Pacific Salmon are born in and remain in freshwater during the early months of life. Afterward they migrate to the Pacific Ocean waters where they bulk up and prepare for their once in a lifetime spawning run, returning up the freshwater rivers and stream where they were born. They will instinctively return to their birthplace, spawn and die. They are found in many rivers and streams which lead to the ocean waters of California. Their sprit and will to survive many of life challenges provide one of the best thrill for any angler
