Salmon is the usual name for assorted species of fish in the family Salmonidae. Various other fish in the same family are called trout ; the divergence is often said to be that salmon migrate and trout are nonmigratory, but this differentiation does not strictly hold true. Salmon live along the sea coasts of both the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and have also been inserted into the Great Lakes of North America. Salmon are intensively created in aquaculture in many parts of the world.
Generally, salmon are birthed in fresh water, migrate to the ocean, then return to fresh water to procreate. However, there are populations of various species that are cut back to fresh water through their life. Folklore has it that the fish coming back to the exact spot where they were birthed to engender; tracking written reports have shown this to be true, and this homing behavior has been shown to depend on a variety of factors.
Use a lure that has color and a green one is a solid choice. Greens, blues and blacks show up best in deep waters with any color working in the first fifty feet. Use flashers or rattle plugs to create sound and add scent to your lure.
Sharp hooks and quality bait will also do the trick.
