Looking Good For The Week




Despite the warm weather, salmon continue to enter the Salmon River at Pulaski NY. The weather forecast for this week has a lot of rain and cool temperatures in it. If all of these conditions hold up, this week could be the best week of fishing so far. There is a lot of salmon yet to run, and the way things look they are on the way. Let's hope the weather forecast for the week holds up.

This fall has had one surprise so far....the giant runs of Coho salmon. Normally we will get into these fish for a few days in mid September and that will be it. This fall we are still catching Cohos almost daily.

A lot of you have been concerned that the water level on the Salmon River is too low for the salmon. As I have been saying, the Salmon do not know the water is low, they will run. The salmon that ran earlier last week have made it to the fish hatchery. 100 CFS is enough for the Salmon to run the river; it just takes a little longer for the Salmon to get there. We need to adjust to the conditions and shut up and fish!!!

By now I usually have all the productive flies figured out. But with the given current conditions I have had to do a lot experimenting each day to find what will work on any given day.

One final note; October 11th, 12th and 16th have opened up. If you are interested, call the fly shop at 585-352-4775, or you can leave me a voice mail on my cell phone at 585-233-0436. If you send me an e-mail, remember it might take me a couple days to get back to you.

If you have not seen Jeff's giant 26 pound, Coho Salmon? Then here it is!
