    Species: Whitefish are Salmonids, Grayling are not


    Fly Fishing News CoreyModich writes "I do not know too much about whitefish except what I've read in books whitefish have a fin thats right behind its dorsal (I forgot how to spell it) which is on every salmonid. Whitefish tend to like to go into moderate depths in lakes. But they can be caught in the night in places not even 3 feet deep! Most species of whitefish aren't native or are used as baitfish in Michigan.

    It's my favorite salmonid to catch, because of its beauty and they are a real challenge for flyfishermen to catch. Grayling are NOT salmonids though I believe it's because of thier dorsal fin (they have been classified as thymindae [I hope I spelled it right]) few (if any) are left in Michigan, because of overfishing and pollution.

    Note: Hmm does this mean we should have added whitefish to the Salmonid survey?"
