Salmon River Fishing Report 4/3/11
Steelhead fishing continues to be good most days but other days we struggle.
We fish different spots and different techniques about everyday. Floats, plugs, flies, deep holes, gravel, fast pockets. What a pleasure to fish this time of year, but you need to be in the right place at the right time.
For us, eggs sacs in pink and white have been number 1. Beads in tangerine, glo row and pink are #2 worms have been #3.
Fish everything! The heads, tails, gravel, slow water, you never know where you will find a dropback, fresh fish or a brown. You have to cover it all.
Tom Bartlomew has pounded fish with me on the big pond so this was his first river trip. Along with Scott they learned the ropes and we picked away.
Pat McClure along with his wife Becky his nephew Rory, his sister in law Ellen and her husband Nud, all enjoyed several good days of fishing on the salmon.
