Cold Water Creates Extraordinary Salmon Season on St. Mary's River

Beyond noting that “many people stand where they should be fishing and fish where they should be standing,” Eric Sharp says it’s hard to go wrong during this extended salmon season on the St. Mary’s River. “Most years the St. Marys steelhead run would have petered out by June. This year, the big, migratory rainbows are still thick as fleas in the rapids on the Canadian side of the river, and they should be there at least another two weeks and maybe longer.” In the Detroit Free Press.
