Salmon Fishing Lakes In Nebraska
Lake McConaughy and Lewis And Clark Lake are the two major lakes
in Nebraska with quality salmon fishing.
The Nebraska state record king (chinook) salmon was caught from
Lewis & Clark Lake. Both the NE state record coho
salmon and state record kokanee salmon was caught out of Lake McConaughy.
Pacific Salmon are born in and remain in freshwater streams for
the early years of life. The number varies by specie. Afterward
they migrate to the Pacific Ocean waters where they bulk up and
prepare for their once in a lifetime spawning run up the freshwater
stream where they were born. They will instinctively return to their
birthplace, spawn and die. They are found in the streams which into
the ocean and adjoining ocean waters of Northern California, Oregon
and Washington. They have also been stocked in the Great Lakes with
some success however the programs require continual stocking.
Growing to a size in the 15 pound range, the coho salmon lives
for three years in their journey to continue the propagation of
their species. Average catch is in the 8 to 12 pound range.
Salmon fishing is at it's best during the salmon runs which can
occur as early as May in the north to July as you move southward.
Often a late run may happen as late as October.
The preferred method for catching salmon is fly fishing. Depending
on the activity level, salmon may be caught on wet or dry flies.
