Good Day On The River






5/02/07 --- It finally looks like the wild water flows are behind us, for at least a few weeks. Water flow on the Salmon River today, was 1800 CFS. The flow for tomorrow is predicted to drop down to 1100 CFS. After all this high water, fishing in 1100 CFS is going to be enjoyable. The last two days we took the drift boat out and floated from Altmar to Pineville. We have been finding and catching a lot of fish throughout the entire drift. We have been catching mostly spawned out Steelhead; however there still is plenty of Steelhead yet to finish spawning. Most of these spawn out Steelheads are in the upper river and are looking for something to eat. We are now spending more time swinging flies through the pools for these fish. Even though the water temperature is just starting to reach the 50 degree mark, we are starting to catch more steelhead on the swing. Our flies for today are black and brown woolly buggers in size 4 and a big ugly egg sucking Leach. If you have fished with me before, you know this fly.

One final note: I still have days open for steelhead fishing this month. This is one of the best runs of steelhead I have seen in about 10 years. Don't miss out, we're going into swing season my favorite time to steelhead fish.

If you are interested, e-mail me a note, or contact me at the fly shop number is 585-352-4775. Since I will be away from the shop and if you need to contact me directly, you may try my cell phone number 585-233-0436. You may need to be a little patient and consistent when trying to contact me on my cell phone. I am often out of cell phone service. The Salmon River has lousy cell coverage. You can always leave a message on my voicemail.
