Indiana Salmon Fishing - Join The Chinook Fishing And Feeding Frenzy!
By Rika Susan

If you're seeking salmon in Indiana you'll head north to the Great Lakes! Lake Michigan, the largest freshwater lake in the US was first stocked with salmon in the late '60s.

Now this 300 mile long lake and its tributaries have abundant salmon available for the keen sports fishermen who converge on the area during the season. In fact the lake is practically teeming with Chinook (King Salmon), Coho, Steelhead and Lake Trout. Chinook is present in just about equal numbers in Lake, LaPorte and Porter county.

The best time to be successful with Indiana salmon fishing? According to the experts the best chance of getting that bite is when the fish are at their most active, either when feeding that big, sleek body, or when starting the upriver spawning runs.

Most of this serious activity takes place fom August when you will find these magnificent beasts offshore, with the feeding frenzy ending late in the month in preparation for breeding.

Best time-of-day for Indiana salmon fishing would be early morning during the runs, when low-light conditions are favored by the Kings. However there will always be some chance of success on the lake even during daylight hours!

If you need some guidance and want to get local assistance, there are experienced adventure companies organizing group outings. They will take you to the best spots and mostly even provide you with the necessary tackle and gear to make your experience something to remember!

Don't forget those licences! Anglers aged 17 and up who plan to fish Indiana public lakes, streams, rivers or tributaries must have a valid fishing license. You will also need a valid trout and salmon stamp in your possession to legally fish for or take trout and salmon from public waters.
