Dear Friends,

I do understand that the pressure is off on the Salmon River right now. I have also heard that steelies and Atlantics move up the river starting in May. Any information as a PM or post would be greatly appreciated.

I am thinking of giving the weekend a try and need some motivation.

All the best,

There are some Atlantics that come into the river as well as Skamania. The numbers are very small and are a difficult target in the summer flows 185cfs. I have seen Atlantics and Skamania in the lower fly zone but it is closed until Sept.They do have recreational releases for kayakers approx 3-4 times thru the summer. They increase the flow to 750cfs, I believe Pulaski has a web site and they post the flow dates. If I were to go I would plan around those dates, usually w/e.
I don't know how far you have to travel but it might not be worth the trip.
