Coho Salmon

Coho salmon fishing is excellent during the run-up of the rivers in the fall. As The Coho travel upstream in search of a spawning location, anglers have incredible action. These fish can be caught using spoonssmall minnow baits, and spinners. Also, fly fishing will be effective. As the Coho settles upstream, anglers can enjoy action until the ice freezes in December. Sunrise and sunset are the best times to try to catch Coho. Be sure to have pliers for when you remove the hook, as Coho salmon have sharp teeth.

After the ice breaks up, river Coho salmon make the long journey back to a cooler part of the lakes, which is where they can be found in the summer months. Note that fish return to the same area where they were spawned. So, if great action happens one season, be sure to try that spot next year. Fish for deep pockets in the river as they frequent these spots. The average size of these in the rivers of Toronto is between five and eleven pounds, but they reach up to twenty pounds.
