Salmon Fishing is one of the most popular types of fishing. Salmon are tough-fighting fish – and they are very tasty too! There are several varieties to fish for available in different regions of North America. The most common varieties are:
• Sockeye Salmon
• Chum Salmon
• Cutthroat Trout
• Chinook Salmon
• Coho Salmon
• Steelhead Salmon
• Pink Salmon
One thing unique to Pacific Salmon is that they are born in fresh water, migrate to the ocean and return to the fresh water to reproduce. There have been studies done that prove a Salmon will return to the exact waters it was born in to reproduce. However there are landlocked Atlantic Salmon that can’t migrate. The Atlantic Salmon are in the Great Lakes and other large bodies of fresh water.
Salmon makes for a delicious meal! They are known to be oily, but that’s the good kind of oil with all the omega 3 fatty acids that are healthy. When you shop for Salmon, chances are that Salmon comes from a farm and is an Atlantic Salmon variety. Anglers fish for all varieties – and enjoy eating them all! Smoked Salmon, broiled, grilled, baked, seared – with or without butter – all very tasty!
