Anglers throughout the Great Lakes are enjoying the annual fall Chinook Salmon run. Getting them to strike in many of the smaller tributaries where water levels are low and clear is challenging, especially after salmon are spooked. Anglers fishing larger rivers where Chinooks can hold in deeper runs and pools can gave a great time getting them to take skeened salmon eggs, flies, jigs, spinners, Luhr Jensen Hot Shot and KwikFish lures.
Chuck Rinehart who lives in Michigan, USA and just received a custom Ber Float Reel had an excellent Chinook Salmon trip on the Pere Marquete River, Michigan.
Chuck fished with his wife Michelle and guide Cody Leifers using a variety of gear.
They did best drifting a chunk of treated and color skeened salmon eggs under a float in quiet deep pool.
