Fri, 19 Nov 2021 07:35:17 EST

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has announced that Fall egg-takes have been completed for wild Chinook and coho salmon, but are ongoing for captive broodstocks - the mature fish used for breeding - of brown, rainbow, brook and lake trout.

Chinook salmon eggs were collected September 30th through October 7th at the Little Manistee River Weir, and coho salmon eggs were collected October 17th through November 2nd at the Platte River State Fish Hatchery Weir.

Officials say they have been working to gather the eggs for the continued production of hatchery fish that support Michigan’s fisheries, and that effort will continue this winter.
