Alewives Mean Salmon

The Leland river is full of alewives of all age classes and that means salmon can’t be far behind. In years when we have a lot of “bait” in the area the salmon stop to feed and don’t leave until the urge to spawn pushes them away from the banquet table or winter weather causes them to move. Some are now saying that the salmon don’t all go to the southern end of the lake like we have always thought, but may stay out in very deep water in the middle of the lake. Regardless of where the go then, they hear the dinner bell ring when the bait moves back in shallow and follow. So, now with that build up I should show you pictures of boards of fresh-caught salmon, but I think we’ll have to wait a little while longer for that. The important thing is that we seem have plenty of bait and fishing should get better week by week through the summer.
