GLs - Trout & Salmon Grand Slam

Well its 5 degrees with wind chills of -11 degrees here in the windy city, not much fly fishing to be done unless you are into ice fly fishing.

Heres a question for the GLs fly flingers:

Who has caught the various species of the GLs andramous trout, and salmon on the fly ?

These species would include:

Trout

1. steelhead - summer run

2. steelhead - winter run

3. Brook trout - Coasters

4. Lake trout

5. brown trout

Salmon

6. atlantic salmon

7. king(chinook) salmon

8. Coho salmon

9. Pink salmon

Are there any others to be added to the list. Heres a link on great lakes fish species.

I have 6 of the 9 species above. I think the coaster brook trout would be the toughest to get since I will have to do the Lake Superior timing gamble.

Both steelies, chinook, one baby atlantic, and browns, plus resident rainbows in GL tribs. What about resident brookies in GL tribs?

I'll be working on the lake trout this spring.

Here goes,

1. steelhead - summer run yes

2. steelhead - winter run yes

3. Brook trout - Coasters no to a coaster (yes to a UP stream brookie) a coaster would be great

4. Lake trout yes (Grand River Michigan 6th st. dam 1988 on a yarn fly)

5. brown trout yes (both river and lake in Indiana no less as well as Mi. )

Salmon

6. atlantic salmon no (close encounter only)

7. king(chinook) salmon yes

8. Coho salmon yes

9. Pink salmon no was too early for the run

I have two , how many of these species in one day.

And how many different GL states (Peter can use countries) have you caught Steelhead in a single day.

For question #1 Chinook, brown, coho, and steelhead in one day.

For states in a day 3 Illinois(Eagle creek) Indiana, and Mi.

Here's my list:

1. steelhead - summer run - nope

2. steelhead - winter run - yep

3. Brook trout - Coasters - nope

4. Lake trout - close encounter only

5. brown trout - yep

Salmon

6. atlantic salmon - yep

7. king(chinook) salmon - yep

8. Coho salmo - no

9. Pink salmon - never seen one - do they have them in Ontario?

For question #1: Have done Steel and Browns on the same day, Kings and Browns on the same day and Atlantics and Kings on the same day. The quest for the slam continues!

For question #2: I've only fished the NY tribs but it sounds like you guys do a lot of run-and-gun in search of fish! 3 states in one day - wow

Is a lake trout considered andromodous?
There's alot of weird ones you could throw in there also.... Like splake and tigers.

Snozwangers, wangdoodles, vermicious kinids?

-Are there any splake or whitefish or tiger hybrids in Lake Michigan?

Splake, which are a cross between a brook trout and a lake trout, are stocked on a regular basis into Green Bay. Lake whitefish are native to Lake Michigan and the population has been increasing in recent years. Round whitefish, or menominees, are also native to Lake Michigan and their numbers are secure. Tiger trout, which are a cross between a brook trout and a brown trout, were stocked into the Wisconsin waters of Lake Michigan from 1974 through 1977. The program was discontinued due to poor returns.
--------------

Tiger trout are normally sterile, but i wonder if the ones they stocked were sterile or not. Definantly something to have a camera ready for.

Interesting, guess we would have to add Splake GLs slam list.

Although I doubt if i could tell the difference between one of them and a laker. To a coaster brook trout, I think I could.

Imaging the Splake stay in the lake and do not run the rivers but who knows.

There are several michigan rivers in which the lakers run and where you can catch them on the fly, thats where I got mine. They only come into a few rivers in late november usually. Don't know if any came in this year due to the low flows.

Since lajers, brookies and these hybrids are in the char family do they really belong on the list.

You forgot pinooks found in Superior.

Bob,

It looks like your the man, however to be a GLs slam would have to be caught from GL waters.

I think I know where you will be heading to get the slam.

Whats a pinook ?

Pinook???

Pinooks are a male Pink salmon x Female Chinook hybrid.
Hooked one in the Manistique(about 6#), had it to my feet before it tore loose
Michigan Fisheries recognizes the cross & requires 15# for a Master Angler Award. That little one tore me up, can't imagine 15#'s......
