It has been hot! Way too hot for the month of September. Going into the upcoming week, weather conditions appear to be improving. At this point we definitely can use some serious wet weather. Over the Labor Day weekend, the water release on the Salmon River was bumped up to 750 CFS for white water recreational use. Normally this water release will trigger a run of salmon. But with the hot weather and water temperatures, water temperatures in the low to mid 70s only an hand full of salmon came into the river. Hopefully the weather forecast is accurate and we receive some rainfall over the weekend. As of now I think all the salmon need is an excuse to run. As of now the fishing is happening in the morning from first light to mid morning, while the air and water temperatures are still cool. With the low numbers of salmon in the river as of this time it is best to concentrate your efforts in the lower river and cover as much water as possible. The most consistent action has been in the Douglaston salmon run {DSR} portion of the river. For flies: we are using willing buggers in our favorite salmon fishing colors of Black, Brown copper, olive, and small intruders style flies.
The trout fishing, water flows in all of our streams and creeks are now very low. As for the bug activity, other than the window of opportunity being very early morning and not lasting long. Once again all this heat has left its mark. Not much has changed with the trout fishing.
