    Salmon River Report 2012

    Figured I would start this one up early in anticipation of what is to come. I haven't been on the river since mid-April, might try to make it up once by the end of the month to swing for an Atlantic or Skamania during a white water release. No SpeyNation for me this year, will be floating the WCC instead on Saturday.

    In less than 2 months the salmon are going to start trickling into the Salmon River. I am usually one of the first guys taking advantage of my DSR pass and hit the river a few times in late August and the first week of September and have always been rewarded with some nice fresh fish that are ready to destroy gear. I'm already starting to get the itch!

    Then comes the 3rd week of September, the chrome and big browns start to hit the lower river and the real season begins!

    Just remember this, avoid the river the first 2 weeks of October, especially Columbus Day weekend. Well.....unless you want to be entertained by the mopes snagging fish and all the zombies going out on stringers that will dreadfully be consumed by unsuspecting families and friends.

    Lynch,

    I can't wait either! My leave will be from the 15th of September until the 30th! The wife works until 2:30pm so I will be on the water for the first half of the morning almost every day I can! I am going to also visit my local slob brown spot to see if they are still lurking. Might even be some nice chromed up lake run rainbows in there! Remind me to tell you where that spot is. Biggest brown I've caught there was about 4lbs. Had a day where I didn't catch a fish under 13".

    I will be using my new sharpes bamboo 8/9wt and can't wait to put the wood to some fish!

    My buddy took his drift boat out during the recent water release and swung spey flies between altmar and 2a. He got into an Atlantic for a few minutes and several browns. That's a good start and there are a few fish in the river, even during the summer months. Let the real tick tock begin!

    Oh...this spot is much better than those..fish wise...scenery might be another thing...but who doesn't like to see new things.

    Simms

    What information are you basing your temp. on? I know the DSR was posting incorrect temperatures last week. I am seeing Oswego River is 74 degrees this AM. and peaked at just under 78 yesterday. I know that in the winter the Oswego River generally runs a couple degrees warmer then the Salmon in winter.

    Lynch,

    Thanks for the reports hope that you knee holds up and that you have a good time.. good luck.

    Will do. We'll have to try and get at least one day in on the water.
