Summer is definitely coming to a close.  The trout fishing continues to move along with the morning hatches of Tricos and the occasional Ant fall. Most of the fishing is in the mornings with the Trico spinner fall. However periodically there can be a few flying ants around to keep the fishing going well into the day. The challenge with ants is that there is almost no predicting when you will find the ants falling on the water. You need to be out looking for the opportunity.
As I said earlier summer is coming to a close. I have just recently got set up and will be starting to fish the Salmon River this week. I do not expect to see any strong runs as of this time, but I do need a few days to reacquaint myself with the river. This coming weekend has always been considered the official start of the Chinook salmon run. I do not expect any big catches of salmon at first but the fishing pressure is late and there are a few fish around. Water conditions are excellent for this time of year, water temperatures are in the low 60° range. Also water flows have been incredibly high for this time of year. At one-point last week waterfalls were slightly over 2000 CFS. With a constant flow ranging between 1500 to 1000 CFS. I personally do not remember when we had this much high water for the month of August. If this blast did not pull some fish, I would be extremely surprised.  I will be back on the Salmon River this week and will see what we have for fish. But I do expect see a run sometime over the next two weeks. As always these are salmon and they have a tendency to do their own thing despite what we think they should do. It’s good to be back fishing the Salmon River
