State officials in Michigan collected more than twice as many chinook and coho salmon around Lakes Michigan and Huron this year than they did last year. According to the Traverse City Record-Eagle, this year's take of 57,000 fish grossly exceeded last year's total of 28,000.
If you're making salmon fishing plans for the future, the Boardman River boasted the most salmon, with its 18,248 fish, six times as many as last year. About 11,600 of those were coho salmon, and 7,200 were chinooks. – Rick Bach
