Salmon River 12/30

Hit the Salmon River in NY 12/30. 335 cfs out of the dam. Rio windcutter, 15 foot type 6 tip. Tried all sorts of swinging popsicles with no result. Put on a #10 pheasant tail nymph and hooked 4 steelies. 2 briefly one skipper (4-5lbs) jumped 2x and ran all over the pool, and one 12 lber which came right at me and I never got a good connection until he surged and broke me off. One of the problems I ran into was that when fishing the deeper slots, my 15 foot sink-tip would drape across the bottom in the shallower spots. I need to experiment with short tips I believe. Any experiance with the shorter faster sink rate tips?
