Salmon River reports

scott owens (trap) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Salmon are still running (10/31/11)
Walt Geryk (NeffGuide) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Good Higher Flows, but the mixed weather, rain and snow and the melt, with the added 32 degree runoff into the river will slow the older fish down, but the fresh fish and earlier post spawners will begin to feed more aggressively as soon as the water begins to warm. Look for sunny and slow water deeper pools and seams. Look for fly and spey fishing to be fair until the water temps rise. Will only get better in the coming days! To swing flies effectively, you must understand the spey fly, it's profile and the proper speed needed for optimal presentation. Important fly tracking techniques, as well as a properly tied fly to a leader, are major elements required to achieve maximum effectiveness and success. Learn these and more with Hardy Endorsed Guide & Instructor Walt Geryk. (03/26/11)

Walt Geryk (NeffGuide) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Salmon river is fair to good depending on syles of fishing. Fly and spey is directly related to experience, especially during this time of year. Proper presentations of larger flies and fly speed is crucial for success. The bottom bouncers and nymphers along with the use of floats and those who use split shots are faring better while using these techniques. Looking forward to possibly an early starting and longer lasting spring compared to last year. Also, there are plenty of fish in the lower river waiiting to make their spring spawing run. With the melt of this weekend, many are making there move. (02/20/11)
Walt Geryk (NeffGuide) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Two special guests one from England and the other from Canada came in search of their first winter steelhead and they were not disappointed. Spey and fly fishing was good as they were able to land a hand full of nice steelies, a brown trout and an Atlantic. Most fish came on swinging larger spey flies with a couple coming on nymphs under my "Bob B Mendicator System". SLUSH and freezing temps has much of the river from the Trestle Pool down slushed up. Steelhead are spread throughout the river. Water temps pressing into the low 30s so it's time to slow down the swing of flies and the drift of nymphs. Continue to cover lots of water for success. Fishing in general has been pretty good with more brown trout action chasing large bright speys and streamers up high in the water column, and darker colors down deep. Plenty of fresh chrome around too. (01/29/11)
Mark Keniston (uplandguide) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Had a day off the river so thought I'd post. Focus is all steelhead with good success. It is Oct 28 so things will only get better. Nov and Dec are always HOT. (10/28/09)
