    Hit two swinging yesterday in the DSR and the one I connected with threw the hook the second time it jumped. Had a couple tugs today on the SR and then headed out to OZ. Connected with one and then nothing else the rest of the day.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    hit the salmon Friday-sun.......friday had lower river to myself literally did not see another person, but the fishing wasnt very good either. Saw little fish movement in the mornings and only had a couple hookups fishing hard til a bit after noon. Headed up river a bit and fishing was a little better. Ended up with 3 fish on friday, all of which came in that last push that usually occurs in the evening. Saturday/Sunday stayed up river. Fishing was decent , but definitely a lot of fish around. Took fish on nymphs, sucker spawns, and in the afternoon did best with streamers on a downstream swing to draw aggressive strikes when fish seemed to stop taking dead drift presentations. Overall, probably landed a dozen fish and lost a good amount more, but fishing was not as good as I expected for this time. Mornings were hit and miss by reports, and fish were not active throughout the river, you had to move around to find find fish willing to take. On a positive note, I did catch my biggest steelhead ever on saturday. The fish was mid- upper 30's in length and atleast 15lbs, absolutely gigantic it looked like a king salmon when I first saw him in the water. Fish took a large egg sucking leech pattern and made the trip.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    Camera was DEAD once we beached him....which may have been a good thing bc as I was pulling my camera out of my vest the guy next to me who helped me land the fish lost control of the fish and he swam back in the river...it woulda hurt more had the camera been working. Shit happens but would have loved to been able to look back at this fish it truly was a gargantuan mutant of a steelhead, very chrome too which made him even more impressive looking.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    fished the staircase with a buddy on saturday 11/3. water was up around 350-400 i think..rain/sleet/snow all day, just how i like it. we went 3/12 on steel, 0/2 browns, and i got taken for a ride by a large ~20 lb coho that almost took my entire line/backing before i popped it on purpose. fish were taken on pale yellow sucker spawns thruout the day with the morning/evening having the most action.
    highlights of the day were landing a 17lb skamania on my 3rd cast and then later setting the hook on a 20 or so lb. pink coho that put on an aerial show and then torpedo'd downstream almost taking my entire line/backing. all fish were taken in mouth using 8lb fluoro with a couple split shot under indicators.

    all in all a great time and it was good to get out of the destruction that is NJ however not sure if i can handle the one suicide trips anymore, i am still exhausted. can anyone recommend a really cheap hotel/motel? thinking about solo tripping this weekend.

    thanks

    Did a couple suicide runs solo last year and probably won't again...shit got sketchy and you're beat for work the next day.

    There will be a group of us up this weekend, feel free to link up...details have yet to be ironed out but rooms are reserved...I'm guessing the storm and the state of NJ have set people back, or maybe Beetle did somehow undermine the BASH...fear not we will fish on.
    More details in the BASH thread

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    Sounds like everyone has been doing very well. The water is a little low for swinging in some of my favorite areas, but will make for some nice indicator fishing. Starting my 6 day trip tomorrow at the DSR. They don't open until 7am now, so I don't have to quite get up so early. On Thursday I will be bringing my brother, who has yet to catch a steelhead, up to the FZ's. I assume the LFZ opened as scheduled?

    I am hoping I can get into another nice large male brown so I can photoshop it for TT again. I know how much he appreciates my work.

    Suicide day trips are awesome! But I only live 2+ hours from the river. I can't even imagine how many of the 52,000 miles on my car are from going back and forth to the SR.
