These salmon hatch from eggs in rivers or are planted as smolts in the rivers. From there they make their way out to the Great Lakes where they spend the next 2-4 years cruising around and growing very fast and large.

When they reach full maturity they will ascend the rivers to spawn. This takes place as early as mid- July and will last into mid- October. On the way up to their spawning gravel they take their time to rest in slower pools and runs. They soon find a spot they find suitable to spawn and get on with business.
Once the spawning is complete they will remain on the gravel to protect the eggs from predators until Mother Nature tells them they have done their job and they slowly die.
