There are some who doubt the reality of the “Salmon” in the Salmon River. Based on campfire tales primed with scotch, some folks hint at pink-fleshed catfish as the source of salmon tales.
Yes indeed there were Atlantic salmon in the Salmon River (along with pink-fleshed catfish). No they did not migrate along the St. Lawrence annually. They were a large, landlocked population of Atlantic salmon trapped in the Lake Ontario basin when it was transformed from a sea basin to a freshwater lake. They migrated up rivers draining into the Lake: the Credit, the Humber, Etobikoke Creek, even the Don, Duffin’s Creek and yes, the Salmon rivers, both ours in Ontario and the other one in New York state.
