Canadian Atlantic Salmon

Recommended Posts

Fishing just west of 9 mile last April we took an Atlantic with a tag in it. We called the # on the tag and found out it was 1 of 96 tagged fish stocked out of Port Dalhousie in November of 2018. Pretty cool tagging program they have going in Canada and that little Atlantic sure was a swimmer traveling 220 kilometers. Fish was released in good shape.

Here is the fish and some data the program sent us. Fish was #6

I would love to see one caught in the St. Laurens 2 years from now on its way back home

I have often wondered if some of the Atlantics in Ontario head to the Atlantic Ocean via the St Lawrence River and hence a reason for low numbers showing up in Lake O:smile:

Likely some do, as they are having problems with Coho salmon on the Gaspe Peninsula, and they had to originate in New York, but the scientists are convinced that most stayed in LO.  Similarly, while some Cayuga salmon likely went out to LO, most stayed in Cayuga, Seneca, Oneida or Onandaga Lakes.

Didn’t they find some steelhead on the East coast from Lake O also?

Yes.  I believe Canadians were concerned about some runs of steelhead that developed off tribs to the St. Lawrence that they considered discontinuing stocking on the East end of the lake.
