Tying for Pulaski

I'll probably head up to Pulaski sometime bewtween now and Christmas and am wondering what go-to patterns for the area I should be tying. Somehow whenever I'm up there, water's near 32 and it's too cold to swing flies, so I end up bottom-dredging.
What half-dozen or dozen patterns should I stock up on?

what works for me.

rushers steelhead stone nymphs are my fav they have trigger of pom pom egg as well as small black stone body which hatch and crawl around on the snow under your feet. great one fly for pulaski in my opinion. green caddis in the sun is one of my other favs. most of my friends are into egg suck leeches. i like lil oregon cheese micro eggs dead drifted on south sandy in higher winter flows

Josko,

I have taken steelhead in Jan and Feb swinging flies up there. Don't be afraid to bring the big flies up with you and let them swim.

Thanks gfuys. I'll be up the first week in December, staying at the 1880 house and fishing with Dave Barber. It's be great to meet up with others from this board up there.

Dave Barber

Dave Barber is probably one of the better/best guides on the Salmon. If you ask him he will tell you the patterns that will work for your trips time frame. Give him a call a week or two in advance to see if there is a pattern that has suddenly turned on and become the "HOT" fly.

Yes. We do this every year. Dave describes some new fly over the phone, I tie a bunch, and then we have a good laugh over the differences between what I tied and what he had in mind.

Since you asked. These are my Fall-Spring Steelie boxes for the Salmon. They all work for me.
River is high now at 1800+ runoff ..... but when it receeds ..... I'll be there!
Let me know when you plan on coming to NY .... we can meet up.

Tying for pulaski

Nice selection Jim. I usually am on the river the last week of Nov. Cancelled this year due to high water and weather, first time in 20 yrs. The Salmon has been running about 2000+cfs below pineville and the tribs are mostly blown. The reason for the high water on the Salmon is the repair work being done on the dam, they have to keep the water down. Scheduled completion is NOV.7 but sources in the area estimate about a week behind sched.
My bags are packed and truck is loaded I'M READY!!!

High water has probably brought a better than average share into the river from the lake and washed a lot of the salmon stink downriver too. Might make the drive myself... maybe a SR clave (wasnt someone talking about that recently?)

Juro,
this weather has our schedule suddenly wide open for this time of year. we would be up for something anytime, lots of new toys to play with. see what can be done to put something together before winter really sets in. any sunday would be perfect or even saturdays.

Nick

Tying for pulaski

I believe someone was talking about a mini clave or get together over Thanksgiving. Regardless of when I'm in. If I gewt any advance info on the dam repair completion I'll post. I'm sure when the work is done the flows will come down to about 335 cfs for a while as they refill.
