    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    fished saturday 11.10 through monday 11.12 - weather was great with highs in the 60's and flows steady all three days at about 425 in pineville. without runoff, neither trout nor spring brook were adding much flow to the river downstream of the gauge. would LOVE to see some more water up there. i love fishing 750, 1000 & 1250 flows.

    11.10 - got to the river at 8:45 am from leaving my house in hunterdon county at 4:30 am. i fish the lower end of the river and got right in to the spot i wanted. fished for a few hours there with two other guys. i went 4/5 there, all chromers except for 1 crusty, colored up steel. all on egg patterns. a gentleman i'm friendly with, from the both of us frequenting the same spots, arrived at about noon and hooked 1 fish. tried a bunch of other familiar spots that afternoon with no luck. all hook ups on egg patterns.

    11.11 - the dsr unfortunately opens at 7 am which ultimately ruins your chance to fish at first light. the fella's who run the place are top notch but it KILLS me to walk down those steps with any sort of visibility. went 1/4, all hook ups, like saturday, were in the same run. i made another familiar spot pay & hooked 4 fish within a few hours. had an older gentleman watch me play the fish, i had corralled the chromer within the smaller, VERY discreet tailout for some time but he broke loose & made a run downstream in to the rapids. i literally had to run after this fish, hopping from one rock to the next. finally beached her at a small island in the middle of the river. when i got back to my spot, the guy fishing well above me gave me the thumbs up - nothing like sacrificing your body to land a steelhead. hooked three on egg patterns, but did get my first nymph hook up of the season. spoke to several people i frequently see at the river - all reported sloow days and reported only seeing a few hook ups throughout the day.

    11.12 - fished four hours on monday. went 1/4. made another familiar spot pay for the first time this season. fresh chromer in a run that is usually good for 1-2 fish throughout the day. all on egg patterns. rain came in that night and rose the river about 100 cfs......i just missed it. but i did manage to go 6/13 in 20 hours of fishing. kind of slow. i had put that thought in perspective while thinking about fishing at work yesterday - if i were to ever grow the nuts & fly to prince george, drive to smithers and fish the morice, bulkley, kispiox, telkwa, suskwa rivers i'd be ecstatic with a 6/13 3 day trip. so to put things in perspective, fishing was great, the la fin du monde was cold and the weather was pleasant.

    Yeah, but the fish out there live in the ocean, are wild, and a lot bigger.

    Salmon River and the DSR were a zoo today. So I went else where. Managed one brown and a couple soft takes.

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    Fished the salmon river 11.24 & 11.25. Perma-flow around 450 cfs in Pineville. WIND was nasty saturday. Nasty, if we weren't getting in to fish, the more beer would have flowed sooner.

    Fished with a buddy Saturday - he had a few more hook ups but we both landed two fish. Mostly chromers with a few colored up fish. Again, mostly egg patterns with 1 nymph hook up. It was very quiet at the Doug that day, in comparison to the other weeks in Nov. I went 2 for 5.

    Managed to be the first one down the upper steps at the Doug Sunday morning. Said hello to Petey Owens & had a great day of fishing. Weather was much better Sunday. Winds had subsided and lake effect weather dumped about a half foot of snow throughout the day. It was great because there was only a few others there. It seemed from my random sampling, big boys entered the lower river that morning. All chromers, with the majority of fish I got in to at or above the 30" mark. Two fish I can recall getting in to absolutely schooled me. Some nymph hook ups on hare's ears and stonefly nymphs of varying colors. I went 3 for 10 but all missed fish were lost after lengthy battles.

    Bitched out Sunday morning and drove home.

    It was (and still is) time to be thankful and thankful I am for wild steelhead!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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
    Thats why they make 25mg extended release add....umm nvm. 5 hour energy

    Re: Salmon River Report 2012

    Toby,

    My two favorite tributaries to Lake Ontario are not stocked. The state has documented natural reproduction in both of these streams.

    Also, why the need to call me out? What in the world would make you any sort of authority on anything related to the biological processes of any water dwelling species?

    You called me out on my last post speaking about the Skeena system. Have you ever been there? Have you ever fished for steelhead in any of the Pacific drainages? Do you have any knowledge of the process of anadramous fish from the Pacific? Do you have any experience in anadramous research?

    Did you know that steelhead are stocked out west, too? Does that make them less than wild? I'd love to hear you fish for rainbow trout exceeding 20", as many western states define their steelhead, and say that they were not wild fish. I just don't understand your berating posts, bro.
