Salmon River (Ball Park)

It is fall and the salmon are staging to spawn. Consistency on the lower Salmon River.... both in crowds and in Salmon. From what I hear the DSR has epic runs of Chinook. I fished the ball park September 7th. People where hooking up left and right. I use the same methods for Salmon that I due for other fish and refuse to change or deviate from conventional methods. In the end the main question is ... How bad do you want to land a fish? To each their own.

I continued to work upstream, downstream, upstream, downstream....etc. Finally my efforts paid off with this beauty.

I didn't catch any salmon but had a great time and met plenty of good people. Thanks to Matt and Mike for taking the time to acclimate me and share some great conversation. I wont head back to the Salmon until the Domestics and Steelhead enter the system. Hopefully, the crowds will be thinned out buy then.
