Great Lakes Atlantic

Long-time dog friend, Scott Rod Pro Staffer, Patagoniac, and Michigan river guide, Russ Maddin, shows a male Atlantic salmon in full fall regalia. Russ caught this fish in a small northern MI river. There is an active stocking program for Atlantics on the St. Mary's River that connects Lakes Superior, Huron, and Michigan. Some of these fish "get lost" and end up in other waters.

Russ is based in Traverse City and works with Hawkin's Outfitters.
