Great Lakes Atlantics

Dog friend, Jeff Liskay, shows a mint-bright Atlantic salmon caught in the St. Mary's River at Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The river is the outlet of Lake Superior to Lake Huron and forms part of the international border with Ontario, Canada.

The Aquatic Research Laboratory at Lake Superior State University handles all the stocking, monitoring, and research with Atlantics in the upper Great Lakes.

Jeff and JD fished with Capt. Brad Petzke of Rivers North Guide Service and had a couple days of top-notch fishing for Atlantics and some large resident rainbows.
