady course. The worst course is travelling straight into a strong wind. It sometimes is best to pick up all gear and travel upwind at high speed to return to your preferred waypoints.
  4. My brother took a sixty pound Chinook from thr Yehtna River a few years ago.
  5. We run three in line side planers on each side of the boat. Lead cores on all, dipsey divers on a 3 setting to get deeper or down riggers on the stern. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. A 120 pound chinook was taken from a fish trap near Tree Point, Ak at the turn of the last century. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Probably the fish was a six year old chinook that could have been determined. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. The DEC was effective in cutting back on stocking Chinooks along with natural reproduction numbers. The secret is in the forage base availability. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Some unknown Federal Agency is auctioning off underwater sites for windmill farms construction. The secret auctions happen without public knowledge, just keeping the public out of the comments so the auction money is in the banks first. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Wind mill farms off Germany and Denmark tie up areas of up to fifty square miles, not a 1500 foot circle area.
  11. The DEC always found an “Answer man” who could keep the public informed with their decisions and also put the “radicals” in their place. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Lakes Erie and Ontario are rivers with strong currents relative to surface winds. At Buffalo the lake surface will rise to plus nine foot but at Toledo ships will anchor off shore due to shallow conditions in the harbor. That is a tremendous volume of water moving distances of hundreds of miles. Offshore winds on the south shore will blow warm surface waters to Ontario and cold waters will upwell near the south shore. Fishing changes with water temperature changes. Surface winds make the lakes like rivers with current and water temperature changes. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
