Cohos in the cold: Salmon appear on North Shore earlier than in most years

Though not as large as the Kamloops rainbows that patrol the shallows of Lake Superior this time of year, cohos have one quality that's highly valued by anglers.

"They're delicious," Goldsworthy said.

Hedberg has often fished for Kamloops rainbows through the years.

"Now I'm more interested in going after cohos because of the eating," he said.

He looked down at the shoreline of Lake Superior. Despite the presence of jumbled ice blown ashore not far away, he could see an opening where he would make some casts.


"It's fishable," he said. "I'll probably go home and get my fishing gear."
