    Actually it's more like 14.5lbs as it is .10mm, which is 1x tippet.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    never really got into the line diameter much, but does this mean drennen is stronger And more visable? Or just stronger? I find there 4lb test gets a lot more strikes than fishing regular 6lb floro in the winter ,but if these numbers of added diameter are true, that would mean the 4lb drennen is as thick if not thicker as the 6lb floro of various brands I used to use.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    You nailed it flyI4. This is Drennen's attempt to convince people that there line is the strongest, because of their mislabeling. Below are a few charts from Seaguar G-Max tippet, Orvis Mirage tippet and Drennon floro material. These charts make me ask 2 questions of Drennon. First, if they truly think their .10mm line is only 6lbs, then they need to get out of the business. Second, if they claim that their .10mm line is only 6lbs, when in reality is is probably at least double that, then what the hell? I have never used drennen, from what people say, it is great stuff and I have purchased 2 spools of it, the 4lb and 5lb. However, when I tie them on, I will be realizing that I am using 3x and 2x tippet and expect the breaking points to be in the 9lb and 12lb area. I'll be comparing it to G-max and Mirage during bash week. I'll give you my thoughts around a cold beer that weekend.

    When I am selecting a tippet to fish with on any given day, I choose it based on diameter, which translates into what the fish can and can't see in any given flow. I find it easiest to go by the "X" factor that is used in fly fishing tippet terms, even on the big boys.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    Fished 10.20 & 10.21.

    Got to the river at 9:30 am to find things crowded lower in the river. River temps are posted on whitaker's site at 50 F with overnight lows in the 40s. Flows in the mid 500's in pineville made for some OK flows downstream.

    Saturday was fairly crowded at a lot of the main spots. It seems that a group of 3-5 guys can really occupy a spot for some time and it is difficult as a solo fisherman to keep people from fishing the run you're at. Can't blame people who fish so close to you, as it's so darn crowded. All egg patterns on Saturday, I went 2 for 6. All fresh chrome, all fish were so hot it was tough to land the fish. Seems as if fish are really moving through the river as I saw a lot of fish, but could not manage to entice strikes from the majority of the fish I spotted. Fish seem to be hooked in faster, choppier water.

    Sunday was very similar with people all over the place. Went 1 for 3 with two hook ups on nymphs. Fished some more quiet water in between spots and had some enjoyment with out people all around. Fished til 11:30 am and took off.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    How could I forget...

    LEAVES. Saturday was bad in regard to the leaves. It was often tough to get your the fly down because of the leaves. A fair amount of leaf hits.

    The leaf situation on Sunday was almost unbearable. It did appear that the pinners were still able to achieve their hero drifts, perhaps because they had less line from their bobber, or float as they like to sugar-coat that shit. I almost called it quits early b/c it was so bad with the leaves. My mindset during the leaf hatch is to fish a color that is in contrast to the leaves ( orange & yellow ). Yet, I was fishing my favorite pattern, an orange / yellow combo, and experiencing hook ups.

    I have my next trip planned for Nov. 13-15. Hopefully, the leaves and salmon/combat-style fisherman will be gone. One thing I always keep in mind this time of the year is the adjustment of the clocks. Bear in mind that the sun will rise earlier in a little bit so prepare to get to the river earlier in the morning once the clocks change.

    Dumping the reservoir in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy. let's hope she hits the area or else the river is screwed for the winter. I really can't blame the however after the October 2010 flood.

    With enough wind and rain from the storm, the water might be at the 750 mark for the bash, with plenty of steelhead upriver & all the zombies washed out of the river with the leaves.

    It's going to suck when the storm turns out into the Atlantic and we don't get any of the rain.

    Water already down to 335 CFS. They hardly got any rain up on the tug. On a bright side, hardly a soul was on the river today.
