Lake Sammamish Chinook Salmon

This video demonstrates fishing on Lake Sammamish for salmon. Check out the size of these catches!
Each year, King County's Lake Sammamish has a nice run of chinook salmon returning through it to reach the Issaquah Hatchery. This often over-looked urban fishery has the potential to give up chinook salmon upwards of thirty pounds. All kinds of salmon like chinook, kokanee, king, sockeye, and coho can be found migrating through here! Usually open in mid-August, you don't want to miss giving this fishery a try!
