Fishing in Minnesota
If you fish for salmon in MN you are pretty much restricted to
Lake Superior and the tributary waters flowing into it. Many of
these rivers are the natural migration routes for salmon spawning.
The Minnesota state record atlantic salmon was caught out of the
Baptism River. The state record for chinook (king) salmon was a tie
with one fish coming from the Poplar River and the other from Lake
Superior. Lake Souperir also served up the state record coho salmon.
Caribou Lake was home to the state record kokanee salmon and the
Cascade River yielded the state record pink (huimpback) salmon.
