Salmon River Fishing Report 10/7/10
I am sorry I don’t update this page everyday. I get so many e-mails looking for info and I do the best I can with the time I have.
Water is high and colored Still a lot of people in town but not the numbers that the area needs to make it through another winter.
To all of you who are still fishing, we all thank you for your support.
To those of you that want to know about how the river has changed, other than major erosion, loss of river bank and hundreds of tress gone forever, I will not know what holes have changed until the water drops and clears and to be honest I will probably keep any new secret holes to myself for awhile, sorry but it is what it is. :)
Here is how it breaks down.
60% of the people are in the small streams and ditches doing bad things to the fish. As much as they are spending money, this is not good.
30% of the people are on the river and creeks and have no clue what to do or where to fish. They are discouraged and depressed.
10% of the people are fishing the Salmon River and are pounding fresh kings and giant chrome trout. They have it figured out. They just fish to them. Savvy anglers are using big gooey egg sacs and hunks of skein under floats or bottom bouncing. Fly guys are swinging bright flies, in fluorescent orange, chartreuse and pink and getting the job done.
This is bang tango time! Just fish and hang on!!

Web Cam Update
As of right now the camera is smoked and no idea iof & when it will go back up. The cost to get it going is about $2,000.00 if we get close to that in donations we will replace it, otherwise it is history. Sorry. If for some reason you decide to send in a donation and it we do not get enough to do the work we will of course refund your donation to you. You have my word on that.
Again I have October 16 open. Call me if you want it!
Stay safe and do not wade out the fish are at your feet.
