I thought it was interesting the article didn't say the fish had a tag in it. If not it's not one that was planted. So...

oh 'm sure tats  one of the stocked fish I'm sure  ...I find it interesting they stock suck a limited  amount  why not stock Ontario and the other lakes  and why not stock enough so we can legally fish for them

taxid they are cool to see I caught on in Oneida river  ....

a lot have been caught but the guys aen't going to post pictures because of all the tree huggers going crazy yelling about taking the 2 seconds to take the picture ......

In Maine, it’s still possible to catch an Atlantic salmon (besides the landlocked variety), but it’s illegal to even pull it out of the water. People still catch them, any pics I’ve seen are with the fish grabbed by the tail or in a net, but still in the water.

I wondered how big the ones they stocked are because it takes a long time to grow to that size?

With all the fish and game departments trying to reintroduce species and stocking native fish vs. exotic, you would think they would want to make Lake Ontario the way it was once by pushing Landlocked Atlantic salmon. Lake Ontario once had an incredible amount of native landlocked salmon.

Here's a big one out of I think Torch Lake in Michigan.

Might be the camera/fish angle, but that doesn’t look like an Atlantic... way too broad and the head shape isn’t right. Otherwise that is a “pellet pig” of a landlocked salmon. Here’s a native I caught this spring from Sebago (Maine)



Edit:

After looking at this pic closer, I agree it’s an Atlantic, and I take back the comment about the other one being too broad for an Atlantic lol. But the head shape still looks like a chinook to me (at least from the images I’ve seen)

Seamonkey84,

What's throwing you off is it's a very fast growing fish with all the groceries it will ever need. That means the head is disproportionately small for the body because the head cartilage doesn't keep up with the rest of the body. I see it all the time in my pellet fed pigs.
