Salmon River #3

Took the trip up to the Salmon yesturday. Water temp 34 deg flow 1000-1200, tough day. Brought the spey rod but left it in the truck, too cold, managed one very nice chromer nymphing. I'm sure the river is full of fish but they are shut down. Great to be out, fresh snow made a beautiful scene walking through the hemlocks.

Jim,
I don't think they got much out of this latest storm though they had a bit on the ground when I was up last. Looks like I'll be going up over the weekend. Let me know if you plan on making the trip.

Joe

Jim, I made it up Saturday morning and stayed through Sunday afternoon not too many people on the water . Couldn't beat the weather Saturday was balmy for January. Fish were sluggish managed two chromers on a blue moal leech swung slow and deep. Sunday weather turned a bit and water temps dropped 4 degrees I was able to land a beautiful Brown trout I would guess was about 10-11 pounds probably my largest to date so needless to say I was pretty happy she also took the blue leech swung tight to the bank at the very end of the swing. Unfortunatly left my camera in the truck
Not bad for a mid winter trip by my standards. Hope to get back up this month if the weather cooperates.

Good on you Joe!
Sounds like you worked hard for good results! Not a bad day of Winter fishing.
Any of those tiny black stones crawling around on the snow?

No stones that I noticed Jim. Maybe a little early yet? I think I did see a few Blue wing olives come off Saturday.
