Hi guys! Former active member...relocated years ago..I live in Michigan...caught 2 Coho Salmon today in a Michigan river, 29 and 30"...lost five of em....also got a 3 lb smallie, a dink smallie, and a really nice channel catfish. The channel was caught in the same run I lost a 36 inch or so coho.

Figured I would swing back around and share my catches, not bad for 6 hrs fishing.

Most places are tight quarters for the cohos in michigan like 50 guys fishing a single run or two below tippy dam..but I saw only 5 other anglers all day where I fish. May not be like middle of nowhere in the mountains but just wade a few miles and you will be alone, fair weather anglers, which are most salmon fishermen, are lazy.

I used to live in Michigan in the 70's and caught lots of steelies, coho and a couple of chinook. Beautiful State, but even then it was crowded. Yesterday I caught 10 rainbows from 14 to 16" on flies of my own design and one 19" pig. My fishing partner was a great blue heron that was fishing along the bank scarfing up minnows. I was often within 5 feet of that bird and we became buddies. No one else around and the water was flat calm most of the day. The peaceful tranquility is a rare event these days and I treasure it even more than the fishing! Sorry to say this but I wish all of you would move back to the midwest!
