Michigan chinook salmon

Michigan state records are recognized by weight only.

To qualify for a state record, your fish must exceed the current listed state record weight and identification must be verified by a DNR fisheries biologist.

If you think you’ve caught a state record fish, please contact a DNR fisheries biologist as soon as possible.

All potential state record fish MUST be weighed on a commercial scale (grocery store, meat market, etc.) and record the business name where scale is located.

If possible, attach weight slip.
