Michigan Chinook Salmon Fishing - Chinook salmon are the largest of the Pacific Ocean imports in Michigan waters, often attaining weights of 30 or more pounds. Chinooks prefer 54 degree F water, usually near structure, although they will sometimes suspend between top and bottom when food is nearby. They are often spooky in clear, shallow water and are intolerant of racket from churning props and flashing lures all around them. Chinook salmon like to prey on smelt, alewives and other minnows.
