Salmon River Report

After cancelling our last trip we finally made it to Pulaski to swing spey flies for steelhead. On arrival we had water at 2,100cfs and coming down fast. We swung a variety of flies on skagit lines and 10'-12' T-14. Found fish at the head and tail out of the pools. Struggled with my double spey, need to find the hiccup and correct. Snap T is getting much easier and as I improve is taking much less effort.

As the water receeded the fish were off the bite. Most anglers I spoke to were not having much luck on the second day, water down to 1,500cfs. We didn't have a bump all day but noticed many fish headed for a B line towards the lake. Elvis had left the building.

Beautiful weather, with an up stream wind in the afternoon so learned to use a reverse double spey which I was performing better than my double spey.

Note to anyone using tube flies to check your hooks often. Had 2 good takes on a tube fly with no hook ups. A closer look revealed that the tube slid over the hook and prevented it from getting any purchase.

Ended up 4 fish landed for 9 takes.

Thanks Jim. We can discuss in more detail at the dinner. I've got a nice map of the river I can bring. I've learned some good swinging holes as well that were producing at 2,100 cfs.
