Lake Huron Salmon Fishing - Tips for Fishing The Big Water
Lake Huron salmon fishing offers a wide variety of species and seasonal fishing options. Anglers need to be aware of when the best times are to fish for the different types of salmon found in the lake, as well as some of the most effective lures and tackle used in the lake. While various weather conditions will affect Lake Huron salmon fishing strategies and tips there are definitely some aspects of fishing that is related to the species themselves.
Coho Salmon
The Coho, one of the most popular sports fishing species of the Lake Huron salmon fishing season, is an ideal sports fish for either new or experienced anglers. The season is open year round on the lake, with one deep water fishing landing any Coho during winter months. In the early spring and fall the Coho move towards the mouth of the Spanish river or the North Channel, providing excellent opportunities for shallow water fishing. The fish can reach up to twenty pounds at this time, but most will weigh between twelve and fifteen pounds.
When the fish are starting to move from the deep lake waters to the shallower waters by the mouth of the rivers the best option is slow trolling using silver or brightly colored spinners or Rapala lures that look like small bait fish. Some fishermen also use downriggers set at the depth indicated by a fish finder, usually between fifty to twenty foot depths.
Chinook Salmon
Chinook salmon, also known as King salmon, are also popular as a Lake Huron salmon fishing variety. The Chinook salmon is typically larger than the Coho with some weighing in at over to thirty pounds, while most averaging at about twenty pounds.
Chinook, like Coho, tend to follow predictable season patterns which makes choosing when to plan a holiday for Lake Huron salmon fishing relatively easy. There are two different licenses available for salmon fishing on Lake Huron, the conservation licenses that allows 2 fish per day with 2 in possession, or the sports fishing license which allows anglers 5 fish per day with 5 in possession.
Chinook salmon are often fished in the river mouth area where they are waiting for the spring rains to raise the level of the river water so they can move upstream to spawn. Many anglers report that using eggs or egg skein, or rattle baits will cause the salmon to strike on a hook. In addition many Lake Huron salmon fishing enthusiasts report that silver, white and gold spinners and lures as the murky water at the mouth of the river really makes this lures show up in the water.
If you are planning a vacation or trip do enjoy some Lake Huron salmon fishing consider booking one of the many fishing guides that provide fishing tours on the lake, at least for your first trip.

Are you one of those people who seem to get hooked with salmon fishing? Who can blame you for that? Most of salmon fishing experts either started to learn fishing at an early age or have learned to fish just a few years ago. And do you know what they have to say about salmon fishing? Once they have tried it, they got hooked to it ever since and I think you have just turned into one of them. So, how’s your salmon fishing? Were you able to reach your limit?
Actually, if you are new to this, shall we say, pastime and you can’t seem to catch as much salmon as other fishermen can, then I guess you need more than a lot of practice. You definitely can also use some salmon fishing tips to get your hopes up. But before we go to salmon fishing tips, you should know first what salmon likes and dislikes. By knowing these things will help you catch them.
* Salmon like cloudy water with lots of plankton or other particles to keep them hidden from other predators. In other words, you can seldom find them in clear waters, unless if they get hungry. Most likely they show up at nighttime and before sunshine.
* They prefer large baits, which is about 5-7 in.
* They don’t like warm water. They only appear in warm water just to feed.
* They hate calm water with plenty of boats, especially the king salmon. They would prefer choppy waters.
After knowing what salmon like and dislike, you probably have a little idea on what to expect and what to do. Now, you’re ready to learn more of the salmon fishing tips. One of the most important salmon fishing tips that you should learn is attracting salmon with your bait or lure. The action of your bait can attract the attention of salmon and if you have good rolling and erratic action, you’ll have greater chance of attracting salmon and catching them. Know also the kind of food they feed, whether they eat anchovies, herring, or squid, and make your bait look injured. The moment a salmon hits on your bait or lure, it thinks of dinner. The more your bait looks like wounded and struggling, the more it gets the attention of salmon.
Among the most important salmon fishing tips is keeping your hooks sharp as much as possible. Sounds obvious, but most fishermen overlook this issue. Now, if your concern is getting the bigger guys, especially the Chinook salmon, and you can’t catch any, it’s probably because they are disturbed with your boat’s noise. Actually, king salmon aren’t bothered with boats, but there are times that they are. If this is the case, have your bait or lure 50–60 feet behind your boat and 20-25 feet down.
Now that you have learned some useful salmon fishing tips, all you have to do is use them and see if you can catch more salmon this time. Also, don’t be reluctant to get some more fishing tips from other fishermen who are experts with this hobby. It will help a lot!
