Fishing in Youngstown was always a major industry from the Blue Pike days up until the advent of trout and salmon stocking in recent years. Commercial fishing abounded in the early days.

Father Louis Hennepin, Missionary and Historian, is believed to be the first  to write of sightings of native salmon in our surrounding waters when he wrote about seeing these huge fish around 1678 trying to cascade the great Falls.
