Danny Lunn of Portage holds the Indiana Fish of the Year chinook salmon caught in September in Salt Creek. The 42.2-inch bruiser is also believed to be the first 30-pound plus salmon caught in Indiana waters in several decades. The fish appears to be a wild-produced king as all hatchery-produced chinook had been adipose fin-clipped.

More Chinook, better quality coho, but no Skamania for the Little Calumet River system.

That is the 2020 Indiana stocking plan outlined by Department of Natural Resources officials before a gathering of 45 interested anglers at Red Mill County Park on Thursday.
