Lake Superior Atlantic Salmon

Though this article is doesn’t talk fly fishing specifically, it’s a good history lesson about salmon stocking in Lake Superior and the distribution of Atlantic salmon in the north-central U.S. “‘Salmon’ is derived from an ancient word meaning ‘the leaper’ and may hark back to Sanskrit, one of the earliest-known Indo-European languages. Delicatessens from Bogota to Berlin sell Atlantic salmon under the name ‘lox,’ an ancient Hebrew word that also means ‘leaper.'” Eric Sharp in the Detroit Free Press.
